The Transport Department arranged for the media to visit the bridge before it opened to traffic last month. The Assistant Director (Transportation Project) of the Transport Department, He Weiji, said at the time that when the wind speed reaches 25 kilometers per hour, a warning will be issued, but it can still be used as usual; when the wind speed reaches 40 kilometers (about No. 3 typhoon signal), the pedestrian and cycle lanes will be closed, and cars can continue to drive. However, like other bridges, the speed limit will be lowered or even closed according to the wind speed.
