The Big Lift

In a city known for building big, Hong Kong has set the standard for bridges around the world. And the Stonecutters Bridge is like none other. Stretching across the bustling Hong Kong harbour, it’s a spectacular stainless steel cable-stay bridge – the longest of its type in the world. It’s also the site for the biggest “heavy lift” ever attempted on a bridge of its height. This is a 15-billion dollar challenge that’s drawn a team of the top bridge builders in the world to Hong Kong and given them a shot at making bridge-building history.
