The Transport Department (TD) said the bus interchange on Tuen Mun Chek Lap Kok Tunnel Road will open on December 28, following the commissioning of the Tuen Mun-Chek Lap Kok Tunnel on December 27.

Six bus routes, namely A33, A33X, A34, E33, E33P and NA33, will be diverted via the tunnel on December 28 and will stop at the interchange. They will no longer travel through the Lantau Link after the diversion.

Regarding traffic arrangements, motorists can use the new tunnel to travel to and from the Northwest New Territories and North Lantau in addition to the original routes through Tuen Mun Road or Tai Lam Tunnel.

The TD and the Highways Department have installed signage at appropriate locations to guide motorists.

The tunnel’s northern entrance and exit are located at Tuen Mun Area 40, where motorists can use Lung Fu Road and Lung Mun Road to travel to and from various areas in Tuen Mun.

Its southern entrance and exit are located on the artificial island of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) Hong Kong Port. Motorists can use Chek Lap Kok Road to travel to and from the airport and the HZMB Hong Kong Port, or use Shun Long Road to travel to and from Tung Chung and North Lantau Highway.

Noting that traffic at the main road sections of the Tuen Mun area connecting the new tunnel, including Tuen Mun Road Town Centre Section and Wong Chu Road, will sometimes be busy after the tunnel’s opening, the TD suggested that motorists may also access the tunnel via other roads such as Ming Kum Road, Tsing Wun Road and Lung Mun Road.
