Enhancing Lei Yue Mun's Waterfront

LCQ7: Enhancement of the Lei Yue Mun Waterfront
Government Press Release
Wednesday, July 6, 2005

Following is the question by the Hon Wong Yung-kan and a written reply by the Secretary for Economic Development and Labour, Mr Stephen Ip, in the Legislative Council today (July 6):

Question:

The Government is planning to construct a landing facility, a pier or landing steps, in Lei Yue Mun to facilitate tourists in travelling by boat to the seafood restaurants in the district, and the locations under consideration include the seawall about 90 metres east of the lighthouse by the Lei Yue Mun Fairway. In this connection, will the Government inform this Council whether:

(a) it has consulted the fishing community and fishermen operating in nearby waters on the location of the facility; if so, of the results of the consultation; if not, the reasons for that, and whether these people will be consulted; if no consultation will be conducted, of the reasons for that; and

(b) the construction of the landing facility near the lighthouse will narrow the Lei Yue Mun Fairway; if so, of the measures it will take to avoid the collision of vessels on the fairway?

Reply:

Madam President,

The Tourism Commission (TC) has since 2000 implemented a Tourist District Enhancement Programme in key tourist spots. As Lei Yue Mun is a very popular tourist destination for both visitors and local residents, TC completed a number of minor improvement works there in 2003 to enhance its streetscape and tourist facilities.

To further leverage on Lei Yue Mun's strengths including its scenic waterfront and famous seafood cuisine, TC is planning a number of improvement works to further enhance the tourist facilities in Lei Yue Mun's waterfront area. One of the proposals is to provide a new public landing facility to facilitate visitors' access by sea to the seafood restaurants in Lei Yue Mun and the nearby attractions such as the Tin Hau Temple. The new landing facility needs to be able to accommodate sight-seeing vessels, convenient to visitors and near to the seafood restaurants and tourism attractions. As the existing landing facility at Sam Ka Tsuen in Kwun Tong is located some distance away from the seafood restaurants, it has seldom been used by visitors or sight-seeing vessels.

As regards the proposed landing facility's impact on the fairway of Lei Yue Mun Channel, Civil Engineering and Development Department in conjunction with Marine Department have considered all factors carefully, the most important one being marine safety. The proposed site near the lighthouse is located outside the fairway of Lei Yue Mun Channel. It will not obstruct or affect the fairway, or reduce the fairway's navigational width. On the contrary, to facilitate navigation and berthing of sight-seeing vessels, the construction works concerned will involve dredging in the foreshore and seabed area in the vicinity of the proposed landing facility, so that the navigational width in its vicinity will be extended by about 30 metres.

Enhancement of the Lei Yue Mun Waterfront is a tourism project. The proposed landing facility is a part of the entire project which is at a preliminary planning stage. As Lei Yue Mun is a major attraction in Kwun Tong, we submitted the framework of the proposal to Kwun Tong District Council (KTDC) in May this year for its initial views. KTDC has expressed its support for the proposal and agreed that the most suitable location for constructing the proposed landing facility is to the east of the lighthouse. Relevant departments are at present looking into the technical feasibility of the proposal. If the proposal is confirmed to be technically feasible, we will proceed with the detailed design, marine traffic impact assessment and public consultation. Funding approval from the Legislative Council will be required for the project to proceed.

鯉魚門擬建鯉魚觀景台 營造漁村風味

鯉魚門擬建鯉魚觀景台 營造漁村風味 強調不涉填海
(明報) 05月 18日 星期五 05:05AM


【明報專訊】以海鮮馳名的鯉魚門,將重新打造成充滿漁村風味的景點。旅遊事務署昨公布「鯉魚門海旁改善計劃」設計概念,除了建議在現有的觀景台興建一個鯉魚形狀的觀景台作為鯉魚門地標外,亦包括在海濱闢設5個以海洋為主題的觀景點,預計整個工程最快可在2010年起分階段完成。

闢5海洋主題觀景點

整個改善工程範圍,由鯉魚門海旁的籃球場一直伸展至天后廟。其中,設計概念建議在現有觀景台上,興建一個8米長的鯉魚形狀觀景台作為新地標,其中3米會伸展到海面上,而地板可選用樸實自然的木料,或者以彩磚拼以圖案設計鋪砌。不過,建築署高級工程策劃經理鄭偉雄強調,設計不會涉及填海,因為樁柱會落在最高水位以上。

旅遊事務署指出,目前遊人到鯉魚門吃海鮮後,甚少行天后廟一帶,故設計概念同時建議在鯉魚門海濱闢設5個以海洋為主題、各具設計特色的觀景點,除了綠化及增設休憩、避雨設施,亦會美化地舖、擺放以海洋為主題的雕塑等,沿路地板亦會每隔5至8米便鋪上海洋動物圖案等。

觀塘區議會早前已同意,在鯉魚門燈塔以東地點興建公眾泊岸設施。旅遊事務署指出,這無可避免要清拆少於10間的寮屋。區議會普遍支持鯉魚門的旅遊改善計劃,但認為應盡量減低對居民的影響。議員亦提到,現時海旁路段較狹窄,工程完成後,交通配套等未必能應付增多的遊人,亦建議加設零售店、食肆等配合發展。

旅遊署﹕期望2012年全部竣工

旅遊事務署旅遊事務助理專員鍾麥雪梅說,會盡量考慮議員的建議,但指若擴闊路面,可能需要清拆更多寮屋,故要詳細研究。她表示,現時將手起草詳細的發展計劃,計算工程所需物料費用等,之後須經城規會審批及刊憲,期望明年暑假後可向立法會申請撥款,2009年初動工,2010年起分階段完成,2012年全部竣工。

鯉魚門變身海洋主題公園
(星島) 05月 18日 星期五 03:30AM
(綜合報道)




(星島日報報道)擁有漁村風貌並以海鮮美食著名的鯉魚門將會大變身,旅遊事務署已落實進行海旁改善計畫,包括興建公眾泊岸設施、開闢五個以海洋為主題的觀景點與海濱長廊,以及興建一個鯉魚形狀的觀景台,打造全新的鯉魚門地標。有關設計概念昨已獲觀塘區議會 通過,預計工程最快於○九年展開,二○一○年逐步完成。

  旅遊事務署○三年在鯉魚門完成多項小規模改善工程,包括美化休憩處、重鋪行人路、興建牌樓及增設公共交通停泊處後;○五年因應當地居民及商戶需求,提出興建公眾泊岸設施等改善工程,並獲區議會選出在鯉魚門燈塔以東,興建泊岸設施選址。

  去年經建築署及土木工程署聽取各界意見後,昨日定出有關設計概念徵詢區議會意見,設計包括在燈塔以東興建公眾泊岸設施、防波堤及一百五十米的海濱長廊。沿海濱長廊開闢五個以海洋為主題設計特色的觀景點,如設立以漁民、海洋生物設計的裝飾,並在合適地點加以綠化、增設休憩避雨設施等。

  較具特色的設計是在公眾泊岸設施附近,興建一個鯉魚形狀的觀景台,既可讓遊人旅客有如置身海中感覺,亦可成為新的鯉魚門地標,並建議可採用自然的木料地板或色彩斑爛的彩磚拼以圖案設計鋪砌地面。同時會在現時的籃球場及計畫的公眾泊岸設施附近,興建兩個休憩區,並會美化現時在籃球場至天后廟的行人路,貫徹海洋為主題。

  觀塘區議會對有關設計概念一致表示贊成,但部分議員擔心現時行人路徑較窄、對旅客構成不便或危險,建議擴闊路徑。區議員呂東孩認為,興建碼頭需要拆卸現有的寮屋,建議對現有寮屋居民多解釋安置賠償等安排。梁芙詠議員提出改善海旁之餘,也要有軟件配合,如增加小食零售店、咖啡茶座、跳蚤市場以及增加遮蔭位置,進一步吸引遊客到訪。

  旅遊事務署旅遊事務助理鍾麥雪梅表示,設計已盡量將受影響的寮屋數目減至最低,估計涉及十間以下的寮屋,約三至四戶人家。她指,現時仍屬初部階段,未能計算工程費用。署方完成有關設計及評估後,會先交予城規會審批,如順利通過,預期本年底至明年初提交立法會 批撥款,○九年初動工,二○一○至一二年分期完成。
