China has been endeavoring to encourage their people to immigrate into growing megacities in recent years, which requires the large infrastructure to feed the need.

420,000 tons of steel, 60 times more than the steel used to construct the Eiffel Tower, were mobilized for the construction of the giant bridge

It now will take only an hour to get from Macau to Hong Kong when traveling across the Pearl River Estuary.
They calculated the bridge would cater for forty-thousand times of ingress and egress per day including buses running at 10-minute intervals.
The authorities revealed to build this wonder, they had to use 420,000 tons of steel which is 60 times more than the steel used to construct the Eiffel Tower.
