Hong Kong passenger flow
The Immigration Department of Hong Kong predicts that nearly 3.73 million passengers would pass through Hong Kong's air, land and sea control points, when the forthcoming Ching Ming festival starts on 4th April, 2014 and ends on 7th April, 2014, constituting an increase of nearly 14.3 % over the equivalent period of the previous year.
Among them, 76 % or about 2.85 million travelers would go through land frontier points of control. The number of outgoing travelers by means of land frontier points of control would attain its peak on 4th April, 2014 with about 385, 000 passengers leaving Hong Kong whereas the number of incoming passengers would attain its peak on 5th April, 2014 with about 444, 000 travelers coming to Hong Kong.

Lo Wu would be a busy point of control and it is expected that there would be about 1.27 million passengers, with an average of around 318, 000 passengers on a daily basis, on a journey through this point of control during the time of festival. It is estimated that the passenger traffic would be intense at the Lok Ma Chau Spur Line, Lok Ma Chau, and Shenzhen Bay points of control, with the expected number of passenger’s at 165, 000, 79, 000, and 116, 000.

In order to manage the estimated intense traffic during the time of the festival, the Immigration Department of Hong Kong has reorganized added workforce to strengthen different points of control and has reduced 'leave' for frontier officials for flexible arrangement and is executing additional approval counters and booths. Additional security guards would also be arranged to render crowd administration support.

In addition, the department of Immigration, the department of the Customs and Excise, MTR Corporation and the Police would organize a cooperative command centre at Lo Wu Point of Control in order to make the required arrangements. The Department of Hong Kong Immigration would also build close communication with the border inspection authorities of the Mainland. In order to make sure that there would be a smooth traffic flow of the passengers, the flow of the passengers would be monitored carefully and suitable traffic divergence plans would be adopted when needed.
