  Tuen Mun Western Bypass
  The Tuen Mun Western Bypass (TMWB) forms part of the strategic road network in the Northwest New Territories (NWNT). It links up Shenzhen Bay Bridge and NWNT including Hung Shui Kiu New Development Area via the Kong Sham Western Highway (KSWH) in the north, and the Tuen Mun – Chek Lap Kok Link (TM-CLKL) in the south. Together with the TM-CLKL currently under construction, it will provide a most direct route between the NWNT and the Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macao Bridge, the Hong Kong International Airport and North Lantau.  
 
  Scope
  The TMWB is a dual two-lane highway of approximately 9 km long connecting the TM-CLKL and KSWH. The alignment is still under investigation. The currently proposed alignment scheme to be studied includes twin tunnels connecting TM-CLKL at Pillar Point and KSWH near San Sang San Tsuen, with intermediate connections to Tsing Tin Road in Tuen Mun North. The project also includes the construction of a toll plaza and associated administration buildings in Pillar Point.

  Current Situation
  We have consulted Tuen Mun District Council, Yuen Long District Council and Ha Tsuen Rural Committee in July and September 2016 on the latest scheme described above. In general, they expressed no objection to our proposal to undertake further study on the TMWB based on the currently proposed alignment scheme as described in the scope above. We shall commence an investigation study and preliminary design for the currently proposed alignment scheme in 2017. The study will include various assessments including environmental, traffic etc., construction cost, implementation and packaging and programme.
