Hangzhou Bay is a gulf in the East China Sea. For the
Zhejiang province this is a first class project as both
ends of the Hangzhou Bay Bridge are in the province´s
cities of Cixi and Zhapu. The bridge is the main project
of the 5.200 kilometres national highway between Heilongjiang
Province in the north toi the Hainan Province in the
Qiantang River Tide
Hangzhou Bay is known both in China
and internationally for it´s fantastic tides,
a natural wonder that is a major tourist attraction.
. The tides are moving in a speed that can reach 30
kilometres (19 miles), sounds like thunder and the waves
can be up to 8 meters (25 feet) high. One reason for
the study of the project for a decade is the tide which
will make the construction process complicated.
