As far as I know,in some construction sites,workers are devided into 3 batches and each works for 8 hours a day(3x8=24).
In Shenzhen,here goes a famous slogan--Time is money,Efficiency is life.

OK probably there are some financial problems , but there might be some other problems that might prevent the project from moving at a faster pace than usual/normal speed. My idea is that we can make a a better judgment of the situation in the Spring / Summer period.

Is that definite though? I thought there were no plans so far?

I doubt they can manage to keep things significantly back to mainland style, ie visa requirements and stuff. Maybe by then, all places in China would be given a two week visa free entry like Malaysia? Who know? I think thats a good idea

The 50 years of 1 country, 2 systems rule (started on July 1 1997) is pretty much guaranteed. I don't see the PRC reneging on that deal. I'm sure Beijing is ruing for the day when they can finally have unfettered control over HK. Hopefully China's political climate will be more enlightened in 2047. But we're getting OT.

Now, regarding the expansion of Shenzhen:
China cannot abolish the Hong Kong SAR and merge it into Guangdong Province or Shenzhen Prefecture, because that would mean reneging on the deal binding till 2047. Extending the separate system and special administrative region of Hong Kong to Shenzhen might be not against the deal, but I am not sure China wants to do it any time soon.

A big deal some time in 2010 was that the Special Economic Zone of Shenzhen was expanded from being just one quarter of Shenzhen to the whole Shenzhen. How has this affected Shenzhen?

Very disappointing to see. Hopefully it's temporary.

No activity at all! I went there yesterday around 8:00pm and all the doors of the construction sites (both of them) were closed, no trucks, no workers.
Anybody has some information?

Let us just hope this inactiveness is due to the upcoming Chinese New Year. But if that is true, then there will probably be very little activity until the middle of February.

that was my first thought too. its such a big construction and i do not think they would just stop it for different reasons. maybe build slowly, but wouldn't just stop it unless a financer turned the back on them or something

I'm guessing one half of the financer is backing out.

Ping'an is one of China's largest insurance and banking companies. They alone have enough money to build this. I think the break in action is due to New Year's and that they bottomed out the basement a few weeks ago. Now they have to retool to start building up.
