The Tsing Ma Suspension Bridge opened in May 1997 and links Tsing Yi to Ma Wan. It is the longest suspension bridge carrying road and rail traffic in the world. Vehicles use the top deck of the bridge while trains use the lower deck.

The main span of the bridge measures 1,377 metres. The bridge was built, in conjunction with a smaller Bridge, the Tin Kau bridge in order to accommodate the new airport which was opened in 1998 on Lantau Island. The bridge took 5 years to complete.
