A 26.3-km-long cross-sea bridge spanning Qiongzhou Strait is expected to start construction in 2017.
The China’s Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Railways, Hainan Province and Guangdong Province signed an agreement on September 8th to build a 26.3-km-long cross-sea bridge spanning Qiongzhou Strait.
The project is expected to start construction in 2017 and be completed and open for traffic by 2020.
The 20-billion-yuan bridge, linking Xuwen County in Zhanjiang City, Guangdong, and Chengmai County in Hainan, will be made up of two levels, a railway bridge and a road bridge. The railway bridge will allow a designed speed limit of 160 kilometers per hour, and the road bridge will allow a designed speed limit of 100 kilometers per hour.
Upon the bridge’s completion, it will take only 20 minutes to drive across the Qiongzhou Strait. The travel time across the strait by ferry is currently about five hours.
The bridge will link Hainan to an advanced expressway network in Guangdong, Guangxi, Hubei, and Shanghai. It is expected to provide easy access not only for tourists from other parts of the country but also for overseas investment, according to economists.
