Traffic lights damaged
     The Transport Department said today (October 2) that after overnight repair works, there are still 30 sets of traffic lights, which were damaged or tampered with yesterday, being repaired. These traffic lights are located mainly in Wong Tai Sin, Sham Shui Po, Yau Tsim Mong, Sha Tin and Tuen Mun. The concerned departments are actively following up on the repair works.

     As some of the traffic lights have yet to resume normal operation, motorists are advised to drive with utmost care and patience when passing through these junctions, pay extra attention to the traffic signs, particularly the safety of pedestrians crossing the roads.

     Pedestrians are advised to use crossing aids nearby such as footbridges and pedestrian subways for crossing the roads. They should pay attention to vehicles when crossing junctions with damaged traffic lights.

     The Transport Department is closely monitoring the traffic conditions at the concerned junctions and is committed to maintain normal operation of traffic facilities.
