Our Services

The Highways Department (HyD) is responsible for the maintenance of public roads and associated facilities, e.g. roadside slopes/retaining walls, highway structures, public lighting facilities and street furniture etc., under its purview, and is responsible for the maintenance of vegetation on HyD's slopes and within the expressway boundary.

Apart from ensuring serviceability of highway facilities and safeguarding the safety of road users through regular inspections for the timely arrangement of appropriate maintenance works, we also strive for enhancing the qualities of road pavement and facilities through continual improvement work, while at the same time enhancing the streetscape of our community through greening, design and selection of paving patterns and street furniture commensurate with the environment, adoption of aesthetic highway structure design, etc.

In addition, HyD coordinates and controls excavations on public roads through issuing Excavation Permits under the provisions of the Land (Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance.
