Bridge project “HZMB” Hongkong-Zhuhai-Macao-Bridge
Named the HKZM Bridge, the structure consists of three cable-stayed bridges, three artificial islands and one undersea tunnel spanning 55 kilometres through the Lingdingyang channel. The route connects the three major cities of Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macau on the Pearl River Delta. The 29-kilometre section of the HKZM Bridge will be one of the world's longest bridges.
The bridge is expected to cost 110 billion yuan ($15.9 billion). Originally set to be opened to traffic in October 2016 the structure was completed on 14 November 2017 and is planned to open to vehicular traffic on 1 July 2018.
To fulfil the high requirements on road surfacing the Chinese engineers decided on gussasphalt (mastic asphalt). Therefore they ordered 38 gussasphalt cookers und 4 finishers from Linnhoff & Henne.
