The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) and the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF) are a mega engineering project boasting a combined bridge and tunnel system at 29.6 km long.

As a new landmark in the region, this project will underscore Hong Kong as a vibrant global and metropolitan city and a gate way for the western part of Pearl River Delta, as well as encourage economic and sustainable development between the regions. AECOM was tasked with two critical components of this project: HZMB’s main crossing and two artificial islands, and the majority of the HKBCF.

The main crossing is a tunnel – at 5.664 km long, which is the longest immersed tube tunnel in the world. Construction of the main crossing is the most critical and difficult part of the project, performed over the open sea which presents a major engineering challenge.

Passenger Clearance Building (PCB) is another highlight of the HKBCF project. With the shape of the roof designed to mimick the waves in the surrounding sea, it will be the largest among all structures on the artificial island. The PCB’s roof is supported by massive tree-like columns with supporting beams, which give the arrival and departure halls a spacious feel; skylights filter natural light and minimize the need for artificial light; and specially prefabricated modules for the roof were adopted for this project to lower construction cost and risk.

On the 130ha reclaimed land, HKBCF also contains other associated infrastructure and auxiliary facilities, such as:

  • Cargo Clearance Facilities
  • Road Network
  • Transit Interchange
  • Traffic Control Surveillance System
  • Accommodations for frontline departments (Immigration, Customs and Excise, etc.)

Award and Recognition:

  • The Lighthouse Club Safety Leadership Awards 2016 – Gold (Architect-Consultant Category)

AECOM provided planning, investigation, detailed design, contract administration, site supervision and construction management for this project.
