    We Need CBL

    We need Cross Bay Link


    With the further increase in population in Tseung Kwan O (TKO), traffic congestion is anticipated within the TKO town centre and along Wan Po Road during peak hours. We need to construct Cross Bay Link, Tseung Kwan O to relieve the traffic congestion within the TKO town centre and along Wan Po Road.


    TKO is one of the latest generations of new town developments in Hong Kong and currently accommodates a population of about 400 000. With the further population intake at TKO town centre south and south-eastern part of TKO, traffic demand will grow accordingly.


    To relieve the traffic congestion at TKO Tunnel which is the only main road connection between TKO and Kowloon East, we are constructing Tseung Kwan O – Lam Tin Tunnel for completion in 2021. However, with the further increase in population, even with Tseung Kwan O – Lam Tin Tunnel in place, traffic congestion is anticipated within TKO town centre and along Wan Po Road during peak hours.


    At present, Wan Po Road is the only road linking the south-eastern part of TKO to other areas. This project will provide an alternative access route to the south-eastern part of TKO, thereby enhancing the road network of the area. Upon completion of this project, traffic from the south-eastern part of TKO can commute to and from the western part of TKO via CBL, or commute to and from Kowloon East via Tseung Kwan O – Lam Tin Tunnel currently under construction, without travelling through Wan Po Road and TKO town centre. Hence, the traffic load to these roads during peak hours could be relieved, and thereby minimising the traffic and environmental impacts on residents in the vicinity.
