  Project Overview  
The Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai Boundary Control Point (LT/HYW BCP) will be the seventh land crossing between Shenzhen and Hong Kong. It will bring significant benefits to Hong Kong.

Currently, the two existing BCPs on the eastern side of the New Territories at Man Kam To and Sha Tau Kok are mainly used to access eastern Shenzhen and Guangdong. All cross-boundary traffic travelling from these two existing BCPs has to travel through busy local roads in Hong Kong and Shenzhen before joining the highway systems. The LT/HYW BCP will connect with the expressway systems in Hong Kong and Shenzhen: the Shenzhen Eastern Corridor will connect the BCP with the Shenzhen-Huizhou and Shenzhen-Shantou Expressways while the Connecting Road in Hong Kong will connect the BCP with Fanling Highway. The new BCP will shorten the travelling time between Hong Kong and eastern Guangdong, southern Fujian and Jiangxi, thus greatly facilitating future regional cooperation and development. People and cargo flows across the boundary will become smoother and more efficient. The new BCP will play a strategic role in sustaining our long-term economic growth.

From the local perspective, the new BCP will help redistribute the cross-boundary vehicular traffic amongst the crossings in the east. This will alleviate the busy conditions at Man Kam To and Sha Tau Kok BCPs, and provide room for improvement at these BCPs so that the overall handling capacity and the quality of service of the BCPs in Hong Kong will be enhanced. Besides, there will be four interchanges along the Connecting Road at the junctions with Fanling Highway, Sha Tau Kok Road, Ping Yuen Road and Lin Ma Hang Road, which will facilitate the access of local residents. With the Connecting Road, the road network in the North District as a whole will be much improved.
  Project Scope  
  1. Site formation of about 23 ha of land for the BCP and construction of an approximately 11 km long dual-two lane trunk road connecting the BCP with Fanling Highway;
  2. Construction of BCP buildings and associated facilities;
  3. Improvement of a section of about 4.5 km long Shenzhen River between Ping Yuen River and Pak Fu Shan, and re-provisioning of the relevant boundary patrol roads; and
  4. Re-provisioning of Chuk Yuen Village.

Target Completion Date: end-2018
