It officially commenced construction on March 18, 2021. The project consists of elevated bridges, underwater tunnels, and two stations. It starts at the "HE1 Station" next to the Lianhua Bridge Station of Taipa Line, enters the cooperation zone through an underwater tunnel, and terminates at the "HE2 Station" at Hengqin Port. The total length is about 2.2 kilometers, with the tunnel section approximately 900 meters long.
