Third Harbor Engineering, which is in charge of the project, plans to complete the longest road tunnel by the end of 2021.

The tunnel, 10.8 km long and 43.6 m wide, is being built under Taihu Lake in eastern China. This lake is the third largest freshwater lake in the country.

The tunnel will be a continuation of the Changzhou-Wuxi Highway, with a total length of almost 44 km.

The road located under the reservoir will become part of the 43.9 km highway between the cities of Jiangsu – Changzhou and Wuxi.

Project Team Leader Yang Guodong said that all floors of the tunnel have now been completed.
