Here's an interesting one:



Plans to build a Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge. It's going to be 42 kilometers, six lanes, and made up of bridges and tunnels.

Not to be outdone by neighboring Shenzhen, they might be building two!

I've been to Hong Kong many times but never to Macau yet due to my distaste for ferries. I guess when this bridge goes up I won't have any more excuses.

I still like the charm or taking the ferry. How long will the bridge be?

Apparently 45 minutes by bridge.

Ferries take about one hour, once the boat is underway.

They are just in the process of putting in light-rail throughout Macau.

I guess that's the first step
