In order to set out a transport strategy to keep Hong Kong moving into the next century, the Second Comprehensive Transport Study was undertaken in 1986-1989 to project the growth in transport demand up to 2001, and to appraise the transport infrastructure and policy proposals for dealing with the various problems that will confront us over this period. The proposed transport strategy has three major components, namely, (1) improving the transport infrastructure, (2) expanding and improving public transport, and (3) managing the road use. The objectives and the recommended measures under each of these headings are summarised in this paper. The likely impact of the replacement airport, at Chek Lap Kok (planned to be opened in early 1997), on the future transport strategy is also discussed. It is based on the findings of the Port and Airport Development Strategy study which has evaluated alternative sites for a new replacement airport, together with the needs for new port facilities.
