Steady construction progress during pandemic: 4 months ahead of previous delivery date


Funded with a total investment of about 100 million yuan designated for 2 bridges, Sanshan Luweiqiao Waterway Bridge Project is located at Wenhanhu Lake Park in the Nanhai Area of Sanlongwan. Geographically advantaged as it is, the project spans Luweiqiao Waterway from south to north, which is seen as not only an essential part of Wenhanhu Lake Park, but also a key infrastructure that improves local pedestrian network and economic growth.

The project was kicked off on December 15th, 2020, as contracted to wrap up on December 31st, 2021. In a spirit of professionalism, the Construction Bureau of Nanhai Area of Sanlongwan was expected to finish the project 4 months ahead of the original plan, in spite of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that had added more challenge to the construction work.

According to Zou Guanfei, head of Planning and Construction Department of Construction Bureau of Nanhai Area of Sanlongwan, during the construction, prevention and control work against the virus has to come first. As planned, the construction will finish paving marble on the bridge deck this June and installing lighting devices for the main body of the bridge by the end of August.


Details on construction sites


In addition, in order to ensure consistency with local identities defined by Wenhanhu Lake Area, the local authority has started to collect names from the general public. The submission will last until the end of this month.

Sanshan Luweiqiao Waterway Bridge marks another important breakthrough in "Beautiful Sanshan" Blueprint. In 2020, Nanhai Area of Sanlongwan unveiled its "Three-Year Action Plan for the Beautiful Sanshan", planning to build more than 100 parks/green spaces and more than 50 kilometers of waterfront roads in 3 years. In a strategic view, Sanshan will be developed into a demonstration zone for ecological construction in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
