Macau - Friendѕhip Bridge 友誼大橋


Stamp Issue : 1999-12-20 

Friendѕhip Bridge (Ponte de Amizade) was built to ease the traffic congestion of the original Macau-Taipa Bridge. As the second bridge connecting Macau and Taipa, it is also called "New Macau-Taipa Bridge" and is the longest of the three bridges linking Macau and Taipa.
Built in wavy shape, it is a cable-stayed bridge made with piles and concretes. The construction was started in 1990 and completed in 1994. Including 800 meters of viaduct, the bridge is 4700 meters long in total and is 18 meters wide. The two upraises are about 30 meters above sea level in order to facilitate seaway traffic.

澳門友誼大橋是為解決澳氹大橋的交通擠塞而建,也是第二座連接半島和氹仔的橋,故又稱新澳氹大橋。 它是連接澳門半島和氹仔三座橋梁中最長的一條橋。
