 Australian media takes inventory of Chinas engineering miracle: Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge Beijing new airport list


Reference News Network April 25th reported that the Sydney Morning Herald website published in April 23rd reported that the longest cross sea bridge is the latest achievement of Chinese engineering. Soon, the Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge will be opened to traffic. The following are the five most impressive achievements in modern Chinese engineering. The longest cross sea bridge in the 1. world It is reported that the Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge will be opened in July. It will take only 40 minutes to drive from mainland China to Hong Kong International Airport and to Macao. The 55 kilometer bridge is supported by 4 artificial islands, the report said. Each island is built by placing 120 steel cylinders (22 meters in diameter and 50 meters in height) into the sea bed. One designer described the technology as planting trees in the sea, so that the island can have a solid foundation. In order to avoid the busy route of Hongkong airport, the bridge actually extends into a 6.7 kilometer tunnel. At the deepest point, the tunnel is 46 meters below the water. The Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge is expected to be officially opened in July 1st. This is the day of Hongkongs return to 21st anniversary. 2. deep submersible Scientists say the underwater glider Haiyan has created a new world record, diving down to 8213 meters deep in Mariana Trench. Previously, Chinas newest UAV launched its first deep sea diving, the report said. It dives into the depths of the South China Sea below 3500 meters. It looks like a clown fish. The purpose of the construction of hidden dragon three is to carry out resource exploration in the seabed 4500 meters deep. It is said that it is quieter than the previous submersible. 3. top suspension bridge It is reported that the North Pan River Bridge in Guizhou, China, stands over 560 meters above a river, making it the tallest bridge in the world. The bridge is suspended from a steep valley with cables. It is equivalent to a skyscraper of 200 layers. The bridge was opened in December 2016, enabling people to use the expressway from Zhejiang to Yunnan faster. 4. green skyscrapers Reported that Shanghai Center Tower is 632 meters high, the second highest building in the world. It is also the most environmentally friendly tall building, and won the LEED platinum certification of the US Green Building Council. Reported that its multiple wind turbines provide some of the electricity it uses. It collects rainwater and reuses it. Shanghai Center Tower has 24 air gardens, enabling the building to be naturally refrigerant and warm. These air gardens have cafes and roads, reducing the need for people to go out in buildings. It was completed in 2016. It has the fastest elevators and the highest viewing platform in the world. 5. giant Airports It is reported that someone has described it as a flower or a Phoenix. The new airport in Beijing will be completed in October 2019. By then, it will have the largest terminal in the world with an area of 700 thousand square meters. Reported that it will be able to absorb 100 million passengers per year and 4 million tons of cargo. The source of this article: Reference News Editor: Cao Yi _NN5778
