Government signed co-operation agreement for eight projects to construct community isolation and treatment facilities
The Development Bureau announced today (February 24) that the Architectural Services Department had signed a co-operation agreement with the China State Construction International Holdings Limited in respect of eight projects for the construction of community isolation and treatment facilities. The eight projects, to be funded by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government, are distributed across the following locations:
The two sites in Fanling and the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities Island of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge are newly identified.
- Penny's Bay
- Former runway area of Kai Tak
- Tam Mi, Yuen Long (private land lent by Sun Hung Kai Properties)
- Former site of The Boxes, San Tin (private land lent by Sun Hung Kai Properties and Henderson Land Development)
- Hung Shui Kiu, near Kai Pak Ling Road
- Tsing Yi Town Lot No. 200
- A site located in Fanling North New Development Area, next to Ma Sik Road, Fanling (private land lent by New World Development)
- A site on the south-eastern part of the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities Island of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, north of Tuen Mun Chek Lap Kok Tunnel Road
The HKSAR Government expresses gratitude to the developers for lending private land for free, including New World Development for lending the new site in Ma Sik Road, Fanling, as well as Sun Hung Kai Properties and Henderson Land Development for lending two sites announced earlier. The sites have been swiftly handed over to the construction teams so that construction works can be kick-started as early as possible.
The HKSAR Government expresses once again its gratitude to the Central Government for the tremendous support, the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in the HKSAR for the intensive co-ordinating efforts, as well as the construction teams which have been working in full steam on the projects. The HKSAR Government and the construction teams are taking forward the construction projects in full speed and communicating closely on the detailed design and scale of the projects. The target is to maximise the site utilisation and complete the relevant works as soon as possible, equipping Hong Kong for the fight against the epidemic.
