     The TD anticipates that the traffic in the vicinity of So Kon Po and Causeway Bay will be very congested. Motorists are advised to avoid driving to the affected areas. In case of traffic congestion, motorists should exercise tolerance and patience, and follow the instructions of the Police. Members of the public who plan to go to the affected areas are advised to plan their routes in advance, allow more travelling time to cater for unexpected delay, and use public transport services as far as possible.
     Details of the special traffic and transport arrangements have been uploaded to the TD's website (www.td.gov.hk). Members of the public may call 1823 for enquiries, or stay alert to the latest traffic and transport news through the TD's website, the TD's mobile application "HKeMobility" and bus companies' websites and apps, as well as radio and television.
