Drainage improvement in Tsuen Wan

     The Government intends to provide a protective layer for the outlet of a proposed drainage tunnel outfall by dredging the existing foreshore and sea-bed and laying precast concrete units and/or armour rock at Yau Kom Tau, Tsuen Wan, to protect the foreshore and sea-bed from erosion and scouring by stormwater discharged through the drainage tunnel.

     The work, which will affect an area of approximately 3600 square metres of foreshore and sea-bed, is scheduled to begin in June 2009 and to be completed by September 2011.

     The extent of the area affected is described in a notice published in the Government Gazette today (September 19).

     The notice together with its related plan can be seen on notice boards posted near the site.  The plan can also be seen at the Lands Department Survey and Mapping Office, 23rd floor, North Point Government Offices, 333 Java Road, North Point, and at the Tsuen Wan District Office, 1st floor, Tsuen Wan Multi-storey Carpark Building, 174-208 Castle Peak Road, Tsuen Wan.

     Any person who has an interest, right or easement in or over the foreshore and sea-bed involved may submit a written objection to the Director of Lands, 20th floor, North Point Government Offices, 333 Java Road, North Point, by November 19.
