January 31, 2019


Abstract : The government of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) is striving to complete the construction of the boundary control point at Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai connecting Hong Kong and Shenzhen this year.

HONG KONG, Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- The government of China's Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) is striving to complete the construction of the boundary control point at Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai connecting Hong Kong and Shenzhen this year, Secretary for Development of HKSAR government Michael Wong said on Wednesday.

The commissioning schedule for the new control point will be confirmed through ongoing coordination between the governments of HKSAR and Shenzhen, said Wong.

According to Wong, the construction of the connecting road was about 97 percent complete, while the control point buildings were about 85 percent complete.

Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai will be the seventh land-based control point on the Shenzhen-Hong Kong boundary. The HKSAR government forecast that at the early stage after commissioning, daily passenger flow through the control point would be about 17,500 and vehicular flow 7,700.

People could take public transport, private cars or walk through the pedestrian subway to reach the control point.
