Tai Lam Tunnel (Chinese: 大欖隧道), running along Tsing Long Highway, is part of Route 3 Country Park Section (R3CPS) and is a transport link between Kowloon and the Northwest New Territories.
Tai Lam Tunnel was constructed to ease traffic congestion at Tuen Mun Road and Castle Peak Road, and to link traffic directly from New Territories to urban areas of Kowloon, the Hong Kong International Airport and the Kwai Tsing Container Terminals. Located adjacent to the boundary crossings of Lok Ma Chau and Shenzhen Bay, it connects smoothly with Shenzhen and Guangzhou for serving both cross-boundary passenger services and cargo logistics.
