China Completes Bridge on Burma Pipeline Route

A bridge on the Mekong River in southwestern China’s Yunnan Province was completed on Wednesday, marking a major step in the completion of a Sino-Burmese gas pipeline project that is expected to go into operation next year, according to a report by Xinhua. “The bridge is a key part of the pipeline and one of the most difficult engineering projects, given the complicated geographical conditions,” said Hu Hanzhou, general manager of China Railway Major Bridge Engineering Group Co Ltd, the builder of the bridge.
