Project Description: The Road T3 forms part of the continuing programme for the development of the Sha Tin New Town. The project consists of the construction of about 2 kilometres of dual 2-lanes elevated roadway connecting the existing Tai Po Road (Sha Tin Heights section) and Route 8 (Cheung Sha Wan to Sha Tin) to the existing Tai Po Road (Sha Tin section). It also includes the construction of about 150 metres of underpass, about 6.4 kilometres of noise barriers and enclosures, and footbridges and subways to improve pedestrian and cycle traffic in Sha Tin and Tai Wai areas. Also, it helps to relieve the present traffic congestion at Sha Tin Section and Tai Wai Section of the Tai Po Road.

To minimise the impact of Road T3 to the local residents and traffic in Sha Tin and Tai Wai during construction, most of the bridges in this project are constructed by precast segmental construction method, which occupies minimal working space at ground level and creates minimal environmental impact and disturbance to traffic. Moreover, in order to reduce the construction activities over KCRC tracks and the potential risk to KCRC operations, the contractor adopted a deck launching construction method for the construction of the footbridge over KCRC tracks. With this technique, the complete footbridge deck was launched over KCRC tracks progressively in several nights.

To ensure the project is environmental friendly, we have been implementing environmental measures to fulfill the conditions of the Environmental Permit for the project.

Part of the Road T3 southbound viaduct between Tai Wai (Shing Wan Road) and Tai Po Road (near Sha Tin Height) was opened to the public on 24 November 2005.
