‘Nail houses’ in China: Construction put to a halt https://www.thestructuralengineer.info/news-center/news/item/657-nail-houses-in-china-construction-put-to-a-halt https://www.thestructuralengineer.info/news-center/news/item/657-nail-houses-in-china-construction-put-to-a-halt ‘Nail houses’ in China: Construction put to a halt

Construction work in China is taking place at a frenzied pace the last few years, but since all that new infrastructure requires space, in many occasions buildings have to be torn down and residents to move in order to make room for new projects. There are however, dwellings that stand alone like a nail that refuses to be hammered down, the so-called ‘nail houses’, when owners resist dispossession of their land by developers or hold out for better compensations.

The South-to-North Water Diversion Project (SNWDP), also called the South–North Water Transfer Project, is an ongoing Chinese effort to channel 45 billion m3 of water annually from the Yangtze River in southern China to the country's less fertile northern regions, through three canal systems. The SNWDP, which has up to now cost more than $79 billion, is the largest and longest water diversion project in the world, and benefits the greatest number of people and regions.

The world's longest sea bridge will also be ‘green’, featuring electric vehicle charging stations https://www.thestructuralengineer.info/news-center/news/item/615-the-world-s-longest-sea-bridge-will-also-be-green-featuring-electric-vehicle-charging-stations https://www.thestructuralengineer.info/news-center/news/item/615-the-world-s-longest-sea-bridge-will-also-be-green-featuring-electric-vehicle-charging-stations The world's longest sea bridge will also be ‘green’, featuring electric vehicle charging stations

The first major combined bridge and tunnel sea-crossing project in China is the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge project. Consisting of three cable-stayed bridges and one 6-km sea crossing tunnel, it will have a total length of 55 km. It will be the world’s longest sea bridge and will link three cities in China's Pearl River Delta — creating one mega-city of 42 million people and slashing travel time between Hong Kong and Chinese city Zhuhai from three hours to just 30 minutes.
