TD reminds members of public to pay attention to latest traffic situation
     The Transport Department (TD) today (November 13) reminded members of the public to pay attention to the traffic situation and the latest public transport service arrangement this morning before starting their journey.

     As at 6am today, the latest public transport situation is as follows:


     Except the East Rail Line, all MTR lines maintain services. Except the Airport Express Line, the train service will end at 10pm.

     From start of service, East Rail Line service is suspended. Mong Kok, Tuen Mun and Tseung Kwan O stations are closed and trains will not stop at these stations. Entrances/Exits at some stations are closed. Other train stations may be closed within a short period of time due to incidents. Members of the public are advised to continue to stay tuned to the latest traffic news.

     Light Rail Routes 705, 706 and 751P are suspended. Light Rail Routes 610, 614, 615, 751, and 614P are diverted. Light Rail Vehicles will not stop at Chestwood and Yau Oi stops.

(II) Franchised bus

     All franchised bus services will provide service this morning. As Tolo Highway is yet to be re-opened, services of relevant bus routes will not be provided.

     Some bus routes may be temporarily diverted subject to the road conditions. The major affected road sections include the section of Nathan Road between Prince Edward Road West and Waterloo Road and the section of Argyle Street near Nathan Road.

(III) Tramway

     Due to road condition, tram service will only be provided between Kennedy Town and Happy Valley.

     A total of 220 sets of damaged traffic lights are under urgent repair in various districts. Motorists and pedestrians are advised to be patient and pay 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.

     As traffic conditions and railway services may change within a short period of time, the TD urges commuters using public transport services to allow more travelling time and plan their journey in advance. Details of the latest traffic news are available at TD's website (www.td.gov.hk/en/home/index.html) or mobile application "HKeMobility".
