Proposed reclamation authorised

     The Chief Executive in Council, after considering the objections received, has authorised the proposed reclamation at the foreshore and seabed in Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and North Point, and at Victoria Harbour between Wan Chai and Tsim Sha Tsui.

     The proposed reclamation involves dredging of sea-bed for the construction of about 1,570 metres of seawall, about 550 metres of sewage outfall pipelines, about 1,100 metres of cross-harbour water mains and a piled ferry pier, as well as the formation of approximately 12.7 hectares of land.

     The key purpose of the works is to provide the requisite land for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass and the Island Eastern Corridor Link. The project is scheduled to begin at the end of this year for completion by 2017.

     The extent of the area affected is described in a notice of authorisation gazetted today (May 22). Any person who considers that his/her interest, right or easement in or over the foreshore and seabed involved will be injuriously affected by the above undertaking may deliver to the Director of Lands a written claim for compensation by May 22, 2010.

     The notice of authorisation together with its related plan (No HKM8141) can be seen at the Lands Department Survey and Mapping Office, 23/F, North Point Government Offices, 333 Java Road, North Point (where copies can be purchased on order); the Eastern District Office Public Enquiry Service Centre, G/F, Eastern Law Courts Building, 29 Tai On Street, Sai Wan Ho; and the Wan Chai District Office Public Enquiry Service Centre, G/F, 2 O'Brien Road, Hong Kong.
