Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Works Proceed According to Schedule

Reclamation work for the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (Hong Kong section) is proceeding according to plan and original design, reports the government.

The Highways Department made the statement today, refuting media claims another seawall collapse has occurred.

The statement said that what the aerial photographs in the media report show is actually the construction of a temporary rockfill platform and a temporary seawall, and the installation of stone columns, all of which are normal reclamation processes.

According to the department, inspections have found no abnormal extension of the seawall.

The department also added that the reclamation has been done within the gazetted boundary, adding requirements of the Environmental Impact Assessment have been fulfilled.
