Hong Kong will issue the remaining 5,000 permits to private cars passing the world's longest sea-crossing bridge from next week, the Transport Department of HKSAR announced on Tuesday.

The governments of Guangdong province and Hong Kong agreed to set the quota at 10,000 for private cars of Hong Kong using the 55-km-long Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, which opened to traffic last week.

The Transport Department of HKSAR has handed out 5,000 permits to car owners before the bridge opened to traffic.

As the traffic flow at the Hong Kong Port of the HZMB was generally smooth after it started service on Oct 24, the department decided to issue the remaining 5,000 permits to applicants.

The remaining permits will be issued from Nov 5 through the end of the month, according to the department.
