The old Humen Bridge in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, China had been the site of the Opium Wars, mayhem, and destruction. Whereas, today’s Humen Bridge represents modern trade routes and economic development for the province. Spanning the Pearl River that flows into the South China Sea, the new bridge is a major transport route. It has reduced the distance between Hong Kong and South China by 120Kms. The old bridge had emplacements and canons around it. The modern one is a large suspension bridge that looks beautiful against the city’s skyline. It is 888 meters long and has six two-way lanes. It has a height of 60 meters so that 1000,000-ton ships can also pass safely from under the bridge.
