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

InnoCarnival exhibit preview held

The Innovation & Technology Commission will hold InnoCarnival 2021 in October and a press preview was staged today to exhibit some of the research and development (R&D) projects.   One of them is an initiative by the University of Science & Technology to develop a system for conducting cycling and resistance tests and producing low-resistance suits for cycling athletes. The system has successfully assisted the Hong Kong cycling team in striving for an excellent performance at the Tokyo Olympics.   Among the other exhibits previewed today was the Logistics & Supply Chain MultiTech R&D Centre's Robo-9 which offers a cost-effective robot vision and sensing solution to serve as a walking guidance for the visually impaired.   Another exhibit developed by Diocesan Girls' School is the Asthemeter which has sensors that can help asthma patients detect any abnormality so they can seek help quickly.   Scheduled for October 23 to 31, InnoCarnival 2021 will be presented in a hybrid format as a physical and online event involving physical exhibits of local innovation and technology (I&T) achievements at the Science Park as well as webinars and online workshops.   More information will be available on the thematic website.
