After years of development, the road and railway network in Hong Kong has taken on a significant scale to facilitate commuting by members of the public.

The Highways Department is responsible for the expansion and enhancement of Hong Kong's public road network, undertaking the planning, design and management of road projects so as to meet public transport demand. We take up the duties of repair and maintenance of public road facilities to ensure that they are in safe and serviceable condition. In addition, under the policy of developing a public transport-oriented system with railway as the backbone, we are responsible for reviewing Hong Kong's Railway Development Strategy and supervising the implementation of new railway projects. 

In the course of pressing ahead the implementation of various transport infrastructure projects, the Highways Department is committed to improve the living quality of the community as well. When planning road projects, we strive to integrate more greening elements to beautify the community's streetscape. We also add lifts and covers to pedestrian walkways to enhance the walking environment; and build noise barriers for roads to reduce traffic noise nuisance.

Looking forward, the Highways Department will continue to working closely with our industry partners carrying the spirit of professionalism, actively encouraging innovation and applying technology to provide better services to the public, while upholding the principles of sustainable development.
