Hong Kong International Airport Bridge installed on site

The main structure of Sky Bridge at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) has been successfully delivered to its final position, concluding the prefabrication phase of the construction programme to mark an important project milestone. The 200m long Sky Bridge at Hong Kong International Airport will directly connect Terminal 1 with the North Satellite Concourse, and is anticipated to be the world's longest airside bridge. The design of a glazed viewing deck will allow passengers to enjoy spectacular views across the airport and to the planes passing below. Travellators, seating areas and F&B outlets are included to further enhance the passenger experience.

To minimise impact on HKIA's busy operations, Sky Bridge was prefabricated in Zhongshan. Three precast segments were transported to the assembly yard in the midfield area of HKIA from September to October 2019. The segments were then assembled to form the main structure of the bridge and the main structure of the bridge, weighing over 5000 tonnes, was transported over 3km on HKIA's apron from the assembly yard to the bridge's final position. It was then erected on the bridge towers in early January.
