HK Electric hope to finish stage 1 works by Q1 of 2023 and to finish the entire programme by 2024 (tentatively).
[12 Jan 2022]
To follow up on an earlier report (link), we met with HK Electric engineers to learn about their programme to enhance power supply to the Pok Fu Lam area. The related road works are divided into various sections (link). They expect to finish the Sassoon Road section in February 2022.
Improvement works have begun at the top of Sassoon Road. It involves re-alligning the island which would add a short flare lane, click here for the drawing. This scheme is approved by the Transport Department in relation to the potential increase in traffic arising from the Cyberport Expansion project and HKU Med's new building east of 3 Sassoon Road.
School traffic in Pokfulam 薄扶林的學校交通
We received many complaints from road users and public transport passengers over the school traffic in Pokfulam. With international schools resuming classes the commuting time during school peak hours has gone up by 15 minutes or more. Bus and minibus services suffer lost trips as they are stuck on the road.
We have written to the Education Bureau, Planning Department, Transport Department asking them:
We have received requests from parents of West Island School for adequate shelters at the bus stops at Victoria Road. To assist, we created an online petition campaign where over 440 students/parents have signed. Transport Department is now reviewing the case.
At least three traffic accidents at the junction of Cyberport Road and Sha Wan Drive have been reported in the last three months by residents.

We are asking the Transport Department for improvements measures. Feel free to share your views and experience at this junction: email@example.com

School traffic is back 學校交通
Schools are back and the rainy season is here. This at the same time as people returning to normal work schedules. The result is increased congestion and slower traffic. With increased risk of delays with minibus and bus services stuck in traffic, residents are urged to leave earlier than they were used. The situation will likely remain so until the international schools finish their school term mid-June onwards.
