Dialogue Highlights

Smart Transportation in Hong Kong – where are we on Smart City Planning, Technologies & Urban Infrastructure, Smart Travel Behavior and Smart Sensing and Computing?

Rationalisation of Traffic Distribution among Three Road Harbour Crossings – Announcing the scrapping of the motion debate scheduled for 23 Jan 19, Secretary for Transport and Housing Frank Chan Fan admitted the government had failed to get enough support. What’s the new proposal?

The toll plan was intended to ease congestion by raising fees at the publicly operated Cross-Harbour Tunnel and Eastern Harbour Tunnel while lowering them for the privately run Western Harbour Tunnel, which is currently underused because of its higher charges.
