Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities
The HKBCF will serve as a transportation hub and provide clearance facilities for goods and passengers respectively using the HZMB.
The proposed HKBCF will be located on an artificial island of about 150 hectares (including about 130 hectares for HKBCF and about 20 hectares for Tuen Mun – Chek Lap Kok Link (TM-CLKL) southern landfall) reclaimed from the open waters off the northeast of the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA). Geographically, the HKBCF will be at a convenient location with good transportation connectivity as it is next to the HKIA and near Tung Chung new town. With a variety of transport means including HKIA, SkyPier, Airport Express Line and Tung Chung Line available in the proximity, the HKBCF will become a transportation hub in the area. The synergy effect will be considerable and helps benefit Hong Kong's overall economic development.
Target to achieve readiness for commissioning by end 2017.
