Preliminary Outline Development Plan (PODP)

 

Vehicular and Public Transport Connectivity

This is a plan showing the proposed vehicular and public transport connectivity.

Road Improvement

Preliminary assessment indicates that the proposed population of about 80,200 could be accommodated within the existing strategic roads, with local road and public transport improvements. In addition to improvements of existing roads within the PDAs, a new main road running north-south is proposed. The road network will provide vehicular connection with the proposed Hung Shui Kiu NDA via Tin Shui Wai West Interchange and with Yuen Long New Town via Tong Yan San Tsuen Interchange.

A road system is also proposed for quick and convenient access of freight traffic from the Employment Belt to the highway without travelling through the residential neighbourhood.

Public Transport Proposal

Various public transport services are proposed to bring people of Yuen Long South to Yuen Long New Town and the proposed Hung Shui Kiu NDA. They include minibuses to the Light Rail Stations, shuttle or feeder bus services to Tin Shui Wai and Yuen Long West Rail Stations, as well as long haul public bus services to urban and northern New Territories. The use of environmentally friendly transport system (EFTS) for connecting with the proposed Hung Shui Kiu NDA, such as modern tram or electric bus, will also be investigated to strengthen the feeder service to the NDA.
