China is all set to unveil the world’s longest sea bridge – connecting the three cities of Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macau – next month. Final preparations are reported to be completed and the bridge would open for traffic once the formal inauguration is held.

The 55-kilometre sea bridge has a total of six lanes and has four tunnels and four artificial islands. It is reported that the steel used in the construction could have been used to make 60 structures identical to the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Construction began in 2011 and was expected to be completed within five years. However, a number of delays due to accidents, permissions and allegations of corruption hindered progress. Nonetheless, the nearly US 2 billion dollar-bridge is now set to open for vehicular traffic and would cut travel time significantly between the three cities.
