MAURER designed sliding lamella-expansion joints for the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau-Bridge
Zhuhai, Munich. Presently, the 35 km long Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge
(HZMB) is being constructed over the Pearl River Delta. One of many technical
challenges is the Jianghai Bridge, a cable stayed bridge of 700 m main span.
For the expansion joints, the designers had foreseen recesses in the end steel
girder, which are the location where the joints shall be anchored. MAURER
designed expansion joints that could be easily inserted into the prefabricated
recesses and connected to the bridge deck.
