Any talk about opening the bridge up for more cars? For example, if I wanted to drive my Hong Kong car to Macau, I could just pay the toll and go?

I believe it is a one-stop shop to apply for permits across all jurisdictions. The quotas remain for the bridge though and we haven't heard of any increases lately.

That being said, you cannot drive into Macau even with the proper paperwork. The furthest you can go is the parking lot on the Macau side of the border (on the boundary crossing island).

Cars allowed to travel across Greater Bay Area to boost traffic flow on mega Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge
South China Morning Post Excerpt
Oct 24, 2019

Transport authorities have sought to boost the underused mega bridge connecting Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macau by allowing local private vehicles to travel across the Greater Bay Area.

Announcing the scheme on Wednesday, the Transport Department said private cars from Hong Kong and Macau could now travel between the two special administrative regions, Zhuhai and Shenzhen, via eight approved land crossings.

Until now, private cars from Hong Kong have only been allowed to travel between Hong Kong and Guangdong or Hong Kong and Macau, but they could not travel from Macau to Zhuhai.

How is the Shenzhen connection to be made? Particularly without the bridge Tuen Mun - border crossing.

They probably meant the existing roads to Shenzhen from the north side. I recall not all of them allow private cars through.
