HK sets new cross-boundary land transport arrangements

The new setup begins on 14 March.

The government has set new cross-boundary land transport arrangements to further stabilise goods supply to Hong Kong from the Mainland whilst reducing the risk of epidemic transmission on both sides.

Under the new setup which started 14 March, all cross-boundary goods vehicles after entering Shenzhen from Hong Kong must transport goods at centralised transfer yards located at the following:

  • Huanggang Port
  • Man Kam to Boundary Control Point (BCP)
  • Liantang BCP; and
  • Shenzhen Bay Port in Shenzhen

Man Kam To BCP’s operating hours have likewise been extended to 7 am to 3 am the next day to ensure a stable supply of fresh produce to Hong Kong.

“The Transport and Housing Bureau, together with other relevant departments including the Transport Department, the Customs and Excise Department, and the Centre for Food Safety of the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department, will maintain close liaison with the Mainland authorities, monitor the traffic situations at different ports/BCPs, and stay connected with the trade, to ensure smooth cross-boundary cargo transportation and unimpeded connection with mainland drivers,” the government said.

Meanwhile, the government has been improving other transport arrangements on air, water, and railway.

“The HKSAR Government will continue to explore with the Guangdong Provincial Government and the Shenzhen Municipal People's Government various means to ensure a stable and sufficient goods supply from the Mainland to Hong Kong, and to support the Mainland's anti-epidemic work,” they added.

Gov’t proposes regulatory regime on the use of autonomous vehicles
The bill will be up for the Legislative Council’s reading on 14 December.   The proposed new regulatory framework for the trial and specified use of autonomous vehicles –- Road Traffic (Amendment) (Autonomous Vehicles) Bill 2022 –- will be introduced to the Legislative Council on 14 December.   The Transport & Logistics Bureau, which proposed the bill, said autonomous vehicles technology has the promising advantage of enhancing road safety, optimising the use of limited road space and thereby reducing car accidents arising from human error.    In the Hong Kong Smart City Blueprint 2.0 published in December 2020, one of the smart mobility initiatives is to facilitate the technological advancement and industry development in Vehicle-to-Everything and autonomous vehicles.   The government then proposed amending the Road Traffic Ordinance and also empowering the Secretary for Transport & Logistics to make new subsidiary legislation, Autonomous Vehicles Regulation, to establish a suitable regulatory regime to facilitate the trial and specified use of autonomous vehicles.
