Tsing Ma Bridge, Hong Kong Overview

Constructed in 1997, The Tsing Ma Bridge is a 2.2 km long engineering pinnacle that connects the Hong Kong International Airport on Lantau Island with the Hong Kong Kowloon city side. The bridge is named after the two islands - Tsing Yi and Ma Wan that it connects. It is currently the world’s longest suspension bridge, has two decks and is open to both road and rail traffic.

The Tsing Ma Bridge spans over the length of 1377 metres and traverses a height of 206 metres. The upper deck of the bridge is a bi-directional six-lane motorway while the lower deck is comprised of two emergency lanes for trains and cars. In case of a typhoon hit, the railway lines on the bridge remain functioning so as to transfer passengers and their luggage to and from the airport. Due to these facts, the Tsing Ma bridge is one of the major tourist attractions in Hong Kong. At the Northwest corner of Tsing Yi, the Lantau Link Viewing Platform and Visitors centre provide marvellous panoramic views.
