Stage 1 Community Engagement for Topside Development at Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities Island of Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge

   The Planning Department and the Civil Engineering and Development Department today (July 6) launched the Stage 1 Community Engagement for the Topside Development at Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF) Island of Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to gauge the public’s views on the initial development concept and the possible land uses for the HKBCF Island. Members of the public are welcome to participate.

   With its proximity to the Hong Kong International Airport, the HKBCF Island will serve as a gateway for Hong Kong and the western Pearl River Delta and hence has potential for developing a 'bridgehead economy’. The Government is conducting a study to ascertain the feasibility of carrying out the proposed commercial development and other economic activities at the topside and underground space of the HKBCF Island, and to optimise their scope and scale.

   The Stage 1 Community Engagement will last for two months. Activities include a public forum, briefings and a roving exhibition. Details of the activities and engagement documents are available at the website www.hzmbbcf-topside.hk. Members of the public are welcome to send in their comments on or before September 7 through the following channels:
