Transport Department to issue remaining Closed Road Permits to Hong Kong cross-boundary private cars using HZMB
     ​The Transport Department (TD) announced today (October 30) that letters have been sent to Hong Kong cross-boundary private car quota holders using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) who have applied for the Closed Road Permit (CRP) to notify them to go to the Cross Boundary Unit of the TD (Address: Room 1032, 10/F, Harbour Building, 38 Pier Road, Central, Hong Kong) to complete the necessary procedures during the period specified in the letter (with the first collection period starting from next Monday (November 5)). They are required to bring along the letter, the required supporting documents and the fee to collect the CRP.
     The Guangdong and Hong Kong governments earlier agreed to set the quota at 10 000 for Hong Kong cross-boundary private cars using the HZMB. To strengthen preparedness for the increased traffic flow during the initial period upon the commissioning of the HZMB, the TD announced on May 25 that it would issue CRPs to Hong Kong cross-boundary private car quota holders using the HZMB in phases. Around 5 000 CRPs were issued before the commissioning of the HZMB. With the commissioning of the mainline of the Southern Connection of the Tuen Mun-Chek Lap Kok Link with the HZMB, the traffic flow at the Hong Kong Port, the airport and in the vicinity of Tung Chung is generally smooth. The TD will issue the remaining 5 000 CRPs to applicants in order of their applications. It is anticipated that all the CRPs will be issued by the end of November.
     Applicants are reminded to collect the CRP according to the collection period as specified in the letter to avoid a long queuing time.
     Separately, the TD reiterated that owners of Hong Kong cross-boundary private cars under the regular quota for using other boundary crossings (i.e. Shenzhen Bay, Lok Ma Chau (Huanggang), Man Kam To and Sha Tau Kok) cannot use the HZMB to travel to the Zhuhai Port at this stage. The TD will continue to closely monitor the traffic situation in the vicinity of the Hong Kong Port, and will issue letters to owners of these cross-boundary private cars informing them of the arrangements for using the HZMB in due course.
