Project Objective :
Tuen Mun Road, which forms part of Route 9, is the major link between Tuen Mun and Kowloon. This will be particularly so upon the commissioning of the Hong Kong - Shenzhen Western Corridor / Deep Bay Link in 2007. It has been in service for more than twenty five years and is now in a condition beyond economical repair. Reconstructing the road will minimize repair works, hence disturbance to road users. In addition, the road was designed and constructed in the mid-seventies. There is a need to bring the road up to the current standards as far as practicable.

Construction Commencement Date :

30 Oct 2008

2014 (Anticipated)

Approved Project Cost (HK$Million):
4620
