Long traffic jams meet tourists trying out new SZ-Zhongshan Link

As of 3:00 PM on July 1st, the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor has seen a traffic volume of 125,000 vehicles within 24 hours of opening, maintaining a high level of operation.

On June 30th at 3:00 PM, the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor began its trial operation, with an enthusiastic response from the public. On the first day, there was a significant flow of traffic in both the eastbound and westbound directions, and the entire line experienced a long-distance traffic congestion at times. At 5:00 PM on June 30th, the traffic reached its peak, with more than 8,000 vehicles passing through in just one hour.

As of the time of writing, the traffic volume on the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor remains relatively high. It is expected that as people become more familiar and accustomed to the route of the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor, the traffic flow will gradually return to normal levels.

On the first day of opening, Shenzhen and Zhongshan invested a large number of traffic police forces to maintain order, and the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor Management Center's road administration, maintenance, rescue, and road network dispatch center staff were on duty 24 hours with over 200 people and 50 specialized vehicles to ensure the safety and smooth flow of the entire line.

At the same time, the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor is equipped with more than 700 monitoring cameras and various perception terminals, which can provide real-time road conditions to the information dispatch center's monitoring platform.

Personnel teams for fire and road administration standby points on the east and west artificial islands have been stationed, and all rescue equipment such as fire trucks and rescue vehicles are ready for action.

Observations indicate that aside from the large volume of traffic, a significant cause of congestion on the first day was some drivers and passengers not following traffic rules, ignoring radio advice, stopping on the bridge for sightseeing, or driving slowly to take videos.

Guangdong Transportation Group reminds everyone that the entire 24-kilometer Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor is a highway, and there are no emergency lanes in the undersea tunnel section. Please do not stop or get off your vehicle to take photos on the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor. Parking and illegal use of emergency lanes are not allowed except in emergencies.
