Kwun Tong Road (Chinese: 觀塘道, Pinyin: Guāntáng Dào) is a major road in Kwun Tong of New Kowloon in Hong Kong. It starts at the junction with Prince Edward Road East, Clear Water Bay Road and Lung Cheung Road in Ngau Chi Wan. It runs along the coast of Kwun Tong before reclamation, spans south in Ngau Tau Kok and Kwun Tong, and ends at a junction with Tsui Ping Road, where it is succeeded by Lei Yue Mun Road. Kwun Tong Road is a section of Hong Kong Route 7.
Kwun Tong Road runs through the areas around Kai Yip Estate, Kowloon Bay MTR Station, Lower Ngau Tau Kok Estate, Ting Fu Street, Ngau Tau Kok MTR Station, Millennium City, apm Millennium City 5, the roundabout with Hip Wo Street and Hoi Yuen Road beneath Kwun Tong Station of MTR, and Kwun Tong MTR Station Bus Terminus.
When Kwun Tong station was being built, a road tunnel was dug beneath the station to give a bypass for traffic. Having traffic on the main route diverted into the tunnel, the roundabout functions efficiently. Nevertheless, as road transport in the region becomes saturated, the roundabout still occasionally has traffic congestions.
