New control point to open

August 21, 2020

The Government today announced that Heung Yuen Wai Boundary Control Point (BCP) will commence services on August 26, with cargo clearance facilities to open first for cross-boundary goods vehicles' use.


The arrangement was agreed by both Guangdong and Hong Kong in view of the development of the COVID-19 epidemic. At this stage, the new BCP will not be open for other cross-boundary vehicles under the regular quota as well as passenger clearance services to reduce people flow between the Mainland and Hong Kong.


Cargo clearance services will be provided between 7am and 10pm daily at the initial stage of the commissioning.


Heung Yuen Wai BCP, also called Liantang Port in Shenzhen, is the seventh land-based control point at the Hong Kong-Shenzhen boundary. It is connected to Heung Yuen Wai Highway in Hong Kong and the Shenzhen Eastern Corridor.


The Government said cross-boundary goods vehicles currently going to the eastern part of Shenzhen and east Guangdong generally travel through busy roads in Hong Kong and Shenzhen via the existing BCPs at Lok Ma Chau, Man Kam To and Sha Tau Kok.


The commissioning of the Heung Yuen Wai BCP will shorten the travelling time between Hong Kong, the eastern part of Shenzhen and east Guangdong and relieve the existing cross-boundary freight traffic, which will facilitate the smooth and efficient operation of cross-boundary logistics.


Meanwhile, specimen-taking services for nucleic acid tests will be provided to cross-boundary goods vehicle drivers within the Liantang Port area in Shenzhen.
