Shenzhen link approved

The fate of the US-3bn northern section of Route 10 is still uncertain even after lawmakers on the public works subcommittee voted by a narrow six to four margin in favour of the project.

Hong Kong backed plans for three highway projects worth US-4.3bn, including the 5.9km Shenzhen bridge linking the western New Territories with mainland China. The 5.9km combined causeway and cable stayed structure will connect with the US-900M, 5.4km Deep Bay link where the bridge makes landfall at Ngau Hom Shek.

But the schemes still faced a rocky ride through Hong Kong Legislative Council’s finance committee meeting on 8 March, with US-34M of detailed design and construction fees hinging on the outcome.
