Good news! Getting to and from Shenzhen Bay Port just got easier.

If you frequently use Shenzhen Bay Port to go between Hong Kong and Shenzhen, then you've likely experienced the congestion caused by all the cars trying to get into and out of the area.

Many people avoided walking out using the designated walkways as that trek to get to the nearest place for a vehicle to pick you up without entering the port area is over 1 km. One way some have been dealing with this is to cut out to Wanghai Road for pick up or drop off. It's a much shorter distance; however, doing so wasn't the safest choice as it not only required cutting through driveways at the port made for motor vehicles only, but also having to engage in a 'frogger' like game between speeding cars to cross Wanghai Road.

On the morning of July 24th, the Shenzhen Bay Port and Shenzhen Bay Park Pedestrian Footbridge officially opened. The 165.85 meter-long bridge made of reinforced steel now makes it fast and easy to get from the taxi pick-up area of Shenzhen Bay Port to the northbound side of Wanghai Road or to a new parking lot being built at East Shenzhen Bay Park.

The new parking lot, expected to officially open in August, will offer people another option to avoid traffic congestion when picking up and dropping off passengers, by not having to enter the Shenzhen Bay Port area.

When asked why there was no rain cover on the bridge, the construction company stated that because the flyover was a temporary project, and considering factors such as bearing capacity and typhoons, no awning was provided.

Construction continues in the area as crews are working on the Shenzhen Bay Port Station of Shenzhen Metro Line 13.
