The traffic has been returned to normal after Hong Kong police finished clearing barriers blocking the main street in the commercial district of Causeway Bay on Monday afternoon.

The Hong Kong transportation department announced that the traffic at all protest sites has now returned to normal.

More than 10 people were detained for obstructing the clearance, reported.

Ahead of the operation, which started at around 10:20 am local time, police offered protesters 30 minutes to clear out, urging them to leave immediately from the short stretch of road in Causeway Bay.

The site in Yee Wo Street has been occupied for two and a half months and was the last of the three Occupy camps cleared by police.
