- 2020 - In Progress
- Guangdong Provincial Highway Construction Group Co., Ltd.
- CCCC Highway Consultants Co., Ltd. (HPDI)
- 34 km
Lion Ocean Link has a total length of 34 kilometres, which includes a suspension bridge with a 'double-decker section' with 2 times 8 lanes.
The pylons are approximately 350 metres high and the bridge will get a world record span of approximately 2.180 metres.
The huge anchor blocks are carefully proportioned and
composed of simple geometric forms which clearly reveal their function.
A fruitful co-lab
The Lion Ocean Link project is an outcome of Dissing+Weitling's fruitful and close collaboration with HPDI Guangzhou. The two partners are current working together on two other grand constructionens: Longmen Bridge and Huangmaohai Link.
