Site trial on use of electric mobility devices to be held on cycle track near Science Park from February 26 to 28
     The Transport Department (TD) today (February 24) said that a site trial on the use of two main types of electric mobility devices, namely motorised personal mobility devices (mPMDs) and power assist pedal cycles (PAPCs), will be held from 10am to 7pm from February 26 to 28 on an approximately 1-kilometre-long cycle track section next to the Pak Shek Kok Promenade near the Hong Kong Science Park. The site trial aims to gain operating experience in regulating the use of mPMDs and PAPCs on cycle tracks and test the effectiveness of certain safety requirements.

     Registered trial participants with a permit issued by the TD will join the site trial under a one-off arrangement specifically for the site trial. Users of mPMDs/PAPCs without pre-registration are not allowed to join the site trial. Those who use mPMDs/PAPCs without a permit or use mPMDs/PAPCs outside the designated location and time period specified in the permit may commit an offence under the Road Traffic Ordinance (Cap. 374), its subsidiary legislation and other relevant legislation.

     Members of the public are advised to be alert to the arrangement of the site trial and be cautious when cycling in the designated cycle track section or crossing the cycle track. Ambassadors will be on-site to provide guidance and necessary assistance while social distancing measures will be in place to safeguard public health amid the epidemic.
