The expressway ends at Meiguan Road and North Ring Road in Shenzhen, which is not near the border. Motorists must continue south along Huanggang Road to the Lo Wu Control Point. There are no plans to connect the expressway directly to the border.
In Hong Kong, there are no plans to connect an expressway to the Shenzhen border. Hong Kong is not required to comply because it has its own highway system. Similarly, Macau is not required to comply and it is unknown if the Hong Kong and Macau sections will actually be expressways.
