CILTHK Supports Trunk Road T4 and Associated Works

Hong Kong, 26th April 2024 - The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in Hong Kong (CILTHK) attended a briefing presented by the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) on the Trunk Road T4 Road and associated works.

CILTHK acknowledges the significance of the T4 Main Trunk Road and its associated works in connecting the New Territories East with Kowloon and other regions to cope with the anticipated population growth in Ma On Shan and North East New Territories. Without the Trunk Road T4, the v/c ratio during morning peak hours in sections of Tai Po Road (Shatin Section) is anticipated to be increased to 1.04-1.14 in 2030 and it could further be increased to 1.22-1.27 in 2041. That indicates a significant traffic congestion.

With the Truck Road T4, the v/c ratio during morning peak hours in sections of Tai Po Road (Shatin Section) is anticipated to be 0.88-0.94 in 2030. It shows that Trunk Road T4 could effectively alleviate traffic congestion and bring significant improvements to the transportation in Shatin in next decade.

CILTHK understands that the original proposal back in 2006 did not receive support from the District Council at that time, however, this revised proposal that has considered various concerns from the District Council, has already obtained support from the District Council and other stakeholders.

CILTHK is acknowledged that the construction cost of Trunk Road T4 and related projects is comparable to other recent projects, and aware that the CEDD will implement cost control measures through management and contractual means to ensure financial prudence. Moreover, the Trunk Road T4 and associated works hold significant time saving benefits. Based on estimations, the project is expected to achieve time saving benefit in construction cost recovery in approximately 13 years, making it a worthwhile endeavour.

In view of the project that could effectively improve traffic flow, reduce commuting time, and enhance the transport environment in Shatin, CILTHK support the Trunk Road T4 and Associated Works and would like to put forward the following recommendations in relation to the Trunk Road T4 and associated works:

  • Considering that most Hong Kong citizens rely on public transport, CILTHK suggests synchronously planning potential new franchised bus routes to utilise the Trunk Road T4.
  • With the continuous population growth in the eastern and northern parts of the New Territories, the Shatin Bypass will serve as a long-term solution to address traffic issues in the eastern New Territories. The government should start the study of Shatin Bypass as soon as possible.
  • It is also key to ensure the traffic re-distribution between the Trunk Road T4 and Ma On Shan/Sai Kung areas has been addressed, with adequate road capacity provision to cater for the future traffic demand along the Route 2 Tate's Cairn Highway connecting the Trunk Road T4 and Ma On Shan
