     Pending on the situation on October 31 night, there is a possibility of extensive road blockage in the vicinity of Tin Hau, Causeway Bay, Wan Chai, Admiralty and Central, breaching public peace and public order.  Members of the public should avoid travelling to the concerned area when public disorder occurs.  Police may also close some of the roads if necessary. Cooperation and understanding from members of public will be very much appreciated.
