Updated traffic and public transport situation after Typhoon Mangkhut
     The Transport Department (TD) today (September 19) said that the relevant departments including the Highways Department, the Fire Services Department, the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department and the Civil Engineering and Development Department have been working at full strength to clear road surfaces affected by Typhoon Mangkhut so as to resume the public transport services as soon as possible.

     A spokesman for the TD reminded members of the public that they should pay attention to the traffic situation and the latest public transport service arrangement this morning before starting their journey. Motorists are advised to exercise tolerance and patience and drive carefully.
