Rao, A. Reddy, B. As such, the congestion problem has been seriously addressed by the government since the early era with numbers of traffic-related policies formulated which aims at alleviating the congestion problem in the whole territory in Hong Kong.
Over the past decades, transport services have been expanded in many aspects so as to cope with the ever-increasing population demand as well as to relieve the congested situation. Relieving traffic congestion measures has always been a heated topic in the policy agenda in the government, as well as within the society. Over the past years, the HKSAR had been drawing a number of traffic-related policies to solve the congested problem especially at those black spots.
Also while working closely with different public transport stakeholders, more diversified regulations or traffic management measures have also been launched. In this dissertation, the traffic congestion problem and the traffic congestion management measures are the main subjects for discussion. On examining the effectiveness of the policies concerned, a Tool-kit approach will be adopted.
Each policy will be addressed under the five policy tools which are used as the basics for reviewing the traffic policies and traffic management measures formulated by the government from the previous decades till the current stage. The effectiveness of those measures will be further evaluated based on the five criteria: Effectiveness; Efficiency; Equity; Manageability; and Political Legitimacy.
The measures appear to be effective, but there seems to be room for further improvement. Apart from the relieving measures to be discussed, there are still numbers of alternative proposals that can help to alleviate the congestion problem in Hong Kong.
