This is the Chinese title of a timely piece of research (13 November, 2013) of the Hong Kong-based Bauhinia Foundation Research Centre on the implications of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge upon its completion in 2016.
The full text here is in Chinese only. The following are brief highlights of its more salient findings –
(a) The Bridge would shorten vehicular travelling time between Hong Kong and Zhuhai by 60-80%. It would take only 45 minutes from Zhuhai to the Hong Kong International Airport.
(b) Linked to the Bridge is a vast and super-efficient regional logistical transportation network, covering the entire “Pan-Pearl River Economic Region”, a globalized trade and logistical platform consisting of the two Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions, and nine huge provinces of Guangdong, Guangxi, Fujian, Jiangxi, Hunan, Hainan, Sichuan, Guizhou and Yunnan (9 + 2), linked by over 30, 629 km of expressways.
(c) Southern China is poised to connect with the Yangtze River Delta and Bohai Economic Rim in the north to enhance China’s coastal economic dynamos.
(d) How would Hong Kong’s special political, legal, economic, social, cultural, and institutional fabric fit into this gigantic regional integration is becoming a challenge. There is also increasing competitive rivalry between neighbouring container ports, transport corridors, and logistical hubs with Zhuhai and Macao. The impact on air quality, traffic, and prices in the Bridge’s gateway localities like Tung Chung and North-West New Territories remain to be assessed.
