Once again Sai Sha Road was closed for an hour yesterday (6 November). Around 3:00 pm a medium goods vehicle collided with another van. Traffic was backed up between O Tau and Sai Keng.

The driver of the van was trapped for some 40 minutes before he was cut free by the fire services, and was taken to hospital.

This is just the latest in a string of accidents on both Sai Sha Road and Hiram’s Highway. Each time, road users to and from Sai Kung are delayed while the problem is cleared. As more road traffic is expected with the massive residential developments in Sai Kung town, so will the delays.

And if bad driving is not bad enough, we now have suicidal estate agents standing in the road outside Mount Pavilia, on Clearwater Bay Road. They are trying to get cars to stop so they can hand out flyers for the development. There have been many complaints in online forums about this, but they still continue. If the rate of accidents continue to increase, then it is only a matter of time before someone gets killed.
