(14 Dec 2015) Conference on "Green Deck"

Green Deck Conference

 

Overview

Due to the poor environment and fragmented connectivity of neighbourhoods around the Hung Hom Cross Harbour Tunnel, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) has advocated the construction of a "Green Deck" over the toll plaza of the tunnel. Further to a series of multi-disciplinary research and studies conducted by PolyU faculty members, it is considered that the "Green Deck" project is not only effective in improving the air quality, it will also bring extensive and long-term benefits to the community, for instance, increasing open space and providing convenient access to the nearby districts and Tsim Sha Tsui East waterfront. With its environmentally-friendly features and sustainable benefits, the project has been recognized with the Merit Award in Green Building Award 2014 (Research and Planning).

The proposed “Green Deck” area covers 43,000 square metres, which can be used to accommodate a wide variety of recreational, cultural and sports facilities. With a view to engaging the different stakeholders in the formulation of a better development proposal, we are organizing a Conference on “Green Deck”, with guest speakers from various industries including planning, engineering, transportation, tourism and green building. Apart from discussing the development potential of the project, we will also explore how best we could take this innovative social project forward.
