Works will be carried out in phases in the vicinity of the Lantau Toll Plaza on December 26 as the tolls of the Lantau Link will be waived from midnight on December 27, the Transport Department said today.

From 9pm on December 26, some traffic lanes will be closed for removing tolling facilities such as toll booths and modification of traffic signs and road markings.

During this period, temporary traffic lanes will be set up in the Lantau Toll Plaza vicinity and the existing speed limit of 50km per hour will be maintained.

Appropriate traffic signs and road markings will be set up on-site to guide motorists. 

From midnight on December 27, motorists can drive through the Lantau Toll Plaza without stopping and paying tolls.

The department advised affected motorists to pay attention to the on-site situation and drive with utmost care and patience.

After the implementation of the toll waiver, road works will continue to be carried out in the Lantau Toll Plaza vicinity including canopy removal and road resurfacing.

Temporary traffic measures will be adjusted in phases in accordance with the required works areas and adequate traffic lanes will be reserved for vehicles to drive through the toll plaza vicinity.

In addition, as vehicles going to and from Ma Wan are still subject to restriction via prohibited zone permit, the kiosks and gates at the Ma Wan Toll Plaza will be retained for permit checking purposes after implementation of the toll waiver.

Motorists still need to stop at the Ma Wan Toll Plaza gate for checking when entering Ma Wan and can drive directly through when leaving.

The Tuen Mun-Chek Lap Kok Link Northern Connection will open to traffic in the morning on December 27 and the tolls of the Lantau Link will be waived from midnight on the same day.
