In September 2008, HKSARG and SMPG jointly announced the implementation of a new BCP at Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai in the north-eastern New Territories of Hong Kong and Luohu in Shenzhen to serve the cross-boundary goods vehicles and passengers travelling between Hong Kong (HK) and Shenzhen (SZ) East. The new BCP will connect with the Shenzhen Eastern Corridor and provide an efficient access across the boundary to the SZ East, Huizhou, various cities in Guangdong East, and the adjacent provinces such as Fujian and Jiangxi.

The Project aims to:

  • reduce travelling time between HK and SZ East, facilitate future development in these areas and extend the economic hinterland of HK and SZ;
  • re-distribute the cross-boundary traffic from SZ to New Territories East, resulting in enhancement of the overall operational efficiency, handling capacity and quality of service for the BCPs in HK and SZ; and
  • satisfy the urban layout design requirement in SZ East, in order to fulfill the SMPG's “East-in-east-out” traffic planning principle for the cross-boundary traffic.

The Jury will select a total of ten finalist entries for each Group in the first round of adjudication. The finalist entries will be exhibited in HK and SZ and uploaded to the competition website for collecting public opinion. The Jury will consider the public opinion when selecting the awarded entries in the second round of adjudication. The results of the competition will be publicly announced through the media and the competition website in August 2011.
