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

Ling Ao power plant sound

An operational event at Ling Ao Nuclear Power Station on March 31 did not affect the plant's safe operation, the Security Bureau said today.   The case, reported on the Daya Bay Nuclear Power Operations & Management Company's website, involved a relay in the backup diesel generator of the station's Unit 1.   During a regular test, station staff found a dysfunctional relay and immediately replaced it according to the procedures. Its function has returned to normal after replacement.   Relevant statistics suggested that the dysfunction time of the relay had exceeded the operational and technical requirements.   The bureau said the event was classified as a Level 0 deviation in accordance with the International Nuclear & Radiological Event Scale and relevant nuclear safety regulations, adding that it did not affect the unit's safe operation, workers' health, nearby public or the environment.
