New tolling service website launched

The Transport Department today launched the free-flow tolling service website to enhance public understanding of the service and toll tags.   The new service is expected to be rolled out at government tolled tunnels and the Tsing Sha Control Area. Drivers can pay tunnel tolls with ease via remote means using toll tags without stopping or queueing at toll booths.   Such arrangements will make driving smoother and help improve traffic conditions near the tunnels.   The existing toll booths at toll plazas will be demolished to free up space for other traffic-related purposes, such as enhancing existing bus stops.   The new website introduces the details and provides updates of the service.   Additionally, the department is carrying out a public engagement exercise, including meetings with different stakeholders and exhibitions to be held shortly.
