Exhibition on slope safety and greening master plans

The Geotechnical Engineering Office of the Civil Engineering and Development Department will stage a four-day exhibition on slope safety and Greening Master Plans at Hing Wah I Shopping Centre in Chai Wan from tomorrow (September 21).

The exhibition will open from 10am to 6pm daily. Through colourful display panels, a video show and an information kiosk, it will convey to visitors the importance of slope safety and proper maintenance and precautionary measures during heavy rain. Information on landslides and landslip warning will be on display.

A geotechnical engineer from the Community Advisory Unit of Geotechnical Engineering Office will meet the public on site from 2pm to 5pm on Saturday (September 23) to answer questions on slope safety and slope maintenance. Quiz games will be held at the same time to help people understand more about slope safety and greening.

The exhibition will also highlight the department's work in the development and implementation of Greening Master Plans in several urban areas.  Photographs of the recently completed pilot greening schemes in Tsim Sha Tsui will be displayed to illustrate the improved streetscape.  Short-term greening work being carried out in Tsim Sha Tsui and Central will also be presented.

People who have questions about slope safety and slope maintenance can call the Citizen's Easy Link 1823. They are also welcome to browse the Hong Kong Slope Safety website at http://hkss.cedd.gov.hk for slope safety information.
