Chinese President Xi Jinping on Sunday sent a congratulatory letter as a cross-sea passage opened, linking the cities of Shenzhen and Zhongshan in southern China’s Guangdong Province.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, said the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Link is another large-scale transportation project in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area following the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. The project managed to overcome multiple world-class technical challenges and set multiple world records.

All participants, through their hard work and unwavering determination, have successfully completed the project with high quality, Xi said.

“This fully illustrates that Chinese modernization can only be achieved through solid work, as all great causes are accomplished through concrete actions,” he said.

The mega passage is another large-scale transportation project in the Great Bay Area, following the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, which is located at about 31 km south of the new link. It will serve as one of the major transportation links crossing the Pearl River estuary, improving the freeway network in the region.

With its inauguration, the new passage is expected to enhance the quality of life for millions in the Greater Bay Area and beyond, while also propelling the progress of the Greater Bay Area as a whole.

The highly-anticipated cross-sea passage linking the cities of Shenzhen and Zhongshan in southern China’s Guangdong province commenced trial operations at 3 pm on Sunday.

This 24-kilometer passage, connecting Shenzhen in the east of the Pearl River estuary with Zhongshan in the west, has significantly slashed travel time between the two cities from about two hours to under 30 minutes.
