For many evenings after work, Sun Ruikang, an employee of the commercial contract department of the bridge project, would sit on the balcony, looking at the bridge over the bay.

"More than four years have passed in such a flash. I am like the bridge, changing every day, growing every day," he said.

Back in the summer of 2018, Zhang Yong, a staff member of the commercial contract department of the bridge project, came to the construction site after a 16-hour journey and joined the team of the bridge builders. He said that the Peljesac Bridge carries the hopes and dreams of generations of Croatians.

During the past four years, Zhang witnessed how teams of builders, regardless of good or bad weather, remained dedicated to their tasks.

For Wu Zhongjian, who works for the safety and quality department of the bridge project, July 28, 2021 was the most memorable day during the construction of the bridge. On that day, the final segments of the bridge were joined, bringing two parts of the Croatian coastline together for the first time.

Wu recalled that many Croatian officials, media personnel and local residents came to witness how the last bridge segments were joined and their hearts were filled with joy. "I also felt overjoyed and proud for being a participant in the construction," Wu said. Not only Chinese builders, but also foreign employees and bridge project partners burst with emotions.
