It is a milestone in building a major project to support development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao bay area.

The cofferdam is 17.6 meters tall and 2.5 meters thick.

Lingdingyang Bridge, with a main span of 1,666 meters, will have a tower standing 270 meters tall, the highest in the world across water.
