Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge seeks to be world-class tourist attraction

Published on : Friday, April 26, 2019

The plans are underway to make Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge as a world class tourist’s attraction site. It is an attempt to address complaints about the US$15.3 billion project.

 

 

The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Authority has invited some of the entertainment companies to bid for the overall planning and conceptual design of a tourism development and supporting facilities on the eastern artificial island of the bridge close to Hong Kong’s Lantau Island, according to the notice posted on its website.

 

 

The operator is stepping up its effort to address complaints over insufficient traffic that could affect the bridge’s commercial viability as well as increased tensions between visitors and Hong Kong residents due to congestion close to the Hong Kong checkpoint.

 

 

The Chinese tourists have shown great enthusiasm for the colossal structure as a symbol of China’s engineering prowess and have flocked in large numbers, although this had led to the tensions with local residents of Tung Chung on Lantau Island in Hong Kong who has complained about being inundated by mainland Chinese visitors.

 

 

The new plan, for which bidders have until April 30 to complete the application procedure and summit documentation ahead of a field trip and a bidding briefing on May 10, would mean Chinese tourists would not need to enter the city itself.
