Shenzhen-Zhongshan Bridge

The Shenzhen-Zhongshan Bridge, or the National Expressway G2518, which is currently under construction, will connect two major cities in the Pearl River Delta region – Shenzhen on the east side of the Pearl River and Zhongshan on the west side. It will consist of a series of bridges and tunnels with a total length of 24 km.

The bridge, which will bring Zhongshan much closer to Shenzhen, can help to boost the two cities' cooperation and exchanges in the economy and other aspects, narrow the gap between Zhongshan and cities on the east side of the Pearl River, and promote the sound development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

Construction of the bridge started in December 2016 and is projected for completion in 2024. After its completion, the commuting time between Zhongshan and Shenzhen will be shortened from two hours to 30 minutes.
