Transport department ‘could have done better’ after new toll system brought chaos to Hong Kong’s road to airport
Traffic ground to standstill for several hours on Tsing Ma Bridge on Monday but Transport Department rejects calls to suspend system, agreeing only to open two more booths during peak hours
August 21, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt








Hong Kong’s transport authority admitted it could have done better after a new toll arrangement for the only road link to the airport descended into chaos on its first day of operation on Monday, causing tailbacks stretching 15km.

But the Transport Department denied the plan was implemented in haste and refused to suspend the arrangement, citing potential danger for motorists.

Two additional toll booths have been installed, but lawmakers remained sceptical whether it would be able to cope with rush-hour traffic.

Traffic came to a standstill early on Monday morning on Tsing Ma Bridge towards Lantau Island, where Hong Kong International Airport is situated.

The gridlocked traffic was at one stage backed up as far as the Tuen Mun Interchange in Siu Lam 15km away, while a separate 15km tail was seen near Kam Tin through the Tai Lam Tunnel.

After nearly four hours, the roads were clear again at around 11am.

For years, tolls for the Lantau Link were only collected on a round-trip basis when motorists leave Lantau, a measure to save time and administrative costs.

That allowed vehicles heading into Lantau to travel unimpeded through three lanes at the toll plaza.

But under the new arrangement implemented on Sunday, Lantau-bound motorists must stop at one of four cash toll booths, or pass through one of two autotoll lanes to pay.

Two additional cash booths were installed on Monday afternoon, with another three ready by the end of the year.

The two-way collection system was brought in to prepare for the commissioning of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge, after which the Lantau Link will no longer be the only road to Lantau.
