Updated traffic and public transport situation
     The Transport Department (TD) today (September 21) said that the relevant departments continued to work at full strength to clear road surfaces affected by Typhoon Mangkhut so as to resume the remaining affected public transport services as soon as possible. Up to now, most of the major roads have been cleared.  However, more time is needed to clear the fallen trees on some roads.
     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.
     As at 5.30 am today, the latest public transport situation is as follows:

(I) MTR Services

Rail services         – all rail lines, service normal
Light Rail services – service normal
MTR Bus services  – normal frequency, except routes of some services have to be diverted
(II) Franchised Bus Services

    KMB Route No. 51 is still suspended.  The public may consider using the alternative arrangements indicated below:

     All other franchised bus services will continue providing service this morning, but some resumed routes will be temporarily diverted subject to the road conditions.
