Temporary traffic arrangements for tram track renewal works in Eastern District from next Monday
     The Transport Department (TD) today (November 2) reminded the public that to facilitate tram track renewal work in Eastern District, the following temporary traffic arrangements will be implemented from about 10am next Monday (November 6) to 10am on November 13 (Monday) or until the above works are completed:

(1) Lane closure
     The following traffic lanes will be temporarily closed to all vehicular traffic (except trams):

* A section of the offside lane of Shau Kei Wan Road eastbound near Hoi An Street; and
* A section of the tram lane on Shau Kei Wan Road westbound near Hoi An Street.

(2) Temporary Restricted Zone
     The northern kerbside lane of Shau Kei Wan Road near Hoi An Street will be temporarily designated as a restricted zone 24 hours daily.

     Appropriate traffic signs and road markings will be erected on-site to guide motorists. The TD anticipates that the traffic in the vicinity of Shau Kei Wan Road will be relatively congested during the above works period. Motorists should exercise tolerance and patience in case of traffic congestion. Members of the public are advised to plan their journey early to allow more traveling time to cater for unexpected delay, and stay alert to the latest traffic news in the media.

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