Temporary traffic arrangements for tram track renewal works in Eastern District from next Monday

     The Transport Department (TD) today (November 9) reminded the public that to facilitate tram track renewal works in Eastern District, the following traffic lanes will be temporarily closed to all vehicular traffic from about 10am next Monday (November 13) to 10am on November 20 (Monday) or until the above works are completed:
(1) A section of the nearside lane of Hoi An Street near Shau Kei Wan Road; and
(2) A section of the tram lane on Shau Kei Wan Road westbound near Hoi An Street (except trams).
     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 and allow more traveling time to cater for unexpected delay, and stay alert to the latest traffic news through the media.
     Details of the temporary traffic arrangement are now available on the department's website (www.td.gov.hk).
