Report of the Task Force on Emergency Transport Coordination

In the wake of three traffic incidents in Kowloon, Hong Kong that took place within 5 minutes of each other, and caused serious traffic congestion and delay for tens of thousands of travelers, the Secretary for the Environment, Transport and Works convened a task force to review and make recommendations for the coordination of emergency transportation. The traffic incidents were provoked by inclement weather. The task force recommendations focus on the following: (a) the crisis management mechanism; (b) internal coordination to expedite immediate remedial works; (c) congestion relief measures; and (d) dissemination of information to the public, with a view to facilitating better handling of similar unforeseen emergency situations with substantial traffic impacts in the future. This task force report elaborates on the incidents and the task force recommendations.
