     The Transport Department (TD) today (July 25) reminded the public that special traffic and transport arrangements will be implemented in So Kon Po and Causeway Bay on Wednesday (July 27) and Saturday (July 30) for the holding of football matches at the Hong Kong Stadium.

     The special traffic and transport arrangements will mainly include:

* From about 4pm on July 27 and July 30, the section of Caroline Hill Road between Leighton Road and Cotton Path, and the section of Hysan Avenue westbound between Sunning Road and Hoi Ping Road, will be closed.

* From about 10pm on July 27 and July 30, Caroline Hill Road, Eastern Hospital Road, Cotton Path, Link Road northbound and Hoi Ping Road will be closed for the dispersal of spectators until the crowds have dispersed and road closures are lifted.
