Zhuhai China, August 18th, 2011: artificial islands site of hong kong - zhuhai - macau bridge in Guang dong China.
The in-construction Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge is a series of bridges and tunnels that will connect the west side of Hong Kong to Macau and the Guangdong province city of Zhuhai, which are situated on the west side of the Pearl River Delta. The proposed 50 km (31 mi) link is expected to cost US$10.7 billion. With its length, it would become one of the landmarks within the area. Though overall length exceeds the Second Lake Pontchartrain Causeway in the United States, which is 38.4 km (23.9 mi) long according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the longest bridge section (between the artificial islands containing the Macau exit of the tunnel and the Macau border facilities), which will include three cable-stayed spans with spans between 280–460 m (920–1,510 ft), will be 22.8 km (14.2 mi) long. Construction formally began on 15 December 2009. It is due to be completed in 2015-2016.
