Special boundary-crossing and relevant transport arrangements during Lunar New Year holidays
The following is a press release from HKSAR:
The Government has earlier announced that in order to effectively facilitate the diversion of cross-boundary passenger and vehicular movements during the Lunar New Year holidays, a consensus was reached with the Governments of Guangdong Province and Shenzhen Municipality to make special boundary-crossing arrangements in two key areas:
(1) Passenger and passenger vehicle clearance services at the Shenzhen Bay Port, which usually close at midnight, will operate overnight to provide round-the-clock services from February 9 to 13. For more effective diversion of cross-boundary private cars during the five-day implementation of round-the-clock clearance at the Shenzhen Bay Port, only cross-boundary private cars issued with a permit for the Lok Ma Chau/Huanggang (LMC/HG) Control Point are allowed to cross the LMC/HG Control Point during the early-morning hours. For cross-boundary private cars issued with a permit for the ports at LMC/HG, Shenzhen Bay, Man Kam To and Sha Tau Kok, they can use the Shenzhen Bay Port during the early-morning hours; and
(2) Passenger clearance service at the Lo Wu Control Point, which usually closes at midnight, will be extended to 2am the next day on February 9 and 11. The operating hours of the MTR East Rail Line will be extended accordingly.
