More than 5,000 workers stayed at the construction site of Huangmao Sea Channel. Five main towers on the Huangmao Sea Channel and Gaolan Port bridges have now reached the height of over 100 m (328 ft). Construction on four interchanges of the project has been moving forward and 55 percent of the approaching bridges have been finished, as well as 70 percent of the tunneling of the Xiangshan Tunnel.

Construction of the renovation project started in April and works, such as greenbelts, cross-operations on water areas, and new overpasses, are underway.
Zhuhai residents will have unparalleled convenience with urban transportation as projects for the citywide transportation network show signs of development.
