25 August 2019 – Another weekend of protests but this time it started off at Kwai Chung Sports Ground (葵涌運動場) to Tsuen Wan Park (荃灣公園); bowing to pressure from Beijing MTR Corp decided to close down a few underground stations to make it more difficult for protesters to get to the demonstration site. This also happened yesterday to the demonstrations at Kwun Tong.
Congestion at Texaco Road, Tsuen Wan Hong Kong – 7:45pm 25 August 2019
These protests have been started by Carrie Lam the chief executive of Hong Kong who tried to bulldoze through the extradition bill – she has had many opportunities to diffuse the situation but instead has dug herself into the Fuhrer bunker.
Rain was bucketing down and as I walked from Tsuen Wan West to the Texaco Road I saw a convoy of about 15 police vans rushing from Tsuen Wan West station to Yeung Uk Road at about 7:35pm tonight; from the pictures you can see that bricks had been dug up from the pavements.
As I try to get to Texaco Road, I go up a footbridge and the main action is in Yeung Uk Road where a number of police cars are stationed.
On Texaco Road I notice makeshift road blocks had been set up presumably by protesters. Some of the railings had also been taken down.
Many cars tried to get through Texaco Road but instead had to go around.
As I approach the roundabout connecting to Texaco Road, the flyover, Tsing Yi, etc. the traffice is completely blocked up and doesn’t seem to be moving.
For more information about the exact routing and information this news site seems to cover the events quite well.
