Guangdong invests 120 million to build bridge idle 3 years cannot use?

Guangdong invested 120 million yuan (RMB, the same below) to build the Red Sea bridge, has been idle for 3 years and put into use, the so-called “sleeping bridge” behind what is the secret?

Located at the intersection of Dongguan, Huizhou and Guangzhou in Guangdong province, the 687-meter-long Red Sea Bridge is a highway bridge connecting the north and south sides of the Dongjiang River with a total investment of 120 million yuan, invested by Dongguan city. The project started in 2013 and was completed in 2017, but it has been idle for three years, which has aroused the suspicion of the residents nearby.

According to land media, nearby residents said that the bridge has been completed since 2017, but there is still no road at its northern end. Pedestrians and motorcycles have to climb over the slope to get on the bridge, while motor vehicles cannot.

At the northern end of the Red Sea Bridge, one can see the scene. To the west of the bridge is a banana forest, with no road to go; There was a wall to the north, and no road to go; To the east there is a section of the guillotine which is only four or five hundred metres in length. In other words, when the whole Red Sea bridge is completed, there is no way for the northern end of it to be connected to all the places.

As a matter of fact, the Red Sea bridge itself has been built and is ready to be opened to traffic. Now, the most important problem is that the municipal road supporting it is not connected, which leads to the inconvenience for residents to travel. What is the reason for the delay in opening these roads?

It is reported that the nature of the land in this area has not been changed from “basic farmland protection area” to “transportation construction land” due to issues related to the protection of basic farmland, so there is no way to build supporting roads. In the past three years, Dongguan, Huizhou and Guangzhou have been bickering.

Zhang Dihan, chief engineer of the Transportation Bureau in Zengcheng District, Guangzhou city, Guangdong province, said it took a long time to coordinate the area, which has a lot of arable land and basic farmland.

The 120 million yuan bridge has been idle for three years, causing a waste of resources and inconvenience for local residents to travel.

The above news caused a hot debate among netizens: “All three localities are responsible, guangdong province is even more responsible!” “The red Sea Bridge, which resulted in the high investment in Guangdong due to the disputes of interests and the long delay, has become the main crux of the obstruction of” the ridge of intestine “.

“Projects like this are not limited to Guangdong, but also exist in other places.” A Netizen from Hunan said: “We have this one too. This one has been fixed for a long time. The one near the provincial capital is blocked.”
