||Traffic and toll revenue growth were affected by:
Impact of lower traffic (usually during the first two weeks of the Chinese New Year (“CNY”)) carried over into Mar 2015. Since CNY came later in 2015 compared with 2016, Mar 2015 was still within the low traffic period, which resulted in a low base and thus distorted the year-on-year growth in Mar 2016.
