Managing complex programmes
The bridge will support a dual three-lane carriageway over the Pearl River Estuary – one of the world’s busiest shipping channels.
Formed from pre-stressed concrete box sections, the bridge will be constructed using the balanced cantilever method.
Mott MacDonald designed substantial sections of the viaduct, and was responsible for all geotechnical, highways, electrical and mechanical, utilities, and other civil engineering services.
We also supervised the design and construction of the 30km Chinese section of the link, including a major cable-stayed bridge, two man-made islands and a 6km long immersed tube tunnel across the Pearl River estuary.
