Very expensive to do so, even for a small place like that - signs need turning around/redoing, lots of re-painting lines needed, modifications to interchanges (merges are now diverges and vice versa).

Also more people drive cars in Hong Kong than elsewhere in China, and most of the rest of that part of the world (Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand - basically anything that wasn't Chinese, American or French at some point!) drives on the left anyway. Hong Kong also likes it's distinctions, and will push to stay drive-on-left against mainland China.
