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

New TV frequencies reminder issued

The Office of the Communications Authority announced today that six digital TV programme channels in Hong Kong will use new transmitting frequencies starting December 1.   Property owners and managers who have not yet arranged with their contractors to reconfigure the common antenna broadcast distribution (CABD) systems of their buildings must act immediately, the office said.   Otherwise, residents may not be able to continue receiving the TV programme channels concerned after midnight on that day, it added.   The six channels are Jade 81 of Television Broadcasts Limited, ViuTVsix 96 and ViuTV 99 of HK Television Entertainment Company Limited and RTHK TV 31, RTHK TV 32 and RTHK TV 33 of Radio Television Hong Kong.   So far around 90% of households in multi-storey buildings with CABD systems in Hong Kong have completed the reconfiguration work.   Upon the completion of the reconfiguration of their CABD systems by contractors and on their advice, property owners and managers should inform the residents that they may need to rescan for the TV programme channels on their digital TV receivers.   Property managers should pay particular attention to the elderly, ethnic minorities and residents with special needs and provide appropriate assistance as necessary.   Households using self-provided antennae, including residents of village houses, bungalows and old tenement buildings, do not need to adjust their digital TV receivers or antennae at this juncture.   They should rescan for TV programme channels on their digital TV receivers only if they cannot receive any of the TV programme channels after midnight on December 1.   Call 2961 6333 for enquiries.   Click here for the guide on rescanning digital TV programme channels.
