Hong Kong announces measures to control HZMB traffic flow

The Hong Kong government has announced new measures to control traffic flow on the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge, local media reports.

This includes an online pre-booking system for shuttle buses, which is set to be launched today.

The service would allow travel agents and tour group organizers to purchase shuttle bus tickets ahead of a scheduled trip.

Daily average crossings on the HZMB is estimated to be around 64,000 – with the highest daily traffic recorded so far at 103,000.

Around 97 percent of the vehicles using the bridge are shuttle busses and mini-buses.
