Zhuhai to organize hearing for reclamation project
By Li Yang,  


Zhuhai city government will organize a public hearing on the Chimelong Fuxiang Island's reclamation project's marine environmental impact statement. The citizens, legal persons and organizations related to the project can apply to take part in the hearing.

The reclamation project, in the Dadongwan water area to the southeast of Hengqin Island, will form an artificial island covering an area of 350,000 square meters, which will be connected with the Hengqin Island by a newly constructed bridge. The project will take 24 months and will cost around 5 billion yuan (US$736 million).

According to the overall plan, an ocean-theater, aquarium, hotels and apartment buildings, as well as other infrastructure will be built on the Chimelong Fuxiang Island, which is expected to be able to accommodate 50 million tourist visits every year.
