BEIJING -- China has established an academic exchange and technology innovation platform for underwater tunnel construction, according to Science and Technology Daily on Monday.

The country's underwater tunnel engineering construction has made continuous progress in the amount and scale in recent years, said the newspaper.

There have been improving demands in cross river and cross-sea tunnels in the fields like railways, highways, water and power supply. Up till June 2019, China has constructed 14 super large underwater shield tunnels in more than 14.5 meters outer diameter, with 19 more sets under construction and 14 sets to be built.
