Infrastructure works in Tseung Kwan O proposed

     The Government has proposed infrastructure works at Town Centre South and Tiu Keng Leng in Tseung Kwan O to make available the two areas for planned development.

     The Town Centre South area is a new reclamation and largely undeveloped, except for a housing development and two schools in Area 65. Tiu Keng Leng is partly developed for residential uses and schools. The Feasibility Study on Further Development of Tseung Kwan O, completed in December 2005, recommends high quality medium-density commercial/residential developments in the undeveloped areas to accommodate a population of about 25,000 people, a civic node with government/institution/community facilities and open spaces. The site formation and infrastructure works will make available the two areas for the planned development.

     The works, scheduled to start in late 2009 for completion by early 2012, will affect approximately 10.7 hectares of foreshore and seabed at the south of Tseung Kwan O Town Centre, with the existing box culvert outfall and the associated seawall removed. Marine pile decking, caisson seawall, seawalls, landing steps and drainage outfalls will be built while the existing drainage channel will be filled up.

     A notice describing the extent of the area affected was gazetted today (May 15). People can inspect the plan at:
* Lands Department Survey and Mapping Office, 23/F, North Point Government Offices, 333 Java Road, North Point; and
* Public Enquiry Service Centre, Sai Kung District Office's Tseung Kwan O Sub-Office, 1/F, King Lam Neighbourhood Community Centre, King Lam Estate, Tseung Kwan O.

     People who consider that their interest, right or easement in or over the foreshore and seabed involved will be injuriously affected by the undertaking may make claims by writing to the Director of Lands, 20/F, North Point Government Offices, 333 Java Road, North Point, by May 15, 2010.
