NDRC rejects early opening for Zhuhai-Macau link

Mainland authorities say a planned bridge between Macau and Zhuhai will not be opened to the public, until the link to Hong Kong is also complete.

The National Development and Reform Commission said the work on the link from here is behind schedule and the Macau to Zhuhai stretch is now expected to finish first.

But during a press conference in Beijing, the deputy director of the commission, Hu Zucai, brushed aside suggestions that the Zhuhai-Macau stretch of the bridge could be be opened first.

He said the bridge will be opened to the public only when the entire project is completed.

The bridge was originally scheduled to be completed by the end of this year, but it is now going to be late by at least a year.
