The Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge is an ongoing construction project which consists of a series of bridges and tunnels crossing the Lingdingyang channel that will connect Hong Kong, Macau and Zhuhai, three major cities on the Pearl River Delta in China. The 50 kilometres (31 miles) link is expected to cost US$10.6 billion (HK$83 billion). With its length, it would become one of the landmarks within the area. The longest bridge section will be 29.6 kilometres (18.4 mi) long and will include three cable-stayed spans between 280 and 460 metres (920 and 1,510 ft).

Construction formally began on 15 December 2009. The last bridge tower was erected on 2 June 2016.The last straighted-element of the 4860 meter long immersed tunnel was installed on 12 July 2016.Originally set to be opened to traffic on 15 October 2016 the project is at least a year late and now is due to open in December 2017.
