MORE police will be ready to ease traffic around Kwai Chung as container lorries rush to the terminals to meet deadlines before the four-day Easter holiday starting tomorrow. Container truck drivers estimated 3,000 more lorries would today use the terminals in addition to the daily 16,000 vehicles. 'The terminals will be crammed with lorries for at least 12 hours after 8 am,' said chairman of the Container Transportation Employees' General Union Tse Long. 'We need to sort out all the goods before the holiday,' he said. Mr Tse said congestion at the terminals had eased in the past two years as drivers got used to the traffic pattern before public holidays. 'There shouldn't be any problems unless there are traffic accidents. Should that happen, traffic will be chaotic,' he said. Mr Tse said the Government had not issued any warnings to drivers but usually more police would monitor the situation. A police spokesman said more manpower would be deployed to the site if necessary. 'The traffic isn't expected to be as busy as before the Lunar New Year holidays, but more manpower will be ready for emergencies,' said the spokesman. Johnny Cheung Kong-chung, terminal services manager with Hongkong International Terminals, said the organisation would be in close communication with police over any traffic contingency plans. Mr Cheung said some Chinese firms would still be operating over the Easter holiday and therefore he did not anticipate a sharp rise in demand for facilities.
