Photos of Donghai Bridge

Wendy, her parents, Yifan and I went to the Donghai bridge today. It is the second time for me to get onto the bridge, and the first time for others. Maybe is the second bridge Yifan has ever been to (with the first one as Nanpu Bridge).

You can check my previous entry on Donghai Bridge to know the background of this bridge.

To be short, it is the longest sea bridge in the world with 32.5 km on the sea, and another about 10 km on the land or the Yangshan Deep Water Port.

This time, I took my camera with me so I can show you a little bit of the bridge, and the island.

Below: Rocks again. Next time I go there, I will make sure I climb to the top of the mountain. Yangshan is, anyway, the second hill in Shanghai.

    Can you give me an idea of speed limits on the bridge. Is there any place to stop half way along? I am also interested to know weather conditions in July, as I plan to be here during the solar eclipse of 2009.

  4. @Martin, the speed limit is 80 km/hour, and there is no single place along the way for cars to stop – there are emergency lane and parking area, but not for “tourist” use.
