Proposed reinstatement of Shek O Blue Bridge gazetted
     The Government has proposed in-situ reinstatement of the typhoon-stricken Shek O Blue Bridge at the Shek O Headland Picnic Area. The extent of the area of foreshore and sea-bed affected is described in a notice published in the Government Gazette today (March 13).

     The proposed works involve in-situ reinstatement of the Shek O Blue Bridge within an area of approximately 183 square metres of foreshore and sea-bed. The works aim to restore the bridge to its original appearance as far as technically feasible and to resume access to the Shek O Headland Picnic Area. The proposed works are scheduled to commence in the second half of this year for completion in 2021.
     The notice and its related plan are posted near the site. The plan is also available for inspection at:
* Survey and Mapping Office of the Lands Department (23/F, North Point Government Offices, 333 Java Road, North Point, Hong Kong) (where copies can be purchased on order);
* Southern Home Affairs Enquiry Centre of the Southern District Office (G/F, Ocean Court, 3 Aberdeen Praya Road, Aberdeen, Hong Kong); and
* Lands Department's website (www.landsd.gov.hk) under Government Notices.
     Any person who considers that he or she 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, 20/F, North Point Government Offices, 333 Java Road, North Point, Hong Kong, within two months from the above-mentioned date, i.e. on or before May 13. The notice of such objection shall describe the interest, right or easement of the objector and the manner in which he or she will be allegedly affected.
