The Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macao Bridge (HZMB) is the world’s longest sea crossing and the longest fixed link.
At a length of 55 kilometres, it consists of a series of three cable-stayed bridges, an undersea tunnel, and four artificial islands, as it spans the Lingding and Liuzhou channels. It links the cities of Hong Kong, Macau, and Zhuhai.
The link had been under discussion since the 1980s, but construction work did not start until December 2009, when then-Vice Premier of China Li Keying declared the start of work on the China side. Work on the Hong Kong side of the project began in December 2011.
After 9 years of work, the crossing opened to the public on 24 October 2018.
