The Xiamen-Zhangzhou Cross-sea Bridge
 
The Xiamen-Zhangzhou Cross-sea Bridge officially opened to traffic today, and the toll fee for sedan cars is 25 yuan (about 4 US dollars).
 
With a designed speed of 100 km/h, the double-direction 6-lane cross-sea bridge will shorten the travel time from Xiamen’s Haicang District to Zhangzhou’s harbor district to half an hour, one-quarter of the previous two-hour drive.
 
The main toll gate, which is shaped like a Minnan-style traditional house, is located on Haimen Islet. The highway features both manual toll collection and an Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system.
 
Pedestrians, motorbikes/e-bikes and other motor vehicles with a maximum speed below 70 km/h are prohibited from the bridge.
