This year is the first spring festival for the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. According to the data released by the Guangdong Provincial Department of Transportation, as of January 30 this year, the cumulative traffic volume of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge was about 350,000 vehicles, with an average daily mileage of 3,560. During the Spring Festival holiday, with the emergence of peak tourists from the mainland, it is expected that the traffic volume will increase slightly.
"Hello, the captain" "Please fasten your seat belt, please sit down during the photo shoot"… This is the words that Hou Qiusheng communicates with the passengers before driving.
“It’s very safe to drive on the bridge.” Hou Qiusheng, who had previously driven buses in Guangdong, said that the most important thing for drivers is safety. “Drivers who can drive on the bridge are generally safer and safer. There are also many mileages."
In addition, the general quality of passengers on the bridge is relatively high. "There is no situation where passengers are required to get off the train if they do not arrive at the station." Hou Qiusheng said that with the arrival of the holidays, the young Hong Kong and Macao youths have gradually increased and are very polite.
During the peak passenger flow of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, Hou Qiusheng had to travel about 8 miles on the bridge, but he did not feel tired. "Because there are no traffic lights on the bridge, there are fewer brakes and it is basically direct."
Zhu Jianren Wu Jianxi had previously opened a casino shuttle bus in Macau for 12 years. Since the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is relatively comfortable to drive and the management of the bus driver is strict, he chose to become the shuttle bus driver of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. "Sometimes on the bridge. The roads are relatively large, and there will be speed limit warnings for buses. Drivers must drive in strict accordance with the risk warnings, otherwise they will be required to stop working and re-learn."
Every shuttle bus on the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is equipped with speed monitoring, GPS positioning and distance keeping system. All operating conditions will be transmitted to the background to predict future risks. If the driver hits "yawn" three times in 20 seconds, the driver will be fatigued in the background, and the system will remind the driver and alarm through the speaker on the vehicle.
In order to open a "safe car", Wu Jianying insisted on daily sports, running in Zhuhai Lovers Road and doing pull-ups. He is 45 years old and looks like he is in his early 30s. "I have no occupational diseases and I am strong. The body can open a 'safety car'."
With the opening of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, the travel time between the three places has been shortened.
“There are a lot of people from Hong Kong and Macao who go to Gongbei in Zhuhai through the bridge, especially the aunts living in Tung Chung, Hong Kong. Every time they carry a small baggage car with vegetables, sweet potatoes, etc.” Wu Jianxi said that due to the age of 65 The old man implemented a preferential fare price, so he attracted people to Zhuhai to drink morning tea. "Many of them are familiar faces, and they will go to Zhuhai once every few days."
Chen Fazheng, who has been engaged in the transportation industry for 21 years, is safely driving 2 million kilometers. On the first day of the opening of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, he became the first passenger car driver to Hong Kong at the Zhuhai Port of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. "The traffic is very high for several months."
In response to the increase in passenger traffic during the Spring Festival, Chen Fazheng said that on the basis of the current 110 drivers, the bus operator of the bridge trained 45 drivers. After the Spring Festival, his family plans to take the bridge shuttle bus to Hong Kong to play. "I hope they can take my car."
"The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is China's pride." When he said this, Chen Fazheng could not help but give a thumbs up. His New Year's wish is to hope that the operation of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge will flourish.
According to the Guangdong Provincial Department of Transportation, during the Spring Festival (January 21 to March 1), the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge will invest 162 shuttle buses, with nearly 2,000 daily shifts. According to the passenger flow situation, it will also coordinate the cross-border direct passenger transport enterprises to allocate 40 cross-border direct bus vehicles to support the operation of the Hong Kong Pearl Line.
