Tsing Ma Bridge

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Tsing Ma Bridge belongs to the Ten Cole Projects of Hong Kong International Airport, which is not only a key landmark of Hong Kong but also the longest steel bridge for both vehicles and trains in the world. Being a part of No.8 Lantau Link, Tsing Ma Bridge strides over Ma Wan Channel that connects Tsing Yi Island and Ma Wan Bay; together with the Kap Shui Mun Bridge (汲水門橋) which connects Ma Wan and Lantau Island (大嶼山), the bridge of Tsing Ma is just like a double rainbow, which is proved to be one of the most splendid views of Hong Kong. The bridge was listed in 1999 as Top10 Construction Achievements of the 20th Century by the US Architectural Authority.

Being the sole driveway connecting Lantau Island and Hong Kong International Airport as well as the Kap Shui Mun Bridge, Tsing ma Bridge is a two-storey one with a total length of 2.2 km and was completed only for 5 years. Its open air upper story is a dual 3-lane vehicle road, and the lower storey is for 2 metro Tung Chung Lines , a airport express railway and 2 single vehicle passageways for emergency use.
