The bridge will enable commuters to move around the region easily by cutting journey time from three hours to 30 minutes between the two cities. "But this bridge is very visible ... you can see it from the plane when you fly in to Hong Kong, and it's breathtaking", lawmaker Claudia Mo told CNN earlier in the year.

The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge was built to withstand magnitude 8 earthquakes, a super typhoon and strikes by super-sized cargo vessels.

For China, it is a plan to develop its Greater Bay Area in terms of technological innovation and economic success. "It is about making Hong Kong an integral part of what is supposed to be a new dynamic economic and innovative engine of China".

However, the sprawling structure is now complete and is expected to be opened by Chinese President Xi Jinping on October 23. "There's a clear symbolic value of being the world's longest bridge re [garding] nationalism and state-building".

The world's longest sea bridge that will connect Hong Kong, Macau and the Chinese mainland will open to traffic on Wednesday.

But the reasons behind the investment may not be purely economic, as the bridge will bring Hong Kong, which has a separate system of governance, closer into Beijing's sphere of influence.

Supporters of the bridge promote it as an engineering marvel, while others see it as a costly political project created to further integrate Hong Kong into the mainland at a time when Beijing is tightening its grip on the semi-autonomous city. Guo went on to suggest that Wang Zhimin (王志民), China's top liaison officer to Hong Kong might also be in danger.
