The Lotus Bridge is located about 8 km (5 mi) west of the Macau International Airport. The bridge has three lanes in each direction, and follows Macau's rule of the road of driving on the left. The approach roads to the bridge on the mainland Chinese side have an unusual arrangement to facilitate switching traffic to driving on the right in mainland China. The bridge has been designed by Eng Nuno Costa (Profabril) and a Chinese company.
