ZHUHAI Port Holdings Group is embarking on the third phase of an upgrading project that will involve the construction of two post-Panamax containership berths on China's Gaolan island - the location of its main port that serves the trade in containerised shipments, oil and gas products, ore and coal. The berths will have a combined length of 858.5 metres and annual handling capacity of 1.6 million TEU, reported Dredging and Port Construction. The state-owned group said the works will cost US$378.5 million and take 30 months to complete, but it did not state when the project will commence. The second phase of the upgrading project is due to be completed this year and will add 1.8 million TEU to Zhuhai's annual container handling capacity, after adding one berth for post-Panamax containerships, two berths for Panamax containerships, one berth for Handymax bulk carriers, two berths for Handysize bulk carriers, and one berth for general cargo vessels of up to 10,000 deadweight tonnes (dwt). Zhuhai handled 2.3 million TEU in 2018, up from 655,000 TEU in 2008, equivalent to an annual growth rate of 13.4 per cent. Zhuhai Port Holdings Group anticipates that container throughput could reach five million TEU in 2025 and eight million TEU in 2030.

HK-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge is gearing up for much-delayed official opening

PostTime:2018-01-08 09:13:14 View:198

THE Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge will open once tests have been completed and the arrangements of customs and health inspections have been finalised. But the structure is ready and its official opening is not far away. With a total length of 55 kilometres the mega bridge is the longest and most technically advanced in China. It is also the most expensive, estimated at US$17 billion, reported Hong Kong Economic Journal. For the 6.7 kilometre underwater tunnel section, builders laid 33 sections of tunnel on the bed of the Pearl River, each weighing as much as an aircraft carrier. During a public hearing in Zhuhai on December 21 organised by the Guangdong Development and Reform Commission (GDRC) officials said that they expect annual traffic flow of 21 million vehicle/journeys and annual income of CNY2.2 billion (US$338.29 million) over the first 30 years. They did not say when or if they would recover the investment cost. Others at the hearing said that official projections of 65,000 vehicles a day using the bridge were too optimistic, given that there would be in future five bridges and tunnels that cross the Pearl River. GDRC put forward two pricing plans. In both, private vehicles and taxis would pay CNY150 to cross the bridge, cargo trucks CNY115 and ordinary trucks CNY60. Coaches would pay CNY200 in one plan and CNY450 in the other. Who will use the new bridge? On December 12 the HK Transport Department announced that it had agreed with the Guangdong government to increase the quota for HK cross-border private cars using the bridge from the 3,000 announced on August 25 to 10,000. There is also a quota of 300 private cars in the mainland. Currently, 28,000 vehicles in Hong Kong and 3,000 in Guangdong have cross-border licences. They can also use the bridge. Chief research officer at the Hong Kong-based One Country Two Systems Research Institute Fang Zhou said that delays in the construction of the bridge had given cities in the PRD time to greatly develop their port capacity, resulting in a situation where many exporters in the delta no longer need to use Hong Kong. "Other PRD bridges will offer lower tariffs than the new bridge, while existing cargo barges to Hong Kong are even cheaper," he said. "In terms of time and convenience, the bridge is not so competitive." The strongest economic argument for the bridge is traffic to Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA). In 2016, it handled 4.52 million tons of air cargo. Of this cargo, high value items that must be shipped quickly account for 10 per cent by volume but 40 per cent by value. The main items are fresh food, flowers, fashion, electronic goods and pharmaceuticals. The bridge will enable producers west of the Pearl River to move their goods to HKIA more quickly.

New Zhuhai-Macau border checkpoint gets approval

PostTime:2014-03-17 08:40:42 View:1114

CHINA'S state government has approved the building of a new customs checkpoint on the Zhuhai-Macau border, enabling "one-stop customs clearance" by 2016. By 2015, traveler flow at Zhuhai's border checkpoints is expected to rise to 130 million people. Daily cross-boundary travellers will hit 356,000 people, according to Xinhua's report. In order to ease heavy pressure on Zhuhai's existing border checkpoints, China State Council decided to approve the setup of a new checkpoint where customs of Zhuhai and Macau will work together for the first time to simplify customs clearance procedures by offering just once inspection before clearance. The checkpoint building and the closed border-crossing corridor will start construction in the second half of 2015. At present, travellers between Zhuhai and Macau can only cross border at two checkpoints, Gongbei and Hengqin. Statistics from Zhuhai's border control authority show that the Gongbei checkpoint handled nearly 99 million people in the past year. Pressure on the border facilities is increasing as mainland Chinese tourists to Macau surge in recent years.

In November, the station loaded 83 trains, or 2.8 trains per day.
