Temporary traffic and transport arrangements at Tate's Cairn Tunnel this Saturday and Sunday
     The Transport Department (TD) today (June 21) reminded members of the public that to facilitate road repair work at the Tate's Cairn Tunnel, the following temporary traffic and transport arrangements will be implemented at the Tate's Cairn Tunnel from 10pm on Saturday (June 23) to 6am on Sunday (June 24):
(i) The slow lane of the Tate's Cairn Tunnel (Kowloon bound) from its toll plaza to its Kowloon exit, and the slip road leading from the Kowloon exit to Hammer Hill Road and Lung Cheung Road, will be closed to all vehicular traffic;
(ii) Vehicles from the Tate's Cairn Tunnel Kowloon bound exit heading for Hammer Hill Road and Lung Cheung Road eastbound will be temporarily diverted; and
(iii) KMB routes No. 74D, 74X, 75X, 80X, 82X, 83X, 84M, 85M, 88, 89C, 89D, 89X, 277X and 286M heading for Kowloon will be diverted from 9.30pm on June 23 to 6am on June 24. The bus stop on Choi Hung Road westbound near Sze Mei Street serving KMB routes No. 82X and 85M will be temporarily relocated.
     Due to the lane closure, the TD anticipates that the traffic at the Tate's Cairn Tunnel will be relatively busy during the above period. Motorists should exercise tolerance and patience when passing through the road sections concerned and consider using alternative routes. Appropriate traffic signs will be erected on-site to guide motorists.
     Members of the public are advised to use railway services or bus services via the Lion Rock Tunnel or the Tsing Sha Highway to Kowloon. They are also advised to plan their journey in advance and allow more travelling time to avoid unexpected delay.
     The TD and the tunnel operator will closely monitor the traffic situation and implement appropriate traffic and transport measures whenever necessary. Members of the public are advised to stay alert to the latest traffic news on radio and television.  
     Details of the temporary traffic and transport arrangements are now available on the TD's website (www.td.gov.hk).
