The Stonecutters design dates back to 1999, when the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Highways Department launched a competition to find a landmark bridge. Halcrow/Flint & Neill/ Dissing + Weitling/Shanghai Municipal Engineering Design Group JV won the competition and developed the reference scheme, but the detailed design contract went to Arup in 2001 (NCE 1 March 2001). While the aesthetic aspects of the reference scheme had to be adhered to, Arup made some design changes.
