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.
Works have started at the private road connecting Scenic Villas to Victoria Road. The resurfacing works will be carried out section by section (link). The entire programme will be completed in around 6 months. Temporary traffic management schemes will be in place. Visitors may wish to avoid driving down to Scenic Villas during peak hours.
Congestion caused by temporary traffic management schemes at Pok Fu Lam Road and Sassoon Road 薄扶林道及沙宣道交通擠塞 - 臨時交通管制措施
We are receiving an increasing number of complaints from residents and public transport operators over traffic congestion and travel time along Sassoon Road and Pok Fu Lam Road near Belchers. The cause appears to be the temporary traffic schemes operated by the electricity company. We have contacted them and they responded promptly:
At the start of the school terms we meet with schools and conduct site visits to address traffic issues.
The ISF Academy, at Kong Sin Wan Road near Cyberport 1&2, has over 2000 primary and secondary school students and 500 staff. School bus utilisation is about 50%. Traffic is heavy at nearby junctions between 7:40 and 8am; as well as between 3:10 and 3:40pm. Cyberport tenants and carpark users, bus and minibus passengers and operators, get stuck in school traffic. The afternoon peak normally improves somewhat after 30 August 2021 as extended school activities start. The PE teachers of the school work hard to help manage the traffic as best as they can to minimize the congestion time.
Kennedy School, at Sha Wan Drive, is a primary school with 900 students. About 60% of them use the school buses. The lack of laybys near the school means school buses park along the road. Together with the parent cars, the traffic sometimes comes to a stand-still for a short period as is noticeable in complaints we receive from residents, minibus passengers and operators. The school works hard to minimize congestion using traffic wardens. They also remind parents to be considerate and to queue up from the north as the buses do, so that one lane is kept free as much as possible.
We are urging both schools to take a stronger stance on the use of school buses by their students. Your views are welcome via email@example.com
我們已敦促校方在乘搭校巴一事採取更進取的立場。歡迎電郵至 firstname.lastname@example.org 分享你的意見。
The junction of Victoria Road / Sandy Bay Road is one of five pilot schemes for a new Real-time Adaptive Traffic Signal System. The trial started since April 2021. Over time various issues had to be addressed by Siemens Mobility. They attend regularly to fine-tune the system. Transport Department also continues to monitor the system.

Improving crossing at Bel-Air Phase 1&2
Following the accident in December 2020 and subsequent survey, the Transport Department proposes to improve the existing zebra crossing at Cyberport Road near Bel-Air Phase 1 & 2:
To improve traffic flow, the Transport Department has agreed to a trial scheme banning right hand turns along Information Crescent. Plastic cones will be placed on 12 April 2021 when the school resumes after the Easter Break as shown in the pictures and drawings. Upon completion of the 2-week scheme there will be a review. Separately, Transport Department is studying a proposal to relocate the crossing outside Cyberport 2 to minimize conflict with traffic exiting the Cyberport carpark.
