Study on congestion, cross-harbour tolls
The government will commission a consultancy study this month to study how the issues of congestion and different tolls at the three cross-harbour tunnels can be addressed.
The chief executive said simply adjusting the tolls of the three crossings would not solve the congestion problem; good road links to the crossings, including the delayed Central-Wan Chai bypass project, were also crucial, he said.
'The government appreciates the public's concern,' Donald Tsang Yam-kuen said in his policy address. 'We will endeavour to find a long-term solution that is feasible in transport, financial and legal terms, and develop strategies for possible negotiations in the future.
