When it opens in 2006, the new boundary crossing will accommodate 31,000 vehicles daily, becoming a key artery to the Mainland.
The 5.5km-long Western Corridor will be the fourth vehicular boundary crossing between Hong Kong and the Mainland. It starts at the newly reclaimed area for the boundary crossing facilities at Dongjiaotou, Shekou.
Apart from providing a more convenient cross-boundary transport link to boost economic development, particularly in areas of finance, logistics and tourism, the Western Corridor will strengthen Hong Kong's position as the hub of the Pearl River Delta area and enhance trade between the city and South China.
Travelling by car/bus to HK Disneyland would be easier for Mainland Tourists.
