The $15BN Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is fifteen times the length of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge. This engineering masterpiece slashes the travel time between HK and Mainland city Zhuhai from 4 hrs to 45 mins, drastically reducing journey times and bringing over 68 million people closer together.

The HZMB Main Bridge runs from the artificial island off Gongbei of Zhuhai to the eastern artificial island for the tunnel section just west of the HKSAR boundary.

The project includes a 29.6 km dual 3-lane carriageway in the form of bridge-cum-tunnel structure comprising a tunnel of about 6.7 km; two artificial islands for the tunnel landings west of the HKSAR boundary; and associated works including civil and structural works, environmental mitigation, drainage, electrical and mechanical, traffic control and surveillance system, etc.
