The bridge's first main span twin-deck segment was winched into place just before Christmas.
When completed, Stonecutters Bridge will become the world’s second longest spanning cable-stayed bridge, with a main span of 1018m.
Main span segments, each 18m long and 53m wide and weighing 550 tonnes, will continue to be lifted directly from a delivery barge in the Rambler Channel, gradually extending the cantilevering decks out from each side.
This will result in the two cantilevers meeting in the middle for main span closure, scheduled for the end of 2008.
The 1.6km long crossing will be the centre-piece of the new Route 8 strategic link, a 7.6km long dual three-lane expressway linking Cheung Sha Wan and Tsing Yi Island. The route will improve access between the International Airport and the urban areas of West Kowloon, as well as providing enhanced links to the container port - one of the busiest in the world.
