Public reminded to pay attention to traffic arrangements of Lam Tin Interchange, Tseung Lam Highway and Wan O Road and bus services for Tseung Kwan O-Lam Tin Tunnel
     The Transport Department (TD) today (December 10) reminded members of the public that the Lam Tin Interchange, Tseung Lam Highway and Wan O Road (including the associated cycle track and footpath) will be commissioned at 8am tomorrow (December 11). Motorists can use the new route to travel to and from Tseung Kwan O and Kwun Tong as well as the Eastern Harbour Crossing.

     "The traffic at the new road sections and the adjacent areas will sometimes remain busy after the commissioning of the new roads. Depending on the traffic conditions and destination, motorists may choose appropriate routes, including the Tseung Kwan O Tunnel, to travel to and from Tseung Kwan O. They should pay attention to the signage at the scene, and reduce speed and be courteous when approaching the new roundabout, signalised junctions and merging points," a TD spokesman said. 

     In addition, five new franchised bus routes will provide services from December 12 (Monday) via the Tseung Kwan O-Lam Tin Tunnel in the morning and evening peak times from Mondays to Fridays (except public holidays), including: 
  • KMB Route No. 96 (Hong Sing Garden - Tai Po Industrial Estate);
  • KMB Route No. 290E (Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate - Tsuen Wan West Station);
  • KMB Route No. 298X (Hang Hau (North) - Cheung Sha Wan (Kom Tsun Street));
  • NWFB Route No. 790 (Oscar by the Sea - Tsim Sha Tsui East (Mody Road)); and
  • NWFB Route No. 795 (Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate - Hoi Tat Estate (Sham Mong Road)).

     The bus stops at Lam Tin Interchange and Wan O Road will also commence operation on the same date.

     Passengers may browse the TD's website (www.td.gov.hk/en/transport_in_hong_kong/tunnels_and_bridges_n/tkoltt/index.html) or bus operators' websites and mobile applications for information about the service areas, operating hours and bus stop locations of these routes in order to plan their journeys in advance. The TD has also reminded bus companies to closely monitor the operations of these routes on the first day, and arrange spare buses to meet passenger demand.
