HONG KONG, Jan 17 (FAM) – For the long-term development of Northwest New Territories, and to enhance the road network connecting to the airport and cope with the long-term development of Lantau, we will commence a feasibility study on Route 11 as soon as possible.

The Government will construct the Central Kowloon Route, which will link Yau Ma Tei with Kowloon Bay and the Kai Tak Development Area.  Upon commissioning, the journey time between West Kowloon and Kowloon Bay will be reduced from 30 minutes to 5 minutes during rush hours.
