啟新道開通 連繫啟德新舊區(Chinese only) (20/8/2017)

政府銳意把九龍東發展成為一個商業、康樂和旅遊的新核心商業區。當中,在2007年開始落實推行的啟德發展計劃肩負着重要的角色,推動香港經濟發展,同時協助活化毗鄰舊區,包括九龍城、黃大仙和觀塘一帶。要做好這個重要角色,啟德發展區需要一個既便捷、又安全可靠,以及規劃周全的交通連接網絡。日前,我陪同行政長官林鄭月娥為連接啟德發展區和新蒲崗的新行車道「啟新道」主持通車儀式,標誌啟德發展區與周邊地區的連繫正邁向新的一頁……

改善公共碼頭 便利遊客居民(Chinese only) (13/8/2017)

每逢假日,不少市民都喜歡遠離煩囂,四出郊遊。香港擁有世界知名的地質公園、海岸公園、歷史古蹟、生態旅遊景點等,深受遊人歡迎。不過,這些景點很多都是位處偏遠郊野,沒有道路連接,必須依靠海路到達。政府於今年制訂了「改善碼頭計劃」,首階段包括約10個位於新界及離島的公共碼頭,希望盡快提升其結構安全和改善現有設施,方便市民前往遊覽,同時亦滿足村民和漁民作業的基本需要……

Work together to make Hong Kong an even better place (6/8/2017)

Members of political team of the new Government have gradually assumed office. Since taking office more than a month ago, I have gradually started working on various projects and can truly feel the numerous challenges and enormous responsibilities ahead. During my recent district visits to meet the public, I realised that there is rising public expectation on the Government and we must respond swiftly and accurately to the aspirations of various parties. As described by those outside the Government, the Development Bureau (DEVB) always has to handle a lot of “hot potatoes”, such as land use planning, brownfield site controversies, new town development, reclamation and land formation, works supervision as well as built heritage conservation. Therefore, I have long felt the heat of this hot kitchen whether as the Secretary or a civil servant in my former capacity……

New Engineering Contract New Management Culture (30/7/2017)

To continuously improve citizens’ quality of life, enhance Hong Kong’s long-term competitiveness and promote our economic development, the Government has been implementing a wide range of public works projects in an orderly manner. Along with other places in the world that are striving to enhance the quality and performance of construction projects through continuous improvements to project management, Hong Kong has been developing world-class infrastructures, and in the quest we cannot afford to become content and should reinforce our strengths to maintain the leading edge. The Development Bureau (DEVB) has all along been promoting “collaborative partnership” in the implementation of public works projects, including the adoption of the “New Engineering Contract” (NEC) form to enhance management efficiency and cost effectiveness, thereby introducing a new project management culture in the construction industry. The NEC form has been implemented in public works projects for some time and it has begun to blossom and bear fruit with encouraging results……

Precautionary flood prevention works (23/7/2017)

On the morning of 18 July, Tai Po District recorded an hourly rainfall of 70 to 80 millimetres (i.e. reaching the level of black rainstorm signal) for consecutive two hours, resulting in serious flooding in Ting Kok Village and Tai Mei Tuk Village. After the incidents, a number of departments provided immediate assistance and support to villagers being affected. Few days ago (21 July), I visited the two villages and listened to the requests of villagers and explained to them the relieving works by departments in order to ease their concerns. In the past few days, the Drainage Services Department (DSD), the Buildings Department (BD), the Water Supplies Department and the Tai Po District Office have spared no effort in dealing with the aftermath of the flooding, including urgent repairs to the damaged river sections and removal of boulders and debris washed down from upstream, so as to restore the drainage capacity of the river as soon as possible……
