Strategic Studies beyond 2030
150. The Government will take forward strategic studies on
railways and major roads beyond 2030 based on “Hong Kong
2030+: Towards a Planning Vision and Strategy Transcending
2030”, so that the planning of major transport infrastructure can
support the long-term land use strategy of Hong Kong.
151. Connecting with the national high-speed rail network, the
Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong
Express Rail Link will greatly shorten the travelling time
between Hong Kong and major cities in the Mainland, and
consolidate Hong Kong’s position as a regional transport hub.
The project will generate enormous economic and social benefits.
We will continue to oversee the works and take forward various
preparations with a view to accomplishing the targeted
commissioning of service in the third quarter of next year.
