Transport infrastructure

Measuring 4.2 kilometres, the Tseung Kwan O-lam Tin Tunnel is a two-lane dual carriageway linking Tseung Kwan O and Kowloon East, due for completion in 2021. It will shorten the journey between Tseung Kwan O town centre and the Eastern Harbour Tunnel by 10 minutes, to a total of five minutes travel time. Meanwhile, the 1.8-kilometre-long Cross Bay Link connecting Lohas Park and the Tseung Kwan O-lam Tin Tunnel, a dual two-lane bridge with separate walkways and bike lane, is expected to finish construction in 2022 at the earliest.

Air pollution

The South East New Territories Landfill, currently located in Tseung Kwan O, handles considerably more garbage than other landfills in Hong Kong. On days when there’s a southeast wind, the odour from the landfill will be carried to the areas in and surrounding Tseung Kwan O and Tiu Keng Leng. Vehicles carrying construction waste and stones further exacerbate the district’s pollution problem.

School net

Tseung Kwan O’s primary school net is No.95, which includes Tseung Kwan O Catholic Primary School, Christian and Missionary Alliance Sun Kei Primary School and Saint Andrew's Catholic Primary School. Its secondary school net belongs to the Sai Kung District, which comprises of T.W.G.HS Lui Yun Choy Memorial College, Carmel Divine Grace Foundation Secondary School and Tseung Kwan O Government Secondary School. Nearby international schools include Clearwater Bay School, Hong Kong Academy, Shrewsbury International School Hong Kong and the new Tseung Kwan O campus of the French International School.
