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

Caspar Tsui inspects Victoria Park

Secretary for Home Affairs Caspar Tsui today visited Victoria Park in Causeway Bay to inspect the preparations for the reopening of some outdoor leisure facilities.   Accompanied by Director of Leisure & Cultural Services Vincent Liu, Mr Tsui was briefed on the Leisure & Cultural Services Department's preparatory work and special measures.   These include limiting the number of players permitted to stay in the courts or lanes, closure of spectator stands, placing disinfectant carpets, provision of alcohol-based handrub and stepping up cleaning measures at the venues.   The department also arranged staff at relevant venues to undergo COVID-19 nucleic acid tests once every 14 days to safeguard staff and public health.   Mr Tsui reminded people who exercise in the reopened outdoor leisure facilities to take note of social distancing. The number of people in group gatherings should not be more than as stipulated by the law and they must wear a mask before and after exercise.   They are also required to scan the LeaveHomeSafe QR code or register their name, contact number and the date and time of the visit before being allowed to enter those sports premises, he added.   Mr Tsui also thanked staff for sparing no effort in preparing outdoor leisure facilities for use by the public as soon as possible.   Outdoor leisure facilities to be reopened tomorrow include running tracks in sports grounds (for jogging only), tennis courts, bowling greens, gateball courts, Ngau Chi Wan Park Archery Range, Shek O Obstacle Golf Course, cycling facilities, outdoor badminton courts, outdoor table tennis tables, and the sports climbing walls, archery range, golf driving range and practice greens at Tuen Mun Recreation & Sports Centre.   People are urged to download and install the LeaveHomeSafe mobile app in advance to avoid a delay in their visits. Those who opt for registering their personal information at the venue are reminded to arrive earlier as a longer time is required for such registration.
