China Pictorial (English) - - FEATURES -

As­sis­tant Di­rec­tor of the HZMB Au­thor­ity and Di­rec­tor of the Au­thor­ity’s Plan­ning and Con­tract Depart­ment Joined the project in 2008

Be­fore join­ing the bridge project, Gao Xinglin worked for Guang­dong Provin­cial Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion. Seek­ing more chal­leng­ing work, he led a team to en­gage in bid­ding, plan­ning and con­tracts man­age­ment, as well as early op­er­a­tion and main­te­nance man­age­ment for the bridge. Gao re­mains di­rec­tor of the Plan­ning and Con­tract Depart­ment, so he is still re­spon­si­ble for over­see­ing plan­ning for us­age of the ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence tech­nol­ogy in the op­er­a­tion of the bridge.

Gao stud­ies English, reads books and works out every day. “Con­tin­u­ous learn­ing mo­ti­vates our team to keep mov­ing for­ward,” he says. “Read­ing helps me find in­ner peace so I can avoid get­ting flus­tered.”

He at­tributes the suc­cess of the bridge to the team’s de­vo­tion and good tim­ing. The achieve­ment of both in­di­vid­u­als and the project in­ter­twined with the times. “The bridge mir­rors the strength of the coun­try in the world,” he says. “As an en­gi­neer, I con­trib­uted ev­ery­thing I could. I feel more honor than pride. It was a re­spon­si­bil­ity.”
