In April China plans to open its sea bridge connecting Hong Kong, Macau, and Zhuhai, as part of its infrastructure scheme to encourage 250mn people to move into its megacities.

The 34-mile-long structure is the largest cross-sea bridge in the world, according to AFP, ahead of China’s 26.3 mile bridge connecting Qingdao and Huangdao.

The HK$120bn (US$15.3bn) project has been in developed for seven years and is anticipated to run for 120 years.

The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge is expected to be utilised by 40,000 vehicles on a daily basis.

The car-only bridge is allegedly 20 times as long as the Golden Gate Bridge and was constructed using 420,000 tonnes of steel.

The nation constructed four artificial islands to hold the major project.

China received help from experts in the UK, US, Japan, and at least 11 other countries to construct the bridge.
