HZM Bridge may open in May or June
    2018-January-9  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge will open in May or June this year, according to a China Daily report yesterday.

But a precise date has not been fixed because it will partially depend on the construction progress of checkpoint facilities in Zhuhai and Hong Kong, according to the report, which quoted sources familiar with the matter as saying.

The Macao Checkpoint is more likely to be completed earlier, according to the sources.

Meanwhile, policies for cross-border traffic have yet to be reached among the governments of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, Guangdong Province and the Macao SAR.

This includes the details of the cross-administration management mechanism like customs arrangements, emergency rescue plans and cross-border car insurance arrangements.

The Central Government will confirm the date later, according to the sources.

Chief engineer of the HZMB Authority, Su Quanke, said earlier that all work on the principal section — a 29.6-kilometer bridge-island-tunnel complex — is expected to be completed in early February and the contractors will conduct an official handover ceremony.

Except for the principal section, the bridge also consists of ports and link roads in Zhuhai and the Macao and Hong Kong SARs. Those works are conducted by the respective governments.

The 55-kilometer bridge, 20 times the length of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, connects Hong Kong in the east of the Pearl River Estuary with Macao and Zhuhai in the west.

It took six years of preparation and eight years to build the world’s longest sea bridge.
