Sai Van Bridge

Sai Van Bridge (Portuguese: Ponte de Sai Van; Chinese: 西灣大橋) is a cable-stayed bridge in Macau inaugurated on December 19, 2004. The bridge measures 2.2 kilometers (1.4 mi) long and is the third one to cross the Praia Grande Bay connecting Taipa Island and Macau Peninsula. It features a double-deck design, with an enclosed lower deck to be used in the event of strong typhoons when the other two bridges connecting Taipa and Macau Peninsula, namely Ponte Governador Nobre de Carvalho and Ponte de Amizade, are closed. Space is also reserved in the lower deck for a rail-link in the future (Macau Light Transit System).
