Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge infrastructure projects in Hong Kong commenced
Wednesday, December 14, 2011
Government Press Release

The Chief Executive, Mr Donald Tsang, officiated at the launching ceremony of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF) today (December 14). The launch of the project signifies a significant step toward further economic integration and development among Hong Kong, the Western Pearl River Delta and Macao.

"The HZMB is the first major cross-boundary infrastructure project jointly undertaken by Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao. With the active participation and involvement of the three governments, a consensus was reached on construction, financing and operation of the project beneficial to all the concerned parties. It is a fine example of co-operation of the three places," Mr Tsang said.

"Upon commissioning, the HZMB will usher in a new era of traffic connections between Hong Kong and the Mainland. The Western Pearl River Delta will fall within a reachable three-hour commuting radius of Hong Kong. This will provide impetus to Hong Kong's long-term economic development and bring new opportunities to various sectors of Hong Kong, including the tourism, financial, trading, commercial and logistics industries."

Implementation of the works of the HZMB in Hong Kong will create many job opportunities. The works that have already obtained funding support from the Legislative Council will create more than 14 000 jobs. The works for the HKBCF commencing today will create about 9 290 jobs, including about 1 410 professional and technical staff and 7 880 labourers.

The HKBCF artificial island, covering some 150 hectares, will be located at the north-eastern waters off Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA). Being the gateway to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region by the HZMB, it will provide efficient and convenient services to inbound and outbound passengers and vehicles.

The HKBCF will be equipped with a comprehensive road system connecting HKIA and Tung Chung New Town, and will also be linked to a strategic road network leading to the Northwest New Territories and other areas of Hong Kong, making the HKBCF a strategic multi-modal transportation hub for Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macao.

In addition, to minimise the environmental impact of the reclamation, a non-dredging seawall construction method will be used for the first time in Hong Kong for the HKBCF reclamation works. The method will make it unnecessary to dredge the soft marine mud in the seabed before backfilling. Instead, interlocked large-diameter steel cells, to be backfilled with inert construction and demolition materials, will be sunk, penetrating through the marine mud and resting on the underlying firmer alluvium to form the perimeter seawall. Reclamation works could thus be carried out at the centre.

This innovative reclamation method can avoid large-scale dredging and disposal of marine deposits. As a result, the release of marine suspended solids and disruption to marine traffic will be minimised.

The Chief Executive added that although the HZMB local projects had been delayed by almost a year because of judicial review, the Government would compress the work schedule through adjustment of construction methods and deployment of additional manpower and machinery.

The Government is confident that the works will be completed as scheduled to meet the target of commissioning the HZMB Main Bridge in 2016.

Bridge en route as work starts on new island
The Standard
Thursday, December 15, 2011

The bridge project linking Hong Kong, Macau and Zhuhai reached an early milestone yesterday with construction starting on a 150-hectare artificial island near the airport.

The Hong Kong section of the project was delayed for a year by a legal challenge over its environmental impact. The artificial island will be built in the waters northeast of Hong Kong International Airport to house the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities of the 30-kilometer Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge.

Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen said work will be speeded up to ensure the project is completed by 2016. Given the delay, the government will amend construction methods and use additional machinery and manpower.

"Construction of the bridge not only will reduce transportation time and cost for travelers and goods on roads, through its connection, the western Pearl River Delta will fall within a reachable three-hour commuting radius of Hong Kong," Tsang said.

The boundary crossing facilities will be located next to the airport and Tung Chung. It will connect Zhuhai and Macau via the Hong Kong Link Road and main bridge.

Sun Ziyu, president of China Harbour Engineering Co, which is responsible for the reclamation works, said potential challenges include the size of the project and the time to complete the job.

"Because it's near Hong Kong International Airport, we cannot only think about our work, [but] flights, airlines and security are top priorities," Sun said.

A non-dredge seawall construction method is being used to build the island, meaning soft marine mud on the seabed is not removed. So the amount of marine mud to be disposed of is reduced by 97 percent.

The government received the green light in September to build the bridge after the Court of Appeal overturned a lower court ruling quashing the environmental protection director's approval for the project.

The appeal judges unanimously overturned the Court of First Instance ruling on a judicial review alleging government failure to conduct proper environmental impact assessments of the crossing facilities and the Hong Kong Link Road. The review was filed in January last year by a Tung Chung resident, Chu Yee-wah, 65.

Two months later, legislators approved HK$48.5 billion in funding for the project. The money is used to fund Hong Kong boundary crossing facilities and the Hong Kong Link Road, as well as the detailed design of the Tuen Mun-Chek Lap Kok Link.

A Transport Department spokesman said construction of the Hong Kong Link Road will start early next year. It is a dual three-lane carriageway 12 kilometers long. Macau and Zhuhai have already started work on their sections of the bridge.

American Piledriving Equipment's 8-hammer “Octakong” vibratory pile driver hammer drove the final record breaking pile in front of a crowd of over 200 people on the South China Sea, who came to witness the world's largest pile drive to grade. The last of 120, 72’ diameter steel piles has been driven into place, completing construction of two circular sea bound walls in the South China Sea, for the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Seaway project.

LCQ3: Nature Conservation
Government Press Release Excerpt
Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Following is a question by the Hon Cheung Hok-ming and a reply by the Secretary for the Environment, Mr Edward Yau, in the Legislative Council today (January 18):

Question:

The authorities have already implemented the New Nature Conservation Policy for more than seven years, and only the projects at two sites of conservation value (i.e. Fung Yuen and Long Valley respectively) have been included under the Management Agreement (MA) Scheme so far; and there has not been any case of successful application for the Public-private Partnership (PPP) Pilot Scheme. In this connection, will the Government inform this Council:

(b) as I have learnt that the Advisory Council on the Environment has earlier indicated its support for the Sha Lo Tung project in Tai Po and the Fung Lok Wai development project in Yuen Long under the PPP Pilot Scheme, yet so far there has not been any progress in implementing such projects, of the reasons for that; and

(b) For part (b) of the question, under the PPP scheme, developments of an agreed scale and plan would be allowed at the ecologically less sensitive portions of the 12 priority sites provided that the developer undertakes to conserve and manage the rest of the site that is ecologically more sensitive on a long-term basis. This scheme not only encourages the participation of private sectors and NGOs in nature conservation, but also balances development and conservation.

We have received a total of six applications to carry out PPP project at the 12 priority sites. In 2008, after deliberation the Advisory Council on the Environment (ACE) supported the Sha Lo Tung PPP project. The project proponent proposed to set up an Ecological Reserve of over 50 hectares at the Sha Lo Tung valley to conserve the biodiversity there. On the other hand, a columbarium and related facilities of about 5 hectares would be set up at the ecologically less sensitive portion of the Sha Lo Tung valley. Since this is a designated project under the Environmental Impact Assessment Ordinance (EIAO), the project proponent submitted the environmental impact assessment (EIA) report on December 30, 2010. Unfortunately, in view of the earlier judicial review relating to the EIAO of the Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macao Bridge (HKZMB), the project proponent withdrew the report on May 16, 2011. Now that the judicial review on the HKZMB has been concluded, it is understood that the project proponent will resubmit the EIA report to the ACE shortly. The project proponent will also apply to the Town Planning Board on land use matters.

Pearl River Delta Bridge work begins
15/12/2011 20:42:00
Macau Daily Times

Construction of the delayed RMB 72.9 billion bridge connecting Hong Kong to Macau and Zhuhai began on Wednesday, after the project was delayed for a year by a legal challenge regarding its environmental impact.

The work will be rushed to meet a 2016 deadline, said Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam Kuen. The HKSAR would catch up on the progress through the compression of programs, and by implementing additional machinery and manpower, he said.

The authorities held a brief launching ceremony on the eastern side of Chek Lap Kok airport. The ceremony marked the beginning of the construction of Hong Kong boundary crossing facilities, the budget of which reaches HKD 30.4 billion.

A 150-hectare artificial island will be built in the waters northeast of Hong Kong International Airport to house the boundary crossing facilities. This is the most important project with the largest investment among the Hong Kong section’s three major projects.

The other two, the Hong Kong Link Road as well as the detailed design of Tuen Mun-Chek Lap Kok Link and Tuen Mun Western Bypass, are altogether expected to cost HKD 48.5 billion.

Construction of the Hong Kong section was originally planned to start in late 2010, but was delayed after a retired resident living near the bridge site challenged the government’s decision.

Tsang said the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge is strategically important to further facilitate the economic integration and development of the three territories. The project is expected to reduce transportation time by 60 to 80 percent for travellers and goods as well as transportation costs.

Upon completion of the bridge, western Pearl River Delta cities will fall within a three-hour commuting radius of Hong Kong, Tsang said, adding that HKSAR investors will have plenty of business opportunities in the region, rich in human and land resources.

The bridge, with a total length of 29.6 km, will be the world’s longest cross-sea bridge. The authorities of the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong and Macau will share the cost with the MSAR taking up 12.5 percent of the total.

More delays?
The Standard
Friday, February 03, 2012

The much-delayed bridge being built to link Hong Kong with Macau and Zhuhai is facing yet another barrier.

Tenders for some sections of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge have come in too high, forcing the government to retender the work.

One of the sections up for retender is a three-kilometer stretch close to a new artificial island, a source said.

Extensive works on that stretch include constructing ground sections and tunnels.

Hong Kong's part of the massive bridge measures 12 kilometers and is estimated to cost around HK$16.2 billion.

Construction was initially set to begin early this year.

The source did not reveal how much the tenders were above original estimates, only that they "exceeded acceptable levels."

After reviewing the tender details, the government found there was room for adjustment.

The retender procedure could start as early as today and is expected to be completed by the end of next month.

Authorities will urge a number of contractors who have already submitted tenders to modify the content and submit new ones. If prices remain higher than estimates, the government may have to go back to the Legislative Council to ask for more funding.

Construction of the Hong Kong section was delayed for a year due to a judicial review brought by elderly Tung Chung resident Chu Yee-wah.

She filed the review last January, citing insufficient assessments of the environmental impact.

"Based on the content of the tender documents, the adverse impact caused by the judicial review is more obvious," the source said.

"The clock is ticking and we cannot delay construction.

"But with the delay caused by the court case, contractors have added the possible increased costs of labor, working hours and machines to their final tender prices."

Construction of the Macau and Zhuhai sections of the main bridge ports started in late 2009.

That forced Hong Kong authorities to boost manpower, working hours and machinery as well as construction points in an effort to ensure the bridge opens as planned by 2016.

But that attempt to catch up has already sent the cost of the Hong Kong section soaring drastically by HK$6.5 billion to HK$48.5 billion.

Qingdao's marine projects win national awards
2012-02-22
China Daily

Qingdao was involved in 14 science and technology awards at a high-profile annual ceremony held in Beijing, to honor excellent scientists and research achievements on Feb 14. Qingdao brought home more awards than any other city in Shandong province.

Qingdao's marine projects stood out in all 14 awards. The project for key technologies and applications for the testing of oceanographic instruments and working foundation platforms was awarded the second-grade National Prize for Progress in Science and Technology. The project was led by Dr. Wu Dexing, president of the Ocean University of China (OUC).

The Qingdao-based OUC has won national science and technology awards for six consecutive years.

The world's longest cross-sea bridge, Jiaozhou Bay Bridge that opened last July, was on the list of the second-grade "National Technological Invention Award". This award is related to the technology of underwater concrete boxed cofferdam without bottoms. These not only saved 160 million yuan ($25.44 million) for the project, but also shortened the construction period.

Furthermore, the core part of this advanced technology has been applied in the world's largest "Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge" project, according to a local report.


Haier Group won the first prize for "Enterprise Technological Innovation Project", showing that enterprises in Qingdao have made great breakthroughs in research.

The team led by academician Xie Lixin, who created a new theory and technical application for the deadly infectious keratitis, was honored as another second-grade "National Prize for Progress in Science and Technology" for Qingdao city.

I saw a few man-made reclaimed islands between Hong Kong and Macau in the air last month. I suppose those are on the Macau side?

it still strikes me as odd that here they will build a 40+ km bridge for road instead of rail

in the above video the engineer seems quite evasive about the question
im sure they considered a rail-only link, but somehow they dismissed it
a channel tunnel like link would have been better imho

still awesome

Actually, it is mainly the need for the transportation of goods via container trucks, which makes the necessity for the HKZMB.

I have a query:

Will cars from Hong Kong need another licence plate to go to Macau or will they be let in with their Hong Kong licence plates, because if a car from Hong Kong wants to go to China, they must get chinese licence plates alongside Hong Kong ones.

Right now, cars entering Guangdong need a mainland license plate, and I don't think that will change any time soon. The Macau case is more interesting as it is not a common practice now and I'm not sure how that will work. I doubt Hong Kong plates can just enter Macau or vice versa though.

I doubt Hong Kongers would be interested in driving to Macau at all. Parking is a huge issue and the roads simply cannot accomodate so many tourists' vehicles. I envision a very frequent bus service from all parts of Hong Kong to a central drop-off point in Macau, or even their casino buses operating services into Hong Kong.

Since the bridge was primarily designed for goods traffic from the western delta, I believe the heavy users would be trucks coming from Zhuhai.

Why not? It is this way in europe and you don't even need passports to go to Macao.
