China bridges the gap to Hong Kong - The Longest Sea crossing Bridge in History




The 55 km bridge was originally due to open in 2016, but repeated delays pushed that to this year. A $20-billion bridge connecting Hong Kong and Macau to the mainland Chinese city of Zhuhai is set to finally open this week, marking the completion of the longest sea-crossing bridge ever built, nine years after construction began.


China has completed the major work of the world’s longest sea bridge on schedule, after its lighting system was installed and tested.

It took six years preparation, and eight years to build the 55-kilometre-long bridge linking Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macao.#PowerToBuild

The 55 km bridge was originally due to open in 2016, but repeated delays pushed that to this year.

It is a key element of China's plan for a Greater Bay Area covering 56,500 square km across southern China, and encompassing 11 cities, including Hong Kong and Macau, that are home to a combined 68 million people.

Proponents of the idea say the bridge will cut journey times between the cities from three hours to 30 minutes, which they say will enable commuters and tourists to easily move around the region.

Despite the focus on drive time however, private car owners in Hong Kong will not be able to cross the bridge without a special permit.

Most drivers will have to park at the Hong Kong port, switching to shuttle bus or special hire cars once they are through immigration.

Shuttle buses cost $8-$10 for a single trip depending on the time of day.

The bridge project has come in for fierce criticism in Hong Kong, where there was little public demand or appetite for greater links to either Macau or Zhuhai, and fears the city will be swamped by tourists from mainland China, CNN said.

In 2016, Hong Kong saw 56.7 million tourist arrivals, compared to 37.6 million for the UK, a much larger country.




Friends, Jesus Christ is coming soon.  Prepare to meet your Lord and Saviour clothed with spotless garment. He knows you, where you live and what you are struggling with.  He wants to help you, if you will come to Him today.

Will you accept Him today?


Say this Prayer: 

Lord Jesus I come to you as a sinner.

I am sorry for my sins, forgive me.

I believe you died for my sins, and was raised for my justification. 

Come into my heart be my Lord and Saviour, 

Give me the grace to serve You in truth and spirit. 

Thank You for saving my soul - I am born again!


His grace be with you all.
