The world’s longest bridge and tunnel sea-crossing, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, officially opened to the public on Wednesday 24 October 2018. At 55km long, the bridge will shorten the journey time from Hong Kong International Airport to Zhuhai from four hours to 45 minutes and will strengthen Hong Kong’s position as Asia’s gateway and a hub for multi-destination travel within the Greater Bay Area.

Spanning the sea from an artificial island near Hong Kong International Airport to Macao and the mainland Chinese city of Zhuhai, the bridge contains enough steel to build 60 Eiffel Towers and is designed to last 120 years, two decades longer than the lifespan of most major sea-cross bridges.

Hong Kong Tourism Board regional director – Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific, Andrew Clark said the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge will reinforce Hong Kong’s position as Asia’s gateway. “The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge will be a fantastic tool to further enhance the destination’s tourism offering by putting a wealth of diverse cultural attractions, including: the stunning ruins of St. Paul’s in Macao; the Statue of Fisher Girl in Zhuhai; the Kaiping Diaolou; the Seven Star Crags in Zhaoqing, all within easy reach,” Clark said.
