The fourth Macao-Taipa bridge is expected to be finished by the second quarter of 2024, the Public Works Bureau (DSOP) announced

Work on the bridge commenced on 6 March 2020 and was originally planned for completion by January 2024. However, DSOP’s Director, Lam Wai Hou, explained during a press conference that the disruption caused by the pandemic over the past three years had led to construction delays at “varying levels.” 

The head of the DSOP’s Infrastructure Department, Ng Hong, noted that 85 percent of the bridge, which will link the two land reclamation areas, Zone A and E1, had already been completed.

Ng also stated that there were only two main steel box girders left to hoist and that they would be in place by March of next year. 

Spanning 3.1 kilometres, the fourth bridge consists of eight lanes, two of which are reserved for motorcycles. When it opens, it is expected to significantly alleviate traffic on Macao’s three other bridges 

With the 6.7 billion pataca project nearing completion, the DSOP recently organised a competition that allows residents to suggest a name for the project.
