Hong Kong, China
Anthony Ng Architects
As part of the new town development on Tung Chung Island a new link was required between the recently constructed housing blocks and the community leisure centre. The main link bridge was constructed using a series of independent trestles which makes the bridge act much like a pontoon bridge.
The Vee-prop bridge meets the link bridge at its midpoint and is able to rotate at the prop position to accommodate any future settlements. This box-girder bridge is 60 metres long with one central Vee-shaped pier.
The circular steel sections supporting the bridge have been machined in a cigar shape to enhance the slenderness of the structure.
