List of streets and roads in Hong Kong

Here is a "partial" list of expressways, tunnels, bridges, roads, avenues, streets, crescents, squares and bazaars in Hong Kong.

Routes

Hong Kong's Transport Department is responsible for maintenance and control of highways and roadways.

In 2004, a new strategic route marking system was put in place, wtih most existing routes renumbered and exits to key places or to another route also numbered. (For example, a journey from Yau Ma Tei to the airport uses Route 3, taking Exit 5 to join Route 8. It is therefore identified as "3-5-8".) Routes 1 to 3 are cross-harbour north-south routes following the order in which the harbour tunnels were opened. Routes 4, 5, 7 and 8 run east-west, numbered from south to north. Route 9 circumscribes the New Territories. Route 10 runs from western New Territories from Route 9 and bends northward towards and passes the border to Shenzhen.

The new system has caused some confusion to drivers used to relying on destination signs.

Tunnels

Tunnels are a critical part of Hong Kong's transport infrastructure, given its mountainous and island topography. The first tunnel linked Kowloon with the new towns in the New Territories. Then the first cross-harbour tunnel to Hong Kong Island reduced reliance on ferries. Further construction facilitated traffic flow to the south of Hong Kong island and other parts of the New Territories. Later, as usage increased, additional tunnels became necessary in parallel with existing structures.

Bus priority

The Transport Department has designated about 22 km of road length as exclusive "bus lanes", out of approximately 2,000 km of accessible roads.

Monitoring major roads

The traffic CAM online provides nearly real-time road conditions for all the major road users, as well as the authority to monitor the traffic. The live webcast provides the real-time road conditions for concerned party for planning before driving.

There are about 115 closed circuit cameras located on the routes to provide monitoring of traffic flow. Congestion is heaviest in Kowloon and along the northern shore of Hong Kong Island, where most cameras are located.

Here are select locations around Hong Kong:

* Cross Harbour Tunnel Hong Kong exit
* Aberdeen Tunnel Wanchai entrance
* Cross Harbour Tunnel Kowloon entrance
* Kwai Tsing Interchange
* Tsuen Wan End Road
* Tuen Mun End Road
