Project Overview | Project Benefits | Project Progress | Main Considerations | Preliminary Design Layout | Events|
Existing Castle Peak Road – Castle Peak Bay section (from Kwun Tsing Road to Hoi Wing Road) is the main road connecting So Kwun Wat, Hong Kong Gold Coast, Cafeteria Bay, Castle Peak Bay and Sam Shing Hui. The objective of the project is to improve the traffic condition, provision of additional lanes to cater for Tuen Mun East development and future traffic growth of the road section. In addition, road safety will be strengthened via the project.
Scope of Project
The scope of the Project involves widening of about 1.9km long Castle Peak Road from Kwun Tsing Road (adjacent to Hong Kong Gold Coast Phase 1) to Hoi Wing Road. The proposed works comprise of the following:
(i) widening of the existing road to 7.3m wide dual two-lane carriageway (i.e two lanes in each of the Tuen Mun and Tsuen Wan directions) and associated junctions improvement works;
(ii) provision of noise mitigation measures (i.e. noise barriers/ noise enclosures);
(iii) modification of an existing footbridge near Sam Shing Estate and construction of associated lifts; and
(iv) associated drainage and traffic aids works.
The proposed road widening works will be carried out along the side of the existing Castle Peak Road – Castle Peak Bay. By making use of the available areas, no resumption of private land will be required for the Project. The monument rock situated at the Ki Lun Kong Public Park will be maintained at the present position, and imposes restriction to the road widening works adjacent to Sam Shing Estate.
