"Stop-and-go" e-payment facilities available at Lion Rock Tunnel from this Sunday

     The Transport Department (TD) today (March 16) reminded the public that "stop-and-go" e-payment facilities will be provided at the manual toll booths of the Lion Rock Tunnel from Sunday (March 18).
     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 the toll successfully by tapping their cards.
     For enquiries on the operation of the "stop-and-go" e-payment system, motorists can call 1823.
