The road to China just got shorter, if you were in Hong Kong or Macau, that is.

The 14-mile Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge that took nine years to build, crosses the Pearl River Delta linking the mainland Chinese city of Zhuhai with the semiautonomous financial cener of Hong Kong and the former Portuguese colony and gambling hub of Macau.

Most travelers will cross on shuttle bus lines as private cars will have limited access to The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge and will be required to apply for special permits. Since cars are driven on the right side of the road in mainland China and the left side in Hong Kong and Macau, the bridge includes points where drivers change sides. The inauguration of the bridge comes one month after the recent opening of a high-speed-rail station in Hong Kong.
