Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) and Aedas have unveiled the design of a new boundary crossing that will serve as an important transportation exchange point within the Pearl River Delta, linking Hong Kong, Macau and mainland China. Already under construction, the project is expected to be completed in 2019. The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF) will be sited on a new 150-hectare artificial island located northeast of the Hong Kong International Airport. The Crossing Facility will be the final element of the long awaited Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge, which was originally intended to open in 2016 before a judicial review was filed to identify the project’s environmental impact. When it finally opens, the bridge will be one of the longest in the world (based on how you measure, also potentially the longest to allow motor traffic) and will reduce the travel time between Hong Kong and Macau from 4.5 hours to 40 minutes.
