Haicang tunnel to wrap up tunneling this year end
City transit authorities announced last week that work on the forthcoming Haicang tunnel is approximately 80 percent complete.
Tunneling work is scheduled to wrap up by the end of the year. The tunnel is slated to open for public use by the end of 2020. The new roadway connecting the island of Xiamen and the mainland is more than seven kilometers long.
The tunnel itself is 6.3 kilometers in length, including 2.8 kilometers undersea.
