CCCC Fourth Harbor Engineering Co., Ltd. has recently signed the construction project for the civil works of Huai River outward channel expansion project with the Huaian Transportation Bureau, with a contract value of some 196 million yuan and a construction period of 36 months.
The civil works of the ship lock expansion project in Gaoliangjian involve the construction of the head and tail bays, lock chamber, navigation wall, breasting dolphin, approach channel revetment, anchorage, service bridge in the lock zone and loop highway bridge, as well as dyke reinforcement.
The project is another lock project signed by the company in the area after undertaking Huaian third-line ship lock project.
The ship lock is an integrated hub linking the Huai River, the Hongze Lake and north Jiangsu’s general irrigation canal as well as an important junction via which coal resources are shipped from Anhui and Henan to Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shanghai.
The expansion project will remove the bottleneck on the original ship lock, meet the need of water transport development in Jiangsu and boost the economic development of the Yangtze River Delta.
