Flipper Traffic

The new 50 km (31 mi) Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge will be a series of bridges, tunnels and man-made islands connecting Hong Kong with China. A huge, colossal project, no doubt.

But remember, Hong Kong drives on the left (the "wrong side") while China drives on the right.

One of the more striking features will be the "flipper bridge" section which is designed to flip drivers from one side to the other. Although this could have been achieved with one simple overpass on land, the architects want to "celebrate" the change in traffic with this more elaborate feature.

I think it's pretty cool, though I would probably want a designated driver.

At first I thought this was about how many swimmers were at the pool in Goliad . . .
