Forthcoming Closure of Main Channel of Jiashao Sea-crossing Bridge



The Jiashao (Jiaxing-Shaoxing) Sea-crossing Bridge started construction on Dec 14, 2008, is the second sea-crossing bridge of Zhejiang Province spanning across Hangzhou Bay after Hangzhou Bay Bridge was built. It is expected to halve the driving time from Shaoxing to Shanghai in east China after putting into use in June of 2013. It is said that the main channel will be put to closure at the end of January 2013.
The eight-lane bridge spans 10 km long from Haining County, Jiaxing to Shangyu County, Shaoxing in Zhejiang province. Hangzhou Bay in China, Amazon River Mouth in South America and the Ganges River Mouth in India have the strongest sea tides in the world. Among the three strong tide areas, only bridges across Hangzhou Bay have been built. The highest tide range of Qiantang River Mouth may rise up to 9 meters high, while the current velocity may go faster than 7.5m/s, which is stronger than mountain torrents. The climate of the construction area is usually volatile. Its construction demonstrates the nation's improvements with infrastructure construction.
