On the waters of Hong Kong one can find many vessels carrying dangerous goods through the busy shipping lanes of Victoria Harbour.
Some of the ships are large.
Others are much smaller.
As well as ships transporting goods, there are also bunker barges – vessels that refuel larger ships.
There is a dedicated fleet of vessels operated by Hong Kong’s Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) for the delivery of explosives.
And finally, road vehicles loaded with dangerous goods are not permitted in the road tunnels linking Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, so the Hongkong and Yaumati Ferry Company operates a vehicular ferry service.
It operates two dangerous goods ferry routes: a 12 minute run between North Point on Hong Kong Island and Kwun Tong in Kowloon around ten times a day, and an as-required service to Mui Wo on Lantau Island which takes around 90 minutes one way.
