From Sydney Morning Herald:
Of the 10 bridges that connect Hong Kong’s extensive road network, none is more impressive than the Tsing Ma crossing linking Kowloon and the rest of the peninsula to the gateway airport on nearby Lantau island.
Opened in 1997, the two-kilometre Tsing Ma is the world’s seventh-longest span suspension bridge and the largest of its type through its carriage of both road and rail traffic.
Its impact on Hong Kong has been immense, not least because it has become a tourist destination in its own right – a landmark to rival any other in a region already rich in such distinguishing features.
But if Tsing Ma is an “old” wonder of the financial dynamo that is Hong Kong, perhaps a more symbolic and equally important bridge in terms of economic impact is the newer and even longer Shenzhen Bay Bridge.
