The proposed HZMB is a large sea crossing linking the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), Zhuhai City of Guangdong Province and Macao Special Administrative Region. It will meet the demand of passenger and freight land transport among Hong Kong, the Mainland (particularly the region of Pearl River West) and Macao. Also, it will establish a new land transport link between the east and west coasts of the Pearl River, sprouting economic and sustainable development in the three places. The anticipated commissioning date of HZMB is end of 2016.
The main bridge of HZMB will be a dual 3-lane carriageway with a bridge-cum-tunnel structure form. It will run from the artificial island off Gongbei of Zhuhai to another artificial island just west of the HKSAR boundary. Currently, various HZMB and related projects have been commenced. In this event, members will be guided to visit the sites of HZMB by the representatives of HZMB Authority. Members will also be briefed with the planning and construction of the HZMB in the three places.
