Public Consultation

Public Consultation

Highways Department conducted a series of public consultation exercises for the proposed Pound Lane escalator project between 4 July to 3 September 2013. These included:

  • 25 focus group meetings with members of Central & Western District Council, schools & institutions, concern groups, local organisations and local residents.
  • 4 roving exhibitions at Sai Ying Pun Community Complex, Western District Community Centre, Sheung Wan MTR Station and Po Hing Fong Blake Garden Basketball Court.

 

Throughout the two-month public consultation, we received about 5,000 public views. In summary, both supporting and opposing views to the project are of considerable amounts and of similar order. The concerns of the public are mainly on the project need, usage volume, consideration of alternative alignment, environmental and heritage preservation, community impact and cost.

We are arranging a public forum to introduce the preliminary refined scheme of the project, enable the public to present their views on the preliminary refined scheme, and encourage discussions on the way forward for the project.

Details are as follows:

Date : 30 April 2015 (Thu)

Time : 7:30pm to 9:30pm

Venue : Sai Ying Pun Community Complex Community Hall, 2 High Street, Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong
