Notice is hereby given that the following temporary traffic and transport arrangements will be implemented from 10.00 am on 8 May 2017 to 9.59 am on 17 May 2017 to facilitate the tram track renewal works in Western District:


(a)          Road Closure

The section of Davis Street southbound between Catchick Street and Hau Wo Street will be temporarily closed to all vehicular traffic (except trams and vehicles heading to the carpark of the Merton).


(b)          Traffic Diversion

(i)   Hau Wo Street will be temporarily converted as one-way westbound traffic; and


(ii)  Affected vehicles on Catchick Street heading for Hau Wo Street via Davis Street southbound will be diverted via Smithfield southbound.


(c)          Green minibus (GMB) diversion

GMB route 23 (heading for Kennedy Town) will be diverted via Catchick Street eastbound and Smithfield southbound, and resume its original routing.


Appropriate traffic signs and road markings will be erected on site to guide motorists.  The Transport Department anticipates that the traffic in the vicinity of the affected area would be more congested than normal days.  Members of the public are advised to plan their journey early and allow more traveling time to cater for unexpected delay.  Motorists should exercise tolerance and patience in case of traffic congestion, observe the instruction given by the Police, and watch out for the latest traffic news through media.
