Temporary traffic and transport arrangements in Wan Chai North from Saturday 
     The Transport Department (TD) today (October 17) reminded the public that to facilitate the construction work for the Central-Wan Chai Bypass, temporary traffic and transport arrangements will be implemented in Wan Chai North from about 11pm on Saturday (October 21) to 10am on Sunday (October 22).

     The temporary traffic and transport arrangements mainly include:
* The Hung Hing Road Flyover will be temporarily closed to all vehicular traffic; and

* During the road closure period, New World First Bus routes 720 and 722 as well as Citybus routes 780 and 788 will be temporarily diverted to omit Wan Chai North.

     Appropriate traffic signs will be erected on-site to guide motorists. The bus companies will display notices to advise passengers of the above temporary arrangements.

     The TD anticipates that the traffic in the vicinity of Wan Chai North and Gloucester Road will be relatively congested. Motorists should exercise tolerance and patience in case of traffic congestion and consider using other alternative routes. Members of the public are advised to plan their journey early and allow more traveling time to cater for unexpected delay, and be alert to the latest traffic news through the media.

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