Macao vehicles with single license plates should be able to enter Hengqin New Area on Dec 20, according to Macao SAR Secretariat for Security Director Wong Sio Chak (Huang Shaoze).
Wong said on Nov 28 that Zhuhai had faxed the preliminary permission scheme to Macao that morning. The final arrangement is to be announced immediately after negotiations between the two administrations.

Macao Customs will further enhance vehicle clearance efficiency by importing the new-generation automatic vehicle border-crossing system at four checkpoints: the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Macao Portarea, Zhuhai-Macao Cross-Border Industrial Zone, Port Gate, and Cotai, Wong declared.
Macao’s Public Security Police Force will continue to upgrade customs facilities on behalf of self-service vehicle clearance and efficiency. It will also explore a new customs clearance mode of Joint Inspection & One-Time Release with counterparts in the Chinese mainland, he added.
