Construction of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge will begin the end of December, the Xinhua News Agency reported Wednesday.

The project, which is a series of bridges, tunnels and roads that will rival the longest bridges in the world, is designed to more closely connect Hong Kong with Macao and the Mainland.

"The State Council has announced the approval of the 'research report of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge'. The project is under busy preparation and will start at the year end, and is slated to be finished in 2015," Cai Qiwen, a vice director of the transportation department of Guangdong province, was quoted as saying.
