HEARING ON HK-ZHUHAI-MACAO BRIDGE TOLL TO BE HELD
    2017-12-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE toll for private cars crossing the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge has been set at 150 yuan (US$22.7), according to two draft plans released by Guangdong Development and Reform Commission recently for a hearing to be held Dec. 21 in Zhuhai.

The hearing will invite 24 representatives from the three cities to attend.

The two draft plans set a standard fare of 150 yuan for private cars and cabs using the bridge, 115 yuan for container trucks and 60 yuan for regular trucks. The charges differ for border-crossing buses and shuttle buses. Draft A denotes a 450-yuan charge for both types of buses, while Plan B sets the fare at 200 yuan for border-crossing buses and 450 yuan for shuttle buses.

The draft plans for the hearing have been reviewed by a work committee comprised of representatives from Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macao, and the final decision will be made by the Guangdong government after the hearing.

The result of an audit on the bridge shows the cost of building and maintaining the bridge will average 2.19 billion yuan a year if it is calculated on a 30-year fee collection period. The yearly vehicle flow will be 20.72 million and the average toll for each vehicle will be 106.14 yuan.

The bridge, expected to open by the end of this year, will cut the travel time between Hong Kong and Zhuhai from three hours to 30 minutes. It is expected to be economically beneficial to the three regions and of great significance for economic cooperation and development in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

The 55-km link includes a 29.6-km main bridge — a 6.7-km underwater tunnel and a 22.9-km bridge above the water’s surface, making it the longest cross-sea bridge in the world.

Construction of the Y-shaped bridge linking the western and eastern banks of the Pearl River started in 2009, as part of the country’s planned national highway network.

The service life of the bridge is expected to be more than 120 years.
