TAC Chairman welcomes Hong Kong Major Transport Infrastructure Development Blueprint
The following is issued on behalf of the Transport Advisory Committee:

     The Chairman of the Transport Advisory Committee (TAC), Professor Stephen Cheung, welcomed the Hong Kong Major Transport Infrastructure Development Blueprint promulgated today (December 12), which outlines a forward-looking vision for strategic railway and major road networks up to 2046 and beyond.

     Professor Cheung said, "After an in-depth study and an extensive consultation by the Government covering the views of the TAC, this Blueprint aims to 'Drive Development', 'Strengthen Connection' and 'Improve Efficiency'. It has formulated and outlined a forward-looking framework for the city’s future transport infrastructure, including an enhanced proposal on the Three Railways and Three Major Roads, and new projects on the two railways and one major road. I welcome the Government's effort to continuously optimise the railway and major road networks, catering for the commuting demands of the public and visitors as well as the development needs of the city. The Blueprint provides a transport foundation for the Northern Metropolis and promotes better integration with other cities in the Guangdong–Hong Kong–Macao Greater Bay Area. The Blueprint also recommends the implementation of smart and green mass transit systems in East Kowloon, Kai Tak and Hung Shui Kiu/Ha Tsuen New Development Area. It fully adopts the planning principles of 'infrastructure-led' and 'capacity-creating' for unleashing the development potential along the alignment of transport infrastructure."

     "The TAC will, as always, continue to earnestly offer views on various traffic and transport policies and measures to the Government for building and enhancing our transportation system as well as proactively taking forward smart mobility, with a view to promoting and consolidating Hong Kong's status as an international metropolis and a regional logistics hub."
