Connection of viaduct completes under Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai Boundary Control Point project
The linking up of the main viaduct running from Sha Tau Kok Road to Lin Ma Hang Road under the Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai Boundary Control Point (BCP) project officially completed today (March 14), which means that Sha Tau Kok Road is now fully connected to the new BCP via the trunk part of this new connecting road.
The Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai BCP is the first land-based BCP in Hong Kong with direct access facilities for both passengers and vehicles and will serve as a cross-border link to the east of Shenzhen, providing efficient cross-border access to and from the eastern part of Shenzhen, Huizhou, eastern parts of Guangdong and neighbouring provinces. The new BCP could also further strengthen Hong Kong's position in the development of the Pearl River Delta region and at the same time alleviate the heavy usage of the existing BCPs. In addition, the newly built connecting road could improve the road network in various areas of North District including Sha Tau Kok and Ta Kwu Ling
Attending the linking-up ceremony of the viaduct, the Director of Civil Engineering and Development, Mr Lam Sai-hung, said that despite the massive scale of the BCP project, the entire works team demonstrated full co-operation and spared no effort in achieving satisfactory works progress under this BCP project. Mr Lam pointed out that upon completion of the main structure, other works such as road paving and installation of barriers and road facilities will be carried out in phases. The Government will strive to meet the target of completing the BCP by the end of this year.
