The ground-breaking ceremony of the fourth bridge over the Panama Canal, with Wuhan’s CCCC Second Harbor Engineering Company participating in its construction, was held in Panama on December 4 (local time). Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela attended the ceremony and made a speech.

Located in Panama City, this 3.95 km-long cable-stayed bridge will feature a main span of 510m with six car lanes and a two-way metro line, as the biggest bridge project that Chinese enterprises have ever won bids of in American region.

Juan Carlos Varela expressed that the bridge, a shinning pearl of the Panama Canal, was expected to increase traffic and freight transport capacity and improve vessel navigability through the canal.
