The Trunk Road T2 and the Cha Kwo Ling (CKL) Tunnel form the middle section of Route 6. They connect the Central Kowloon Route (CKR) to the west and the main tunnel of the Tseung Kwan O –Lam Tin Tunnel (TKO-LTT) to the east. Traffic Control and Surveillance System will be installed inside Trunk Road T2 for this contract.
The scope of works include design, supply, delivery, installation, testing and commissioning of the traffic control and surveillance system (TCSS) for the Trunk Road T2 and associated works, and integration of Trunk Road T2 TCSS with the central system of TKO-LTT TCSS.
The Route 6 forms part of Hong Kong’s strategic road network and provides an important road link from West Kowloon to Tseung Kwan O (TKO) New Town with intermediate interchanges at Kai Tak and Lam Tin. The Route 6 plays a strategic transport role by providing the essential highway infrastructure to support new development projects, including the West Kowloon Cultural District and the West Kowloon Station of the Hong Kong Section of the Guangzhou – Shenzhen – Hong Kong Express Rail Link; the Cruise Terminal, the Kai Tak Development (KTD) and the Kowloon East Central Business District; and the residential / industrial developments in TKO. Upon commissioning of the Route 6, it is estimated that the journey time during the peak hours between the western entrance/exit of the TKO-LTT, i.e. Lam Tin Interchange, and the eastern entrance/exit of the CKR, i.e. Kai Tak Interchange would be reduced from about 15 minutes to about 3 minutes. The public can have a more convenient express access between Kowloon East and West and amongst the developments along the route.
The TCSS shall facilitate the future tunnel operator to monitor and control traffic within the tunnel area associated with Trunk Road T2 and its approach roads. The T2 TCSS shall install with TCSS field equipment along with its communication backbone, and then connect them to the Central System and Single User Interface (SUI) provided under the TCSS contract of TKO-LTT to form a single fully and operational TCSS to safely operate the combined T2 and TKOLTT tunnels under a single tunnel operator.
