A steel box girder is being installed on Zhongshan Bridge, which is part of the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Link, on Wednesday. The project contractor said that the construction of the bridge’s upper structure has entered a fast track with the installation of the 490-ton steel box girder. The 24-kilometer link, being built at a total cost of more than 44.69 billion yuan (US$6.99 billion), is comprised of two suspension bridges, two artificial islands and an underground interchange that will link the bridges with an immersed tunnel. Upon the bridge’s completion in 2024, travel time between Shenzhen and Zhongshan will be shortened to about 20 minutes. Cao Yang
