After visit, we went back to the construction office and the engineer explained the construction details to us.
The segment was transported through the marine transport route from Dongguan to Tuen Mun.
The most difficult part was the segment erection in curve area. There are totally 1326 segment and had installed 1285 segment.

They employed steel mold for the key segment and concreted the gap between key segment and the spans of the viaduct. The gap used for adjustment if any deviation within tolerance.
The following photo showed the segments linked up other by temporary pre-stressing.
