Provision of "stop-and-go" e-payment facilities at Aberdeen Tunnel to begin on September 24
     The Transport Department (TD) today (September 12) said that "stop-and-go" e-payment facilities will be provided at the manual toll booths of the Aberdeen Tunnel from September 24 (Sunday). Motorists will be able to pay tolls by Octopus or contactless credit cards (including Visa, Mastercard and UnionPay) issued by local banks, saving time otherwise spent on cash counting and receiving change.
     Two sets of card reader panels will be installed at each manual toll booth to serve vehicles of different heights. The card reader on the left of each panel will accept Octopus card payment and the one on the right will accept contactless credit cards. Cash payment will still be accepted if motorists cannot pay tolls successfully by tapping their cards.

     The Aberdeen Tunnel will be the second tunnel to implement the "stop-and-go" e-payment system to provide motorists with additional and convenient means of toll payment after its first launch at the Shing Mun Tunnels. The TD will introduce the e-payment system in phases at the other government tolled tunnels and roads, and will make separate announcements before the implementation.

     Motorists can browse the TD's website (www.td.gov.hk) or call 1823 for enquiries on the operation of the "stop-and-go" e-payment system.
