Sands China provides additional transportation service for construction workers


Sands China Ltd announced it will be providing an additional, complimentary transportation service for its non-resident construction workers living in mainland China.

Beginning May 11 the company is dispatching an extra fleet of shuttle buses to transport the workers to and from Gongbei in Zhuhai and the company’s construction sites in Cotai via the Lotus Bridge.

The company said it has been shuttling the workers from Gongbei Border Gate to construction sites in Cotai – with a total of 90 trips offered daily – as part of its social responsibility efforts.

“In support of the latest government guidelines, Sands China is providing the additional Lotus Bridge route for its non-resident construction workers beginning May 11. On a daily basis, the complimentary shuttles will pick up the workers at Zhuhai Railway Station during peak hours and drop them off at construction sites in Cotai via the Lotus Bridge.”

Sands’ announcement follows a series of fatal accidents involving construction workers, which has prompted Macau officials to begin drafting new building safety rules to prevent future accidents amid the gaming hub’s construction boom.
