Temporary traffic and transport arrangements for tram track renewal works in Wan Chai District from this Friday

     The Transport Department (TD) today (March 26) reminded the public that to facilitate tram track renewal work at Hennessy Road in Wan Chai District, parts of the traffic lanes of Hennessy Road near Tin Lok Lane will be temporarily closed from about 10am this Friday (March 30) to 11.59pm next Thursday (April 5).
     To facilitate the above works, Citybus routes No. 72, 72A, 96 and 592 will be diverted via Leighton Road and Pennington Street starting from their first departures on March 30 until about 11.59pm on April 5, before resuming their original routings. In connection with the above bus diversions, temporary bus stop arrangements will be implemented for the affected bus routes.
     In addition, the Tin Lok Lane tram stop (No. 112) will be temporarily relocated about 15 metres backward.
     Appropriate traffic signs and road markings will be erected on site to guide motorists. The public transport operators will display notices to advise passengers of the above temporary arrangements.
     The TD anticipates that the traffic at the above road sections will be relatively busy. Motorists should exercise tolerance and patience in case of traffic congestion. Public transport commuters are advised to pay attention to the arrangements of route diversions and suspension or relocation of stops. Members of the public are advised to be alert to the latest traffic news through the media or the department's website (www.td.gov.hk).
