The Lantau Link was offically opened on April 27,1997, and it opened to traffic on May 22.

Lantau Link is the vital connection in the transport network serving the new airport, comprising the Tsing Ma Bridge, the Kap Shui Mun Bridge and the Ma Wan Viaduct.

The double-deck crossing, 3.5 kilometres long, provides the first road link between Lantau Island and the rest of Hong Kong.

The two bridges and the viaduct have six lanes for road traffic on the open upper deck and two railway tracks together with two road lanes for emergency use on the sheltered lower deck.

One-way toll collection is adopted. Drivers have to pay double of the toll specified when leaving Lantau but nothing on entering.

The toll schedule for the Lantau Link is as follows :
