 "Stop-and-go" e-payment facilities available at Aberdeen Tunnel this Sunday
     The Transport Department (TD) today (September 21) reminded the public that "stop-and-go" e-payment facilities will be provided at the manual toll booths of the Aberdeen Tunnel on Sunday (September 24).
     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 after its launch at the Shing Mun Tunnels. The e-payment system will be introduced in phases at other government tolled tunnels and roads.
