The Trunk Road T2 and the Cha Kwo Ling(CKL) Tunnel form the middle section of Route 6. They connect the Central Kowloon Route(CKR) to the west and the main tunnel of the Tseung Kwan O –Lam Tin Tunnel (TKO-LTT) to the east.
The Route 6 forms part of Hong Kong’s strategic road network and provides an important road link from West Kowloon to Tseung Kwan O (TKO) New Town with intermediate interchanges at Kai Tak and Lam Tin. The Route 6 plays a strategic transport role by providing the essential highway infrastructure to support new development projects, including the West Kowloon Cultural District and the West Kowloon Station of the Hong Kong Section of the Guangzhou – Shenzhen – Hong Kong Express Rail Link; the Cruise Terminal, the Kai Tak Development (KTD) and the Kowloon East Central Business District; and the residential / industrial developments in TKO. Upon commissioning of the Route 6, it is estimated that the journey time during the peak hours between the western entrance/exit of the TKO-LTT, i.e. Lam Tin Interchange, and the eastern entrance/exit of the CKR, i.e. Kai Tak Interchange would be reduced from about 15 minutes to about 3 minutes. The public can have a more convenient express access between Kowloon East and West and amongst the developments along the route.
