TSING Yi Island residents were on hand yesterday to watch the first blasting for the new Cheung Ching tunnel. They were briefed by engineers on the work involved and the measures taken to minimise the disturbance to residents. After the blasting, Cheung Ching Estate residents - who will live above the new tunnel - were invited to inspect the work and a vibration monitoring station set up near the site. The new tunnel will form part of Route 3 linking North Lantau and Chek Lap Kok airport to West Kowloon.
