Green light for Cotai footbridge
More than three years after the project was officially approved, authorities have consented for the construction of a footbridge over the Cotai strip, which will link two casino resorts owned by Sands China.
A source from the Lands, Public Works and Transport Bureau (DSSOPT), quoted by Macau Business (MB), said the license to build a footbridge connecting Sands Cotai Central, scheduled to open in spring 2012, and Venetian was approved in October.
The idea to link both resorts by a footbridge was first mentioned back in 2009 but, according to a company source quoted by MB, Sands China had already submitted the project for approval a year earlier.
The footbridge will be a closed structure, equipped with elevators, escalators and air conditioning, and with direct access to both sides of Estrada do Istmo.
Sands China has also reached an agreement with rival gaming operator Melco Crown Entertainment on a second footbridge connecting Venetian and neighbouring resort City of Dreams, MB added.
The project has also been submitted to the DSSOPT and is currently waiting for approval.
