TD appeals to public to pay attention to latest traffic situation
     The Transport Department (TD) today (‪November 26‬) appealed to 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:


     All MTR lines maintain services today. Except the Airport Express Line, the train service will ‪end at 11.30pm.
     University station remains closed. From start of service, East Rail Line service will be provided between Hung Hom and Lo Wu/Lok Ma Chau stations (not stopping at University Station).

     On Light Rail services, Route 751P‬ is substituted by Route 706, Route 614P heading for Siu Hong is substituted by Route 614; Route 615P heading for Tuen Mun Ferry Pier is substituted by Route Route 615. Routes 614 and 761P will be diverted. Route 751 will not stop at Chestwood and Yau Oi stops.

(II) Hung Hom Cross Harbour Tunnel

     Due to the damage to the facilities of the Cross-Harbour Tunnel (CHT), the tunnel remains closed. Relevant departments have been carrying out urgent repair works in full steam. Temporary closure arrangment for the nearby road sections is as follows:

     * Hong Chong Road (both bounds), Science Museum Road and Science Museum Path are temporarily closed;
     * Chatham Road South (South and North bounds) access to Cheong Wan Road is prohibited;
     * Austin Road (East bound) access to Cheong Wan Road is prohibited.

     To assist members of the public to commute, the TD has co-ordinated with franchised bus and ferry operators to strengthen services. Nine routes operating via CHT have been rerouted via Eastern Harbour Crossing (EHC), which include 101X, 107, 108, 111, 115, 116, 118 and 182, as well as ‪118P via Western‬ Harbour Crossing.

     The service hours of the following two special free ferry routes are ‪from 7am to 7pm‬, with peak frequency at 20-minute interval:

(1) Between Ma Tau Kok Public Pier in Kowloon City and Wan Chai Public Pier (near Golden Bauhinia Square)

(2) Between Hung Hom (South) Ferry Pier and Wan Chai Public Pier (near Golden Bauhinia Square)

     In view of the limited carrying capacity of the ferry services and to provide alternative for passengers, franchised bus operators will arrange special departures (Route 115) at Kowloon City Ferry Pier Bus Terminus via the EHC to Central.

     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".
