Bridge - Bridge - Tacoma Narrows: In 1940 the first Tacoma Narrows Bridge opened over Puget Sound in Washington state, U.S. Spanning 840 metres (2,800 feet), its deck, also stiffened by plate girders, had a depth of only 2.4 metres (8 feet). This gave it a ratio of girder depth to span of 1:350, identical to that of the George Washington Bridge.

On the second week of June, 2018, I was among the Nigerian journalists that witnessed the opening of the world’s longest sea crossing bridge over the Pearl River, Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge.Here are some data points about Macau tourism and Macau day trips in 2018 from to put things into perspective. 1. Annual number of visitors to Macau: 36 Million in 2018, that is 15% up since 2016. 2. Number of visitors coming from greater China: 28 million 3. Percentage of same day visitors (day trippers from Hong Kong or mainland China): 50% 4.Macau Outer Ferry Terminal is in a short driving distance of about 2.5km to landmark in Macau - Ruins of the Church of St Paul. It provides ferry services between Macau and Sheung Wan, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong International Airport in Hong Kong, and Shekou and Fuyong (Shenzhen Airport) in Shenzhen.
Main water flow of Pearl River Delta (PRD) The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge ( HZMB ) is locating at the major water flow path of the PRD. As such, extreme caution must be exercised when designing for the HZMB so as not to impede the flow and flood discharge capacity of PRD and upstream, jeopardizing the discharge capacity of the Pearl River Estuary. Assessments were carried out during the.
At an estimated 20 miles, it would still be dwarfed by the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge-tunnel system, which traverses 30 miles of water. The structure spanning the greatest expanse of open sea.
