Temporary traffic arrangements at East Kowloon Way this Sunday

     The Transport Department (TD) today (September 7) reminded members of the public that to facilitate urgent road repair work at the East Kowloon Way eastbound, the slow lane of the section of the East Kowloon Way eastbound between Fat Kwong Street and Chi Kiang Street will be temporarily closed to all vehicular traffic from 8am to 4pm this Sunday (September 10).

     Due to the lane closure, the TD anticipates that the traffic along Chatham Road North eastbound and the East Kowloon Way eastbound will be relatively busy during the above period. Motorists passing through the road section concerned should exercise tolerance and patience and drive with utmost care. Appropriate traffic signs will be erected on-site to guide motorists.

     Motorists are advised to consider using alternative routes to Kowloon central and Kowloon east. They are also advised to plan their journeys in advance and allow more travelling time to avoid unexpected delay.

     The TD and the Police will closely monitor the traffic situation and implement appropriate measures whenever necessary. Motorists and the public are advised to stay alert to the latest traffic news on radio and television.

     Details of the temporary traffic arrangements are now available on the TD's website (www.td.gov.hk).
