Hong Kong and the Mainland are closely connected. With well-developed cross-boundary transportation networks and cross-boundary facilities, there are frequent contacts between the two places and cross-boundary passenger traffic has been on the rise in recent years. In 2018, over 235 million passenger trips crossed the border via land crossings, which include Lo Wu, Lok Ma Chau Spur Line, Hung Hom, Shenzhen Bay Port, Lok Ma Chau (Huanggang), Sha Tau Kok, Man Kam To, West Kowloon Station and Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) Hong Kong Port, with a daily average of over 640 000 passenger trips. The commissioning of the Hong Kong Section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link (XRL), the HZMB and Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai Boundary Control Point (LT/HYW BCP), together with transport infrastructure connecting both sides of the Pearl River, such as the Second Humen Bridge and Shenzhen-Zhongshan Bridge, will further improve transport connectivity within the Greater Bay Area and create favourable conditions for attracting Mainland and overseas talents to the Greater Bay Area. Furthermore, the HZMB, the Hong Kong Section of the XRL, as well as the soon-to-be-commissioned LT/HYW BCP will further enhance the capacity of Hong Kong boundary crossing facilities in meeting the ever increasing cross-boundary passenger traffic.
