Tsing Yi North Coastal Road (Chinese: 青衣北岸公路; pinyin: Qīngyī Běi'àn Gōnglù; Cantonese Yale: ching1 yi1 bak1 ngon6 gung1 lou6) is a road on the north coast of Tsing Yi Island, Hong Kong, from Tam Kon Shan to Ngau Kok Wan, connecting the Tsing Yi North Bridge, Ting Kau Bridge and the Tsing Ma Bridge. The road was built to shorten the traffic distance between the Lantau Link and Tsuen Wan.
The road was inaugurated by Donald Tsang on February 1, 2002 and opened to public on February 2, 2002. The entire length of the road is an elevated structure spanning 2.2 kilometres (1.4 mi). The construction of the dual two-lane road began in February 1999. Apart from the main road, it also includes four viaducts, four slip/link roads, four subways, a traffic control centre, noise semi-enclosure/barrier, and extensive geotechnical and landscaping works.
The total cost of construction of this highway was HK$775 million.
