China’s sea bridge could be adrift
12 Authorities overseeing construction of the world’s longest sea bridge are working to allay concerns that parts of the structure are drifting away.
Construction of the 55km link connecting Hong Kong, Macau and mainland China involves the building of artificial islands, new roads and a tunnel. Photos taken earlier this month of the shoreline of one of the islands show waveabsorbing concrete blocks separated from the protective barrier and partly submerged. The photos have prompted concern about the structural integrity of the island.
