The authority from Hong Kong announced that joint clearance of both the SAR and the Mainland would be performed in West Kowloon Station for the Hong Kong Section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link (XRL).
Hong Kong’s Secretary for Justice Rimsky Yuen said during the press conference held on Tuesday that the joint clearance by two regions must be approved by the National People’s Congress Standing Committee before legislation could be formulated and implemented in Hong Kong.
The Secretary said related authorities from both regions will ensure the joint clearance to comply with the Basic Law and ‘one country, two systems’.
The XRL, together with other projects such as the upcoming Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge, are instruments under the central government’s plan to link the Pearl River Delta into a ‘Bay Area’.
The Secretary for Transport and Housing in Hong Kong, Frank Chan noted that the XRL project would ‘bring social and economic benefits, boost connectivity with the Mainland and create employment’.
