"Stop-and-Go" e-Payment Service at Cross Harbour Tunnel

        Motorists are advised that the "stop-and-go" e-payment system will be provided at the manual toll booths of Cross Harbour Tunnel from 2 a.m. on 3 December 2017 (Sunday).  Motorists will be able to pay tolls by Octopus cards or contactless credit cards (including Visa, Mastercard and UnionPay) issued by local banks, saving time otherwise spent on cash counting and receiving change.

        Two sets of card reader panels will be installed at each manual toll booth to facilitate vehicles of different heights.  The card reader on the left of each panel will accept Octopus card payment and the one on the right will accept contactless credit cards.  Cash payment will still be accepted if motorists cannot pay toll successfully by tapping their cards.

        Cross Harbour Tunnel will be the third tunnel to provide the "stop-and-go" e-payment system.  The TD will introduce the e-payment system in phases at the other government tolled tunnels and roads, and will make separate announcements before the implementation.

        Motorists can call 1823 for enquiries on the operation of "stop-and-go" e-payment system.
