The Transport Department (TD) today (December 9) reminded members of the public that to facilitate implementation of the toll waiver at the Tseung Kwan O Tunnel (TKOT), temporary traffic arrangements and road works will be carried out in phases in the vicinity of the TKOT Toll Plaza from 10pm tomorrow (December 10), including closure of some traffic lanes for shutting down tolling facilities such as toll booths and modification of traffic signs and road markings.
The TD anticipates that traffic in the vicinity of the TKOT will be very congested during that period. Members of the public are advised to use public transport or railway services for travelling to/from Kowloon and Tseung Kwan O as far as possible. Motorists should allow sufficient travelling time, consider using alternative routes, exercise tolerance and patience and follow the instructions of on-site staff.
Starting from 0.00am on Sunday (December 11), the toll of the TKOT will be waived and motorists can drive through the original toll plaza without stopping and paying the toll.
