Hong Kong Approves Government Spending for City Crossing

Hong Kong lawmakers have approved for the government to spend HK$17.5 billion to construct the city’s 7th crossing to Shenzhen. They discussed the idea for three weeks before coming to their current conclusion. This money will be put with the already approved HK$16.25 billion that was approved in July 2012.
