The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao (HKZM) Bridge Authority is letting light passenger vehicles use the bridge for free during the Labour Day holidays, which stretch from 1 to 5 May.

The authority announced on Thursday that it was waiving the usual 150 yuan toll, TDM reported. Light passenger vehicles are defined as private or hired cars with less than seven seats.

Plenty of traffic is expected to utilise the bridge during the holiday, with the main rush predicted from 9 am to 4 pm on Saturday 4 May as motorists travel from Hong Kong to Zhuhai or Macao, according to the HKZM Bridge Authority.

A large amount of traffic is also forecast for Sunday, 5 May.

The authority has called for drivers from Macao, Zhuhai and Hong Kong to travel during off-peak hours if possible.

While Labour Day is a single-day public holiday in Macao on 1 May, mainland Chinese get three days off. When added to the weekend, it creates a five-day tourism surge for the SAR.
