On the morning of August 7, the shield machine for West Line Tunnel of the Shantou Gulf Tunnel arrived at the designated location of the receiving shaft on the north bank, thus double-line connection of the Shantou Gulf Tunnel achieved. This indicates that the main work of the submarine tunnel part, the most difficult part of the tunnel project, was successfully completed.

The first domestic super-large-diameter muddy water shield machine with independent intellectual property rights is used for the West Line Tunnel. It can be called as "The Pillars of a Great Power" for high-end underground engineering equipment, and has also created a new record for super projects of domestic high-tech equipment casting.

The construction of the Shantou Bay Tunnel is of great significance for improving the Cross-sea Channel Network of the Shantou Inner Bay, accelerating the development of the Shantou Special Economic Zone, facilitating the construction of provincial sub-central cities, and building a modern coastal economic belt. After the double-line connection of the submarine tunnel, the construction of the bay tunnel will focus on some tunnels in the land area, especially the construction of the open-cut section of the north bank tunnel and the entrance and exit ramps.
