Bridge to Zhuhai and Macau / School bullying 00:59:00 2017-11-23
On Thursday's Backchat we're talking about the estimated cost overrun of nearly $12 billion for construction of the bridge to Zhuhai and Macau. It's thought that local taxpayers may have to meet about half of that amount, under a funding agreement between Hong Kong, the mainland and Macau. The Transport and Housing Bureau says rising costs of labour and material, as well as design changes, have caused the project to go over budget, and it'll be seeking Legco approval for the extra money required. But legislators are calling for a detailed explanation, and have warned officials be prepared for "lots of questions" when the matter comes before the council. What do you make of this? Leave us a message, or email us at, or call us on 23388266. After 9.20, school bullying.
