Discovery Bay Tunnel

Discovery Bay Tunnel (DB Tunnel), Siu Ho Wan entrance on 16 April 2000 on the day of the DB Tunnel "Journey of Hope" charity walk, prior to its opening.

The Discovery Bay Tunnel (traditional Chinese: 愉景灣隧道; simplified Chinese: 愉景湾隧道; pinyin: Yújǐngwān Suìdào; Cantonese Yale: yu4 ging2 waan1 seui6 dou6) is a toll tunnel that links Discovery Bay Road at Yi Pak Au to Cheung Tung Road at Siu Ho Wan beside the North Lantau Highway. It was built for the Discovery Bay residential development on the north-eastern coast of Lantau Island, Hong Kong.

It is open 24 hours everyday to vehicles approved by the Transport Department; including residents' coaches, goods vehicles for goods delivery and servicing functions, and Hong Kong Government vehicles are allowed to use the tunnel. The toll charge ranges between HK$ 50.00 to 250.00 depending on the type of vehicle.

As the development is car-free, private vehicles are discouraged from entering. Private cars or private delivery vans can only enter with special permits issued in advance, between the hours of 09:00 and 18:00 every day.

The tunnel is managed by HKR International Limited.
