Junction

Traffic nightmare

I meant to write this letter months ago, but thought the problems I will describe might have been solved.

I am referring to the terrible traffic congestion during peak hours at the T-junction of Man Po and Man Yiu streets in Central.

Report bad drivers

I refer to the letter headlined 'Put police cameras at road intersections' (South China Morning Post, March 13).

Your correspondent called for cameras that could identify vehicles straddling pedestrian traffic lights when there was a green light allowing people to cross.

Traffic chaos

The new traffic lights which have been installed at the junction of Chung Hom Kok Road and Stanley Gap Road are causing huge traffic jams and they do not appear to be smoothing the traffic flow.

Saturated

I refer to the letter headlined, 'Police being irresponsible' (South China Morning Post, August 6). Police have authority to take over control of traffic signal-controlled junctions.

This is usually done as a last resort and by either manual override or by completely switching off the lights.

Department to remove traffic lights

I REFER to the letter headlined, ''Traffic lights so unnecessary'' (South China Morning Post, March 10) querying the need for traffic signals at the junction of Borrett Road and Kennedy Road.

These signals were intended to allow vehicles to turn left into Borrett Road from westbound Kennedy Road more easily.
