East Coast Park to open

The East Coast Park Precinct Phase 1, located at the harbourfront in Fortress Hill on Hong Kong Island, will be officially opened on September 25.   Phase 1 of the precinct, with an area of about 9,800 sq m, is located to the west of Watson Road. It was previously a works area for the Central-Wan Chai Bypass (CWB) project.   In accordance with the principle of developing the harbourfront in an incremental approach, the Highways Department advanced the release of part of the site for public use even though the remaining works of the adjacent CWB project were still under way.   The precinct is also one of the 13 works projects under the $6.5 billion dedicated funding for harbourfront enhancement.   Secretary for Development Michael Wong said at the precinct opening ceremony that he was glad to witness another promenade site opened under the incremental approach.   The precinct provides a new promenade section of about 360m alongside Victoria Harbour for the public.   The entrance to the precinct is underneath the CWB flyover. Adopting the design concept of windows, the architect infused window frames of different sizes into the design of balustrades, outdoor installations and a low kerb, offering a distinctive scene for visitors as if it is being viewed through a window.   A lawn area, benches, shelters and more are also provided for public use. In addition, there is an area for children to play with painting on the ground for riders of balance bikes. The architect has also introduced slides and safety floor mats at part of the sloping seawall above the sea level in the precinct, utilising the special characteristics of the site.   The precinct is also a pet-friendly site where pet owners and their pets on leashes are welcome to visit. It will be open to the public around the clock.   One major feature of the precinct is that it provides the first breakwater officially open to the public within the harbour.   The breakwater is approximately 100m in length, allowing members of the public to enjoy the stunning shoreline of Hong Kong from a new angle at the inner harbour.   Visitors can also take in a nearly 360-degree panoramic view of the harbour from the end of the breakwater. The CWB East Vent Shaft above the breakwater was designed specifically to be in harmony with the harbour vista and was the winning entry of an exterior design competition.   In addition, the first large-scale word art installation designed under the theme of the harbour is also being exhibited in the precinct.   People can reach the precinct from MTR Fortress Hill Station by walking along Oil Street and Electric Road, and then going to the end of Watson Road, taking about seven minutes.   Design work for the remaining part of the precinct has already commenced, and the aim is for the project to be opened to the public in phases from 2024 in tandem with the boardwalk underneath the Island Eastern Corridor project.

Railway settlement exceeds limit

The construction works of a relocation project in Kowloon have been suspended after a settlement monitoring checkpoint exceeded the limit, the Government said today.   The project relocates supporting operational facilities of Tsim Sha Tsui Fire Station Complex, Fire Services Club and other fire services accommodations to To Wah Road in Kowloon.   The Government explained that the readings recorded in a settlement monitoring checkpoint installed inside the railway tunnel between Kowloon Station and Olympic Station of the MTR Tung Chung Line had reached 20.27mm on September 7. The preset trigger level for works suspension is 20mm.   For the sake of prudence, the Mass Transit Railway Corporation suspended relevant works within the railway protection area on the same day.   The Buildings Department and the Architectural Services Department deployed staff to inspect the affected railway tunnel and confirmed that it is structurally safe.   The Electrical & Mechanical Services
