Is that a highway crossing the water in the background? I saw it on Google Earth as stretching from Hong Kong to Guangzhou. What's its purpose and why did they built it over water for long stretches?

That would be the Highway S3 (Guangshen Coastal Expressway) to relief traffic from the original Guangshen Expressway.

well it is not Hong Kong yet... It is from Guangzhou to Shenzhen.
a really important reason is the area where it passes by is relatively well developed or constructed. as you can see it goes near by the shoreline, it will be on the land in the future because of the sea reclamation.

a little picture will help
it shows the route of the Shenzhen City part of the expressway in orange






also it has to leave enough space for a third runway for Shenzhen Airport which is yet to be built



the very bottom pinky line(s) is the Guangshen Coastal Expressway(S3)

I've read somewhere online about a proposed road that will link HKIA and Bao'an International via Shenzhen's newest area...

There was a proposal to link the two airports but nothing concrete has come out of it.

So that means, the project is under feasibility study?
