New area of Macao’s port zone at Hengqin Port opens

Starting from midnight on April 1, 2024, the reserved area for the extension to Macao's Light Rapid Transit (LRT) system at Hengqin Port officially started operations and is now being used in accordance with the laws of the Macao SAR.

A handover ceremony was held simultaneously at the Smart Port Public Service Platform of the Guangdong-Macao In-Depth Cooperation Zone in Hengqin. The Guangdong side handed over the symbols of the LRT Hengqin Line Extension Project (the model of the shield machine Aoqin No.1 of the line) to the Macao side.

The civil and train system works of the extension line of the LRT have basically been completed, and the commissioning of equipment is currently underway. The Macao side has been conducting joint commissioning tests of electromechanical equipment and the train system since January 2024.

After being handed over, the reserved space for the LRT extension line will not only facilitate the construction and management of the entire project but also promote joint commissioning tests of the electromechanical equipment and train system of the entire project. This comprehensive approach aims to pave the way for the LRT to open within the year and facilitate the travel of citizens and tourists.

The handover of Macao's port zone at Hengqin port and extended areas to the Macao SAR has taken place in three phases. The first phase includes the handover of the travel inspection building of Macao's port zone at Hengqin port and its associated extension areas as well as Lotus Bridge, which was completed on March 18, 2020. In the second phase, the passenger and cargo inspection area Macao's port zone at Hengqin port and the area connecting the University of Macau to Hengqin Port was handed over to Macao respectively on April 20, 2023, and August 1, 2023.
