Provision of "stop-and-go" e-payment facilities at Lion Rock Tunnel to begin on March 18

Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      The Transport Department (TD) today (March 9) announced that  "stop-and-go" e-payment facilities will be provided at the manual toll booths of the Lion Rock Tunnel from March 18 (Sunday). Motorists will be able to pay tolls by Octopus or contactless credit cards (including Visa, Mastercard and UnionPay) issued by local banks, saving time otherwise spent on cash counting and receiving change.
     Two sets of card reader panels will be installed at each manual toll booth to serve vehicles of different heights. The card reader on the left of each panel will accept Octopus card payment and the one on the right will accept contactless credit cards. Cash payment will still be accepted if motorists cannot pay the toll successfully by tapping their cards.
     Apart from the Lion Rock Tunnel, the "stop-and-go" e-payment facilities have already been introduced at the Shing Mun Tunnels, the Aberdeen Tunnel, the Cross-Harbour Tunnel, the Lantau Link (Lantau Toll Plaza) and the Tseung Kwan O Tunnel. The TD will introduce the e-payment system in phases at the remaining government tolled tunnels and roads, and will announce the implementation dates later.
     Motorists can call 1823 for enquiries on the operation of the "stop-and-go" e-payment system.
