Re: Infrastructure Reply #25 – 2014-05-09, 14:50:59 I guess a road bridge would be more statistically manly then. I have a thing for international bridges and tunnels, and the Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macau tunnel-bridge to open in 2016 kind of fits the bill. Though Hong Kong and Macau are no longer British/Portuguese colonies, they will not administratively join the mainland for at least another 33 years, while Zhuhai is part of the mainland.[video]http://youtu.be/zTIQpYWDtRU[/video]The bridge joins the outlying Lantau Island of Hong Kong (with the airport, Disneyland and a very tall Buddha statue) with the casinos of Macau (Macau is the Las Vegas/Atlantic City of Asia), and a branch to Zhuhai north of Macao. Macao (and Zhuhai) may branch out to the west to the (soon former) island of Hengqin, which is going to be a special economic zone, and which Macau may partially lease, increasing the size of Macau substantially (Hengqin is three times the size of Macau). Just as one huge project is finishing, they are planning the next, connecting Shenzhen and Zhongshan. That too doesn't seem to include rail, so at some point a third bridge, for better high-speed rail to connect the lines on either side, will probably be built.By the look of things all the cities in the neighbourhood are congealing into a Pearl River megacity.
