Transport Strategy and Policy Objectives

The Government helps to provide a safe, efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly transport system that meets the economic, social and recreational needs of the community, and is capable of supporting sustainable development in Hong Kong. It does this by:

  expanding and improving the transport infrastructure in a timely manner;
improving the quality and coordination of public transport services; and
managing road use to reduce congestion and promote safety.

The Government also ensures these objectives are achieved in an environmentally sustainable manner by seeking and supporting environmental improvement measures in transport-related areas.

It has drawn up long-term transport strategies that ensure a safe, efficient and reliable transport system on the basis of the Third Comprehensive Transport Study. The transport objectives as promulgated in 'Hong Kong Moving Ahead: A Transport Strategy for the Future' include:

  better integration of transport and land use planning;
better use of railways as the backbone of the passenger transport system;
better public transport services and facilities;
better use of advanced technologies in transport management; and
better environmental protection.
