Both the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HK Government) and Shenzhen Municipal People's Government (SZ Government) have long recognized the need to enhance cross-boundary transport infrastructures for long-term economic growth and further regional co-operation. In September 2008, the two Governments decided to implement the new BCP, which is expected to be operational in 2018.


The new BCP will serve cross-boundary goods vehicles and passengers traveling between HK and SZ East, Huizhou, GD East, Jiangxi and Fujian. Goods vehicles delivering fresh produce, livestock and poultry would continue to use MKT BCP. 


It is estimated that in 2030, the new BCP will have about 20,600 vehicular trips and 30,700 passenger trips per day.


Design of New BCP

•  Customs, immigration and quarantine facilities of HK and SZ will be   located within their respective territory.
•  An integrated passenger hall building over the SZ River will provide the   greatest convenience for travelers.
•  A two-storey design is adopted to minimize land requirement.
•  Facilities for goods vehicles and public transport interchange are on the   ground floor (about 18.3 hectares on HK side). The upper floor, which is   about one-fourth of the size of the ground level (about 4.6 hectares on   HK side), will serve passengers, private cars and coaches.
