ADDITIONAL TWO HOUR TRIAL OPENING FOR GONGBEI BORDER STARTS TODAY, GOV'T WANTS 24-HR OPERATION Macau Daily Times
The Gongbei border gate on the Zhuhai side is running for longer from today until Saturday (April 6) as a temporary trial measure. Under the approval, the Gongbei border will open at 6am and close at 1am for three successive days for the Ching Ming Festival, from today onwards. “We hope to realize 24-hour operations for the border gates, but we have to discuss with other related parties, such as the central government and the Zhuhai side,” Alexis Tam said, a spokeman for the MSAR government.
