Project Background

To connect the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF) with the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), roads including an elevated bridge structure (hereinafter referred to as “the HKBCF Viaduct/Roads”) were proposed as part of the HKBCF project, as described in Section 4.5 of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report of the HKBCF project. The HKBCF Viaduct/Roads is a Designated Project (DP) based on the requirements set out in the Environmental Impact Assessment Ordinance (EIAO) (Cap. 499), i.e., a road bridge more than 100m in length between abutments. The EIA for the HKBCF project covering the HKBCF Viaduct/Roads was completed and approved (refer to EIA Report Register No.: AEIAR-145/2009) on 23 October 2009 and an Environmental Permit (EP) was granted under the EIAO to the Highways Department (HyD).


With the planned expansion of the HKIA, a revised layout of the HKBCF Viaduct/Roads (the revised layout is hereinafter referred to as the proposed “HKIA-HKBCF Road Connection”) was formulated as part of the HKIA Terminal 2 Expansion. The proposed HKIA-HKBCF Road Connection would be constructed by the Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK). Upon completion of the construction works, the new HKIA-HKBCF Road Connection outside the Airport Island would be handed over to HyD for future operation and maintenance.


A Further EP (EP No. FEP-01/353/2009/K) for the construction of the HKIA-HKBCF Road Connection was granted to AAHK in December 2018 in accordance with the EIAO based on the approved EIA report for the HKBCF project. Under the requirements of the FEP, the AAHK is required to set up a dedicated website for placing the project information. This website contains the Project Background, EIAO Documents, EP Submissions and EM&A Reports.
