Toll-free policy for small passenger vehicles using Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Main Bridge during National Day holidays to be implemented

     A spokesman for the Transport Department (TD) said today (September 27) that according to a notification from the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) Authority, the toll-free policy for small passenger vehicles will be implemented on the HZMB for seven consecutive days from 0.00am on October 1 to midnight on October 7. During the period, small passenger vehicles travelling to the Zhuhai or Macao Ports via the Toll Plaza of the HZMB will not be required to pay the toll of RMB150, while the arrangements for small passenger vehicles to pass through the electronic toll lanes (i.e. non-stop) and manual toll lanes (i.e. stop to pay) will remain unchanged.
     Small passenger vehicles are passenger carrying vehicles with seven seats or less (including the driver's seat), i.e. private cars and hire cars.
     The HZMB Main Bridge is located within Mainland waters and the Toll Plaza is also situated in the Mainland. According to the territoriality principle, the HZMB Authority, which is responsible for the operation of the Main Bridge, will implement the Mainland's nationwide toll-free policy on small passenger vehicles during the National Day holidays (from October 1 to 7).
     The spokesman reminded members of the public that if they wish to drive their private cars going to or returning from Zhuhai or Macao, the private car must possess a relevant HZMB private car quota allotment, licences and permits issued by the three governments, or have completed registration for the HZMB Macao Port Park-and-Ride Scheme and obtained a valid permit, including reserving to use the East Car Park of the HZMB Frontier Post at Macao Port.
