False concrete tests nab 21

21 people have been arrested in Hong Kong for corruption after allegedly submitting false concrete strength tests on the 30km-long mega bridge being built to connect Hong Kong to Zhuhai and Macau. 

The 55km project involves a 29.7km bridge, artificial islands and a 6km+ section of underwater tunnel beneath one of the world’s busiest shipping channels. The first ever Pearl River Estuary road connection will eventually join together more than 22 million people in one of the region’s economic centres. 

The arrests came following a week of tests by Hong Kong’s Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) which showed sample tests had been falsified by executives and technicians since April 2015. 

Budgeted to cost USD17bn, the project has experienced delays, budget overruns and 10 worker deaths.
