There are no plans for toll increases at the Eastern Harbour Tunnel and the Western Harbour Tunnel, a shareholder of the two privately owned tunnels said. Larry Yung Chi-kin, chairman of Citic Pacific, which owns the eastern tunnel and a 35 per cent stake in the western tunnel, said there was no rise on the company's agenda. Expensive tolls at the two harbour crossings have been blamed for congestion at the Cross-Harbour Tunnel.
