Typhoon Shanzhu 16 gale hit Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge as hard as rock

Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge is still as solid as a rock when typhoon 16 gale hits. Does it make a lot of rumor people face it? The world's longest sea crossing bridge across the Lingding Sea once again withstood the test of strong typhoon. Not only the main bridge, undersea tunnel and artificial island, but also the guardrail and street lamp on the bridge deck are safe. The design life of Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge is 120 years. It can resist 16 typhoon, 8 earthquake and 300000 ton ship collision in safety performance.

Recently, the Zhuhai Macao Bridge in Hong Kong may not be able to withstand the wind force up to 17 levels of 'Shanzhu', with a picture called 'embarrassment of the year' by netizens. The China Meteorological Administration has just refuted the rumors through microblog, which is false.

According to the China Meteorological Administration, the wind force of 'mangosteen' when it landed in the Philippines was level 17, but it was still a long way from China. At that time, the Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge was not affected.

After passing through the Philippines, the structure of 'mangosteen' was destroyed due to the high mountains of Luzon Island. When entering the South China Sea, the wind force of 'mangosteen' had weakened to level 15.

According to the latest forecast results of the Central Meteorological Observatory, the area where the Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge is located will encounter the maximum wind force before the typhoon lands, about 14 to 15 degrees.

The design and construction of Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge can resist the typhoon of level 16. Xu Yonghua, deputy director of the Hong Kong roads department, also said that the design of Hong Kong Zhuhai Macao Bridge has adopted quite high standards and passed the wind tunnel test, with sufficient wind resistance and high safety factor.
