China started the construction of the Xihoumen road-rail bridge. The bridge is a cable-stayed bridge that will connect the Jintang and Cezi islands in the Zhoushan archipelago, Zhejiang Province. It is expected to be completed in 2028 and will be the world’s longest span road-rail bridge.
The Xihoumen road-rail bridge is part of the Ningbo-Zhoushan Port Group Development Project. The project aims to develop the Ningbo-Zhoushan port into a major international hub. The bridge will improve transportation between the Jintang and Cezi islands, which will help to boost economic development in the region.
The bridge is also expected to have a positive impact on the environment. It will reduce traffic congestion on the ferries that currently connect the islands, which will help to reduce air pollution.
The construction of the Xihoumen road-rail bridge is a major undertaking, but it is a sign of China’s commitment to infrastructure development. The bridge is expected to be a major economic and environmental boon for the Zhoushan archipelago and for China as a whole.
