Temporary traffic arrangements at Gascoigne Road Flyover eastbound from this Saturday

     The Transport Department (TD) today (May 16) reminded members of the public that to facilitate road repair works by the Highways Department at the Gascoigne Road Flyover, the section from Waterloo Road to Jordan Road of the Gascoigne Road Flyover eastbound (to Hung Hom direction) will be closed to all vehicular traffic from 11pm this Saturday (May 18) to 6am next Monday (May 20).
     Motorists are advised to consider using alternative routes, such as Nathan Road or Waterloo Road, to travel to Hung Hom.
     Due to the road closure, the TD anticipates that the traffic in Yau Tsim Mong district towards Hung Hom, including Jordan Road and Ferry Street, will become very congested. Motorists should exercise tolerance and patience when passing through the affected road sections. Appropriate traffic signs will be erected on-site to guide motorists.
     Commuters taking public transport services are advised to use railway services, or bus services via Nathan Road or Waterloo Road to Hung Hom. They are also advised to plan their journey in advance and allow more travelling time to avoid delay.
     The TD and the Police will closely monitor the traffic situation and implement appropriate 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 arrangement have been uploaded to the TD's website (www.td.gov.hk).
