Tai Lam Tunnel – SCADA System
Route 3 Country Park Section was opened to traffic in May 1998 to improve cross-boundary traffic and relieve the road access to northwest New Territories.
Tai Lam Tunnel is part of the Route 3 Country Park Section. Together with Ting Kau Bridge, it takes less than twenty minutes to travel between Yuen Long and Tsing Yi.
Tai Lam Tunnel is a dual three-lane tunnel with about 3.7km long and is used by 40,000 vehicles daily. It greatly eases the heavy traffic in Tuen Mun Road.
VL Automation Limited (VL)’s responsibility on Tai Lam Tunnel’s Central Monitoring and Control System (CMCS) included system configuration, hardware supply, Human Machine Interface and control logic development, testing as well as training.
