The new dual-lane tunnels and slow-traffic passageway through Banzhang Mt are to be broken through in mid-August and opened by next spring. The passages will connect the North Yingbin-West Renmin intersection in Ningxi to Jiuzhou Avenue in Jida.

The roadways are designed to accommodate a speed of 60 kmph (37 mph). They will form a dual eight-lane structure along with the current Banzhang Tunnel. As of June 2, the first tunnel had 1,065.5 m (1,165 yd) evacuated out of 1,235 m (1,351 yd), and the other had 883.5 m (966 yd) out of 1,220 m (1,334 yd), according to the project head.

The city's first slow-traffic tunnel, with 952.5 m (1,042 yd) out of 1,235 m already drilled, has exclusive lanes for cyclists and pedestrians commuting between Ningxi in New Xiangzhou and Gongbei.  

The three passageways will further alleviate traffic pressure on downtown Zhuhai.
