Tseung Kwan O-Lam Tin Tunnel completed
The Tseung Kwan O-Lam Tin Tunnel and the Cross Bay Link, Tseung Kwan O will be commissioned on December 11 to improve the transport network and facilitate the commuting public, the Transport & Logistics Bureau announced recently. The tunnel and the Cross Bay Link will serve as a new route between Tseung Kwan O and Kwun Tong as well as the Eastern Harbour Crossing.
     As a new trunk road linking Tseung Kwan O and the urban area, the Tseung Kwan O-Lam Tin Tunnel has a total length of about 3.8km, of which about 2.2km is in the form of a tunnel. It connects the Cross Bay Link and Po Shun Road in the east and the Eastern Harbour Crossing, Cha Kwo Ling Road in Kwun Tong and the Trunk Road T2 under construction in the west, providing an alternative route for the existing Tseung Kwan O Tunnel to help divert traffic to and from Tseung Kwan O.
     The Cross Bay Link will be the first marine viaduct in Hong Kong comprising carriageways, a cycle track and a footway, which links the Tseung Kwan O-Lam Tin Tunnel and Wan Po Road adjacent to LOHAS Park. It is approximately 1.8km in length, about 1km of which is a marine viad
uct. In addition to diverting the traffic at Wan Po Road, the marine viaduct will connect to the cycle track along the Tseung Kwan O waterfront to form a 5km coastal cycling track loop.
