A number of other ‘mega projects’ will further tie Guangdong and Macao, including a new cross-border passage that will bridge Macao with Zhuhai at the Guangdong side.
A 400-meter corridor over Yachong River will be open to travelers, who will be able to easily transfer between the Macao urban rail system and the Guangzhou-Zhuhai Intercity Mass Rapid Transit. The Yachong River dividing Macao and Zhuhai will be transformed into an ecological landscape corridor. Construction has already begun, and the project will be completed before 2020.
The new border crossing will have a self-service E-port operating 24-hour. Passengers only need to show their travel permit once for inspection.
Moreover, the Guangdong-Macao Cooperation Fund is soon to be put into action. It’s main focus is investment in infrastructure and major projects in Guangdong, and programs that are related to the Greater Bay Area, as well aiming to improve both economy and welfare on the two sides. 2 billion RMB has been poured in, and more is set to follow.
