Macau sets 300 quota for HK cars driving via mega bridgeLocal | 15 Feb 2018 4:51 pm
Three hundred private vehicles from Hong Kong will be allowed to drive to Macau through the mega bridge under a three-year quota arrangement, the Macau government has announced.
On the other hand, 600 Macau registered private vehicles will be allowed to use the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. Of these, 500 cars will be allowed for a year and 100 will be able to drive for six months.
Authorities in Hong Kong and Macau have reached agreement on the issue, the Macau government said.
Macau-bound Hong Kong-registered vehicles that have not been registered under the regular quota initiative can apply to join a transit scheme. Drivers of Hong Kong-registered vehicles wishing to enter Macau via the bridge will be required to register in advance and reserve a space in a particular car park with 3,000 spaces for private vehicles. The car park is at the eastern end of the artificial island that also accommodates the Macau boundary crossing checkpoint, the Macau end of the bridge, the government explained.
Hong Kong vehicles registered under the transit scheme will not be allowed to drive directly into Macau. They can reach Macau from the car park on public transport.
