Major work on the world's longest sea bridge has passed authorities' evaluation, after its completion in December.

 
The 55-km-long bridge, linking Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macao, took six years to prepare, and eight years to build. 
 
Major work on the project was focused on the 22.9-km-long main bridge, a 6.7-km-long tunnel and an man-made island off the bridge. The latter was considered the most technically demanding part of the whole construction.
 
The bridge will be put into trial operation after its port project is completed and entered by customs, inspection and quarantine, as well as border control authorities.
 
The bridge will cut the travel time between Hong Kong and Zhuhai from three hours to just 30 minutes, bringing the cities in the Pearl River Delta closer together.
