The operation of the traffic lights damaged since October had been fully recovered last week. Out of the total 100 sets of traffic lights damaged or disrupted again yesterday (October 20) , 93 sets have yet to resume operation. They are mainly located in Yau Tsim Mong District including Nathan Road, Canton Road, Mong Kok Road, Jordan Road, Argyle Street and Waterloo Road. Traffic light is an important system to maintain road safety. The TD has liaised with relevant departments to conduct repair works since last night, when the conditions are safe and practicable. It is expected that the repair works for the damaged traffic lights will take some time to complete. Motorists and pedestrians are advised to be patient and pay extra attention to road safety when passing through the affected junctions. The TD appeals to members of the public again to be considerate to motorists and pedestrians, and stop damaging traffic light facilities.
Members of the public are advised to stay alert to the latest traffic news and allow more time for travel. For details of the above public transport arrangements, members of the public can visit the TD's website or get the information through the TD's mobile application "HKeMobility".
