     The work is scheduled to begin in September, 2008, for completion by August, 2012.

     A notice describing the extent of the area affected is published in the Government Gazette today (June 8).

     The notice together with a related plan can be seen on notice boards posted near the site. The plan can also be inspected at the Lands Department's Survey and Mapping Office, 23rd Floor, North Point Government Offices; the Yau Tsim Mong District Office, Public Enquiry Service Centre, Ground Floor, Mong Kok Government Offices, 30 Luen Wan Street, Mong Kok; and the Central and Western District Office, Public Enquiry Service Centre, Unit 5, Ground Floor, The Centre, 99 Queen's Road Central.

     Any person who has an interest, right or easement in or over the foreshore and sea-bed involved can submit a written objection to the Director of Lands, 20th Floor, North Point Government Offices, on or before August 8, 2007.
