HONG KONG, Oct. 24 -- Governments of China's Guangdong Province and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) have agreed to increase the regular quota for Hong Kong cross-boundary private cars using the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge by 5,000 to enhance the cross-boundary road traffic between the two regions.

The increase in quota will allow owners of dual-plate private cars in Hong Kong to better use the bridge to travel to and from Guangdong, the Transport Department of the HKSAR government said.

The quota increase came one year after the mega bridge connecting Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macao formally opened to traffic.

The additional regular quota for Hong Kong cross-boundary private cars using the bridge will be processed and regulated under the new management measures as implemented from April 15, 2019, by the Guangdong Provincial Public Security Department.

Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan or foreign investors with an accumulative tax amount of at least 100,000 yuan (about 14,160 U.S. dollars) in Guangdong Province in the past three years and other eligible residents can apply for the increased quota, according to the Transport Department of the HKSAR government.

Meanwhile, the quota for mainland cross-boundary private cars using the bridge will increase by 500.
