“Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is the 'experimental field' of Dawan District of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao. It can provide reference for the construction of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Dawan District in terms of coordination, ecological protection and investment funding.” As the Director of Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Administration Assistant Gao Xinglin stated, to take fully effect of the bridge, not only to employ the engineering skills of bridges, but also to use the bridge as a mechanism for the joint construction and sharing of the three projects under the "one country, two systems" principle.
At the artificial island of Zhuhai-Macao Port of the bridge, a new inspection mode is currently running: “cooperative inspection, check once”, passengers only need to queue once, and the inspection procedures of the two places can be completed in 30 seconds. Some experts said that this model has completed a series of institutional innovations under the framework of "one country, two systems" and enriched the practice of "one country, two systems."
In fact, the Bridge Authority itself is also a major innovation. Its management organization structure adopts the model of "Bridge Special Task Force - Joint Work Committee of Three Places - Project Corporation (Bridge Administration)". Since the establishment of the Authority, the three parties have conducted equal demonstrations on more than 150 topics and proposed solutions that are accepted by all parties. “The bridge project is a 'test field' built in the Dawan District of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao. Its three-level governance structure and co-construction management mode provide a vivid case for the construction of the Dawan District, which can be used for the construction of the front floor of the Dawan District. Major decision-making work provides a paradigm and directly draws on experience," said Zhu Yongling, director of the Bridge Administration.
