More HZMB private car quotas set

The governments of Hong Kong and Macau have agreed to increase the regular quotas for Hong Kong cross-boundary non-commercial private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge to Macau, the Transport Department announced today.   The decision was made to enhance traffic flow between Hong Kong and Macau, better utilising the bridge, the department said.   It will increase the Hong Kong quota by 1,000, following the earlier quota allocation of 1,800 for Hong Kong.   The additional quota will be distributed in two phases from the second quarter.   Half of the additional 1,000 quota allocations is for company applicants and the other half is for individual applicants. The quotas are valid for no more than three years. The eligibility criteria of quota applications remains the same.   Private cars allocated with Hong Kong quotas will be permitted to access the city of Macau multiple times using the bridge.   The Hong Kong quota allotments will be re-allocated upon expiry thro

Jordan food premises checked

The Food & Environmental Hygiene Department and Police took stringent enforcement action in the vicinity of Wai Ching Street in Jordan last night.   They inspected 13 catering premises, including six which were subjects of complaints. All the premises were not in operation.   The department said according to the current directions issued by the Secretary for Food & Health in relation to catering businesses under the Prevention & Control of Disease (Requirements and Directions) (Business & Premises) Regulation (Cap 599F), catering business operators must strictly comply with a series of requirements and restrictions.   Under the requirements and restrictions, a person responsible for carrying on a catering business must cease selling or supplying food or drink for consumption on the business premises from 6pm to 4.59am of the subsequent day. Additionally, no more than two people may be seated together at one table within any catering premises.   The poster containing the "LeaveHomeSafe" QR code must also be displayed at the entrance of the premises or at a conspicuous location.   If a person responsible for carrying on a catering business or scheduled premises contravenes the regulations, they face a maximum fine of $50,000 and six months' imprisonment.   The department said it will continue to step up enforcement action and publicity efforts and conduct joint operations with Police to ensure compliance with relevant regulations.
