Worlds longest cross-sea bridge opens to public

Reported by: Shenzhen Daily Released on: 25/Oct/2018

THE Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, the world’s longest cross-sea bridge, opened to public traffic at 9 a.m. yesterday.

The 55-km-long bridge connects China’s southern mainland province of Guangdong with the country’s two special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macao.

Starting yesterday, customs in Guangdong’s Zhuhai, Hong Kong and Macao began to offer round-the-clock services for customs clearance to manage traffic on the bridge.

Both cargo and passenger vehicles pulled into driveways on the bridge via the land customs of Zhuhai yesterday morning.

Coach services also started to link the three destinations via the Y-shaped bridge the same morning. A bus or coach departing from the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities can now reach Zhuhai in about 40 minutes.

Li Meirui, marketing manager of Zhuhai Winkey Supply Chain Co. Ltd., said the bridge could have a radiating effect to Southwest China’s Yunnan and Guizhou provinces, as it connects the mainland’s highway system with the international financial and transportation hubs of Hong Kong and Macao.

She predicts a 20-30 percent growth in business volume thanks to the bridge’s traffic flow into Zhuhai’s international logistics sector, helping to strengthen her company.

The journey between Hong Kong and Zhuhai via road used to take him nearly five hours, or a dozen hours during holidays.

Built with an investment of 126.9 billion yuan (US$18.3 billion), the gigantic project consisting of a series of bridges, artificial islands and an underwater tunnel enables smoother travel that used to be separated by channels.

With the swift new route, the economic belt of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area has become a financial circle that can be looped in just one hour, uniting Hong Kong’s financial services, Guangdong’s industrial manufacturing and Macao’s entertainment industry. (Xinhua)
