The design life of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is 120 years. This is a century-old project.
The century-old project has never been confined to immediate interests, but has been laid out for a longer period of time. From the perspective of political accounts, the value of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is far from being measured by 110 billion yuan. In the respect of Hong Kong. Historically, Hong Kong has missed several opportunities for transformation and has become a city of real estate. The future of the city was kidnapped by real estate and became the first city in China to solidify. As the upward flow space shrinks, the younger generation attributed the root cause to external causes, and the heart and soul were resentful, and the centripetal force within the society swayed constantly. The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge can be used as a chess piece for the integration of the Pearl River Delta region, compressing time and space and commuting costs, giving full play to the advantages of Zhuhai’s housing prices, and diverting some Hong Kong residents who are living in a narrow environment to live a one-hour life circle of “Zhuhai Life, Hong Kong Work”. In this regard, Zhuhai is more cost-effective than Shenzhen. Not only that, China has been setting up a free trade zone in recent years, taking the lead in RECP. In fact, it is also moving toward zero tariffs and zero subsidies. With Hong Kong as a free trade port, it has gradually blurred the “two systems” boundary, Zhuhai and even Guang Shen is one of the bridgeheads, in order to attract more young Hong Kong generations to work directly in the Mainland and provide a broader room for growth. Living in the same community will help Hong Kong residents to feel the temperature of the big family of the country, help to eliminate psychological barriers and divides, and enhance the sense of identity between the compatriots of the two places. The connection of the bridge is the first step, which brings people’s hearts communication.
As a cross-border channel connecting Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge will play an important role in the construction of the Dawan District. The completion of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge has greatly shortened the time and space between Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macau. As a milestone in China’s transition from a big bridge country to a bridge powerhouse, the bridge has been hailed as the “Mount Everest” in the bridge industry. It is called “the Seven Wonders of the Modern World” by the British media “Guardian”; it not only represents the advanced level of China’s bridges, but also reflects the comprehensive national strength of China. The construction of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is a major measure by the Chinese central government to support the rapid development of cities in Hong Kong, Macao and the Pearl River Delta region. It is a major achievement of close cooperation between Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao under the “one country, two systems” principle.
