Before October 2018, there were no direct roads linking Macao and Zhuhai with Hong Kong. The Humen Pearl River Bridge, a suspension bridge completed in 1997, was the only way to travel by car between these cities, making for a 200km journey that took at least four hours.
The alternative was travelling by ferry to Zhuhai or Macao. The ferry from Hong Kong to Macao and back took around one hour — excluding time spent getting to and from the ferry terminal and going through immigration.
When it opened, the HZMB changed all that: it gave vehicles travelling from Hong Kong a way of reaching Macao in under an hour.
