Special traffic and transport arrangements for public procession on Hong Kong Island this Sunday
     The Transport Department (TD) today (February 8) reminded the public that special traffic and transport arrangements will be implemented on Hong Kong Island this Sunday (February 11) to facilitate a public procession from Luard Road in Wan Chai to the Justice Place in Central.

     The special traffic and transport arrangements will mainly include:

* From about noon, Lower Albert Road eastbound between Ice House Street and Garden Road, and the slow lane of Garden Road northbound between Cheung Kong Center and Lower Albert Road, will be closed;

* From about 2pm, the roads in the vicinity of Wan Chai Southorn Playground (including parts of Johnston Road westbound and the section of Luard Road and Fenwick Street between Johnston Road and Hennessy Road) will be closed;

* From about 2.30pm, parts of Hennessy Road westbound and Queensway westbound will be intermittently closed; and

* A total of 18 bus routes and two green minibus routes will be temporarily diverted. The public transport operators concerned will arrange publicity to inform passengers of the temporary arrangements.

     The TD anticipates that the traffic in the vicinity of Wan Chai, Admiralty and Central will be significantly congested. Motorists are advised to avoid driving to the affected areas. They should exercise tolerance and patience in case of traffic congestion and follow police instructions.

     Members of the public who plan to go to the affected areas are advised to plan their routes in advance, allow more travelling time to cater for unexpected delay and use public transport services as far as possible, in particular railway services. Public transport commuters are advised to pay attention to the arrangements of route diversions, suspension and relocation of stops.

     The TD and the Police will closely monitor the traffic situation and implement appropriate measures whenever necessary. Members of the public are advised to be alert to the latest traffic news through the media.

     Details of the special traffic and transport arrangements are available at the TD's website (www.td.gov.hk). For enquiries, please call 1823.
