in the middle of the road

Hong Kong's transportation network is highly developed. Highways in Hong Kong use two types of barrier system for divided highways. Older roads use metal guard rails and newer roads use the British Concrete step barrier.

All signage on highways and roads in Hong Kong are bilingual (traditional Chinese below and English above). Street signs use black text on a white background. Highway and directional signage are white lettering on blue or green background.

 

香港道路網絡是世界上道路交通密度最高的地區之一,覆蓋了全港大部份地區,使駕駛者能輕易到達目的地。香港街道的名稱千奇百怪,有些以英國殖民地時期香港總督的名字譯音命名,有些則以該區的特色設計名稱;街道名字或多或少反映了時代變遷和市民的生活習慣。

 

Hong Kong • 香港 ‘11
