Hengqin’s Urban Planning and Construction Bureau says feasibility studies are underway but a timeline for the introduction of services has not been set.
“A concrete technical demonstration is needed,” said Wong Van, vice director of the bureau. “We are carrying out the pre-phase technical argument stage to see if there is difficulty building a harbour at this point.”
The official told TDM that “pre-stage location selection tasks are not finished yet.”
The news comes after the announcement of a proposed ferry route between Macao and Guangzhou.
Such services would connect Macao and the provincial capital’s Haizhu district, near the China Import and Export Fair complex.
