Construction of the 2.74 kilometre northern section of the Light Rapid Transit’s (LRT) East Line has started, with the whole line expected to be operational in 2028.

The Macau Daily Times reports that the section is being built by a consortium that includes China Civil Engineering and Nanguang Real Estate, as well as a unit of China Railway.

When complete, the East Line will connect the Taipa Ferry Terminal to the extremity of the Macao peninsula. The northern section links the Border Gate to Zone A of the Macau New Urban Zone – a reclamation project that will provide thousands of mostly public housing units.

The East Line will be one of the last parts of the LRT system to be completed.

A line connecting Barra and Taipa – via the Sai Van Bridge – is due to come into service at the end of this year or the beginning of 2024.

The 1.6-kilometre Seac Pai Van section should meanwhile be finished next February, with the 2.2-kilometre Hengqin line due to be completed next September.
