Building For Future

To cope with traffic growth, the section of Fanling Highway between Tai Hang and Wo Hop Shek Interchange is being widened from dual three-lane carriageway to dual four-lane carriageway with standard hard shoulders. Works commenced in July 2013 for completion by 2019.

The construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass and Island Eastern Corridor Link (CWB) commenced in end 2009. The CWB is a dual three-lane trunk road of about 4.5km running along the northern shore of Hong Kong Island. It will be an expressway for east-west traffic between Central and North Point relieving the congestion along the existing Connaught Road Central, Harcourt Road and Gloucester Road and coping with the predicted traffic flow in the area. Upon commissioning of the CWB, it will take only about 5 minutes to travel between Central and Island Eastern Corridor in North Point. Linkage between the east of Hong Kong Island and other districts in the western side of the territory will be more direct and the traveling time will be greatly reduced.

The Tuen Mun-Chek Lap Kok Link (TM-CLKL) is a 9 km long dual two-lane highway between Tuen Mun and North Lantau.  It will provide the most direct route between the Northwest New Territories (NWNT) and Lantau, joining the road network at Tuen Mun, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF), the Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) and various North Lantau developments.  Upon completion, the new route will significantly reduce the journey time between the NWNT and Lantau, and will also relieve the traffic condition of the existing road network (viz. Tuen Mun Road, Ting Kau Bridge and Tsing Ma Bridge, etc.).  The advance works of the TM-CLKL commenced in end 2011.  The construction works for TM-CLKL commenced in June 2013.

The proposed Tuen Mun Western Bypass (TMWB) is a dual two-lane highway connecting TM-CLKL and Tsing Tin Road.  The TMWB project is under further review.  Upon completion of the works, TMWB would relieve the traffic condition of the existing road network in Tuen Mun (viz. Tuen Mun Road (Town Centre Section) and Wong Chu Road).

The proposed HZMB will be a new cross-boundary link connecting Hong Kong to the west coast of the Pearl River Delta. The HZMB Main Bridge is a 29.6km dual three-lane carriageway in the form of bridge-cum-tunnel structure comprising an immersed tunnel of about 6.7km. It runs from the artificial island of Zhuhai and Macao Boundary Crossing Facilities to the eastern artificial island for the tunnel section just west of the HKSAR boundary. To build the HZMB Main Bridge, the governments of Guangdong Province, HKSAR and Macao Special Administrative Region will together pay part of the project cost; and the remaining amount will come from bank loan. The preliminary design of the HZMB Main Bridge has been completed in March 2010. Reclamation works for the landing point of the Main Bridge at Zhuhai have commenced in December 2009. Design and build contract for the immersed tube tunnel and artificial islands commenced in late 2010. The three governments will be responsible for the construction and operation of the boundary crossing facilities and the connecting roads to the HZMB within their own respective territories. The Hong Kong Link Road is about 12km, connecting the Main Bridge with the HKBCF at the 130 hectare artificial island to be reclaimed at the waters off the north-east of the HKIA. About 20 structures will be built on the artificial island, including a passenger clearance building, a customs and immigration building, etc. to provide cargo and passenger clearance service.

The Central Kowloon Route (CKR) will link Yau Ma Tei Interchange in West Kowloon with the Kowloon Bay and Kai Tak Development in East Kowloon so as to reduce the traffic volumes along the major east-west corridors, thus relieving the existing traffic congestion problem and coping with future traffic need. Upon commissioning of the CKR, it is estimated that the journey time between Yau Ma Tei and Kowloon Bay during peak hours would take around 5 minutes, saving about 25 minutes in comparison with the journey time without the CKR. The construction of the CKR commenced in end 2017.
