Cross Bay Link, Tseung Kwan O
Brief Description of Project Scope:
Cross Bay Link (CBL) will connect Tseung Kwan O – Lam Tin Tunnel (TKO – LTT) to Wan Po Road in Area 86 of Tseung Kwan O (TKO) to provide an alternative access route to the south-eastern part of TKO, so as to cope with the anticipated traffic demand in TKO. Upon completion of CBL, 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 TKO – LTT, 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 minimizing the traffic and environmental impacts on residents in the vicinity.
The project includes an about 1.8 kilometres long dual two-lane carriageway with cycle track and footpath across Junk Bay mainly on viaduct. The works including construction of necessary connecting road and implementation of associated traffic control and surveillance system, drainage, waterworks, marine, landscaping, electrical and mechanical and ancillary works.
