The original bridge carried one lane of traffic in each direction. Construction of a twin bridge (the Second Ap Lei Chau Bridge) to its north was started in May 1991 and completed in July 1994, so that there are now two lanes in each direction.
Legislators approved funding for the Second Ap Lei Chau Bridge on 1 May 1991. It opened on 28 July 1994. The first person to drive across it was Kwong Hong-sang, Director of Highways, officiating at the opening ceremony.
The bridge is Ap Lei Chau's only road connection to Hong Kong Island, though it is not the only fixed link as a railway bridge, the Aberdeen Channel Bridge, opened in 2016 as part of the MTR's South Island Line.
