Tsing Sha Highway 

Tsing Sha Highway is a 13-km dual three lane highway connecting Sha Tin, West Kowloon and Tsing Yi.  Tsing Sha Highway together with the existing Lantau Link and North Lantau Highway form the Route 8.

Stage One of Tsing Sha Highway (the section between Cheung Sha Wan and Sha Tin) has been opened to traffic since March 2008.  Stage Two (the section between Tsing Yi and Cheung Sha Wan) has been opened since 20 December 2009.
