Tseung Kwan O Tunnel (traditional Chinese: 將軍澳隧道; simplified Chinese: 将军澳隧道; Cantonese Yale: jeung1 gwan1 ou3 seui6 dou6) is a 900-metre tunnel beneath Ma Yau Tong in Hong Kong. The tunnel was opened in 1990.[1] Part of Route 7, it links Sau Mau Ping, Kwun Tong of Kowloon and New Kowloon and the new town of Tseung Kwan O (Junk Bay), Sai Kung in New Territories. It was used by 80,385 vehicles daily in 2011.[2]

The flat toll fee for the tunnel is HK$3.[1]

This tunnel is connected to Tseung Kwan O Road on the Kowloon side along with its toll plaza, and Tseung Kwan O Tunnel Road on the Tseung Kwan O side.

The western entrance/exit of the tunnel is within the borders of Sai Kung District, although the toll plaza straddles across the border of the two districts.

Tseung Kwan O Tunnel is currently managed by Greater Lucky (H.K.) Company Limited.
