Government clarifies proposal to cancel Central to Admiralty segment of tram service

     On a recent submission to the Town Planning Board (TPB) to cancel the Central to Admiralty segment of the tram service, a Government spokesman today (August 19) clarified that it is neither a government proposal nor a proposal by a consultancy commissioned by the Government.

     All submissions will be discussed by the TPB in accordance with the established procedures.

     Under the existing transport policy, trams provide frequent and affordable services without roadside emissions on the north of Hong Kong Island for an average of around 180 000 passengers every day, performing a supplementary role. There is no change to the role of trams under the policy.
