I wrote in My Blog last Sunday that the promenade between Shek Tong Tsui and the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) had been opened to the public, and it is the longest promenade of the Victoria Harbour so far.

The “living seawalls” (8/12/2019)

I introduced the latest progress of near-shore reclamation of the Tung Chung New Town Extension in My Blog some time earlier, and mentioned that the project adopted eco-shorelines for the first time in the extension area with an objective to further conserve the ecological habitats and enhance biodiversity. The Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) is working in partnership with The University of Hong Kong (HKU) to conduct a feasibility study by introducing eco-shoreline features at the seawalls in Sai Kung, Lung Kwu Tan in Tuen Mun and Ma Liu Shui in Sha Tin for field trials. This time, I have invited a colleague from the CEDD and a professor from the School of Biological Sciences at HKU to introduce the details and initial findings of the study......

This time, I have invited two colleagues from the ArchSD to introduce the architectural design and features of the facility to facilitate our understanding of the design concepts of the project team......
