Building stronger bonds with the Pearl River DeltaThe bridge will facilitate logistics flow and raise Hong Kong's competitiveness
At present, the main way of going from Hong Kong to Macao and Zhuhai is by sea. The high speed ferry trip takes approximately an hour. According to Gordon Wu's proposal, the bridge will possibly shorten travelling time by 30 minutes.
Hopes are that the proposed bridge will boost the flow of people and
goods in the delta region and benefit the
tourism and logistics
industries of Hong Kong. It will also enhance the integration of Hong
Kong's economy with the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region.
