Special traffic and transport arrangements in Chai Wan for Chung Yeung Festival

     The Transport Department (TD) today (September 22) reminded the public that in view of the large number of grave sweepers travelling to the cemeteries in Cape Collinson and the concerns of the public transport trades, adjustments would be made to the related traffic and transport arrangements in order to ensure a safe and orderly manner for public to visit the cemeteries.

     The adjusted traffic and transport arrangements will be as follows:

September 24, 25 and October 8, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29 and 30
The special traffic and transport arrangements on the above dates will basically remain unchanged.  The left-turning movement from Lin Shing Road to Cape Collinson Road leading to the vicinity of the Chinese Permanent Cemetery will remain banned to all vehicular traffic (except for green minibuses (GMBs), hearses, funeral vehicles and vehicles with permits).

However, the Police may allow taxis and public light buses to enter Lin Shing Road and turn right onto Cape Collinson Road depending on the traffic conditions in the vicinity of the Chai Wan cemeteries.  The Police may implement partial road closure or intermittent road closure on the above dates if necessary.

October 1, 2, 5 and 9
Lin Shing Road and Cape Collinson Road will be closed to all vehicular traffic on the above dates (except for franchised buses, GMBs, hearses, funeral vehicles and vehicles with permits).

     Members of the public are advised to watch out for the latest traffic news on television and radio stations. They can also visit the TD's website ( or call 1823 Call Centre for the latest traffic and transport information.
