Hong-Kong Cross Bay Link

The Cross Bay Link carries four lanes of highway traffic and a cycle route across the Junk Bay from Lohas Park in the east to a new tunnel link towards Lam Tin in the west. The 1.8km long crossing incorporates a distinctive 220m main span ‘eternity arch’ design over a 160m wide navigation channel. Tall asymmetric arches are arranged in a rotational relationship rather than mirrored, leading to the appearance of an infinity figure in elevation. The design evolved the client’s reference scheme to dramatically improve the aesthetic through development of the arch form. A dual level pedestrian deck proposal reduces the overall width of the bridge deck.
