Suspected gas leak brings Central traffic to a crawlLocal | 12 Oct 2018 5:29 pm
A suspected gas leak outside the China Construction Bank Tower in Central has brought traffic across a large part of Hong Kong Island to a virtual halt.
The slow lane of Connaught Road Central between Murray Road and Jackson Road had to be closed, but the police said there was no immediate danger.
The Transport Department said that the traffic tailback stretched some five kilometers, from Central all the way to Quarry Bay Park at one point.
Officials said they didn't know when the road would re-open and drivers from Kowloon were urged to use the Western Harbour Crossing to go to Central.-RTHK
