New HK-SZ crossing to open in September

The Liantang Boundary Crossing between the eastern sides of Hong Kong and Shenzhen will be ready for opening in September. Located roughly halfway between the Lowu and Shau Tau Kok control points, the new facility will combine the functions of border control, customs, inspection and quarantine all in one.

The HK$33.7 billion project will be the seventh land-based control point on the Shenzhen-Hong Kong boundary, and will have direct access facilities for both passengers and vehicles. There will be a Public Transport Interchange, pick up/drop off areas for private cars and a public car park with 415 parking spaces inside the Passenger Terminal Building.

The new facility is designed to handle 17,850 vehicle trips and 30,000 passenger trips daily, and will help redistribute traffic amongst the overburdened land-based control points in the east.
