Publish Date: 05/05/2022

The footbridge escalator in Rua dos Pescadores had a malfunction earlier. After inspection, it was found that the steps, chains and other parts had been damaged. It was initially estimated that the malfunction was related to maintenance problems. Since the related equipment is still in the warranty period, the responsible company has been instructed to repair and follow up as soon as possible. However, the parts involved in the repair cannot be immediately delivered to Macao due to the pandemic. In order to ensure public safety, the escalator is suspended from use. The Municipal Affairs Bureau apologises for the inconvenience caused and will urge the escalator maintenance company to speed up the repair and aim to complete it by the end of May.
