Hong Kong Infrastructure Experience (香港基建新體驗) Expansion

政府擬2.5億建永久基建展館


(星島) 06月 01日 星期日 05:30AM



(星島日報 報道)市民參與城市規劃及基建工程的興趣與日俱增,令政府不時安排諮詢展覽,展覽場地亦見供不應求。政府計畫斥資二億五千萬元,在現時大會堂旁的臨時香港規劃及基建展覽館,改建為永久展覽館,但有立法會 議員擔心新建樓宇會破壞原有歷史建築群特色。

  政府強調,新設計較樸實,並已得到古辦、區議會 等支持,望工程早日進行且約於二○一二年投入服務。

  政府有見於現有的展覽館只佔用大會堂附屬建築物的地面樓層,面積約為四百六十平方米。但由於近年市民對參與城市規劃及基建工程的興趣持續增加,政府要尋找展覽場地作有關的規劃講解及模型展覽,令有關場館不敷應用。

  當局建議動用二億五千多萬元,擴建現有的展覽館至大會堂附屬建築物的其餘四層,以至大會堂低座與大會堂附屬建築物之間設有天窗上蓋的部分,成為永久的展覽館,工程完成後將可提供達三千九百八十平方米的總建築樓面面積。

  原有建築特色不受破壞

  工程將分兩期進行。第一期主要是遷調現時食環署 及酒牌局的辦公室,並設立一個臨時展覽館繼續作展覽用途,涉及範圍為現建築物的一至四層,工程將於本年九月展開。

  第二期將於○九年四月展開,除把整個建築物進行外觀翻新外,亦對內部進行改建,新增大堂、多功能大廳、會議室、展覽區及資源中心等設施,預計整個工程將於二○一二年六月完成。

  昨日立法會發展事務委員會討論該發展計畫,但公民黨 議員梁家傑 擔心,改建計畫會破壞毗鄰大會堂低座、愛丁堡廣場 等歷史建築群的原有特色。

  發展局強調,有關工程早前已諮詢區議會及專業團體,並得到他們的支持。建築署亦應古辦的要求,作出適當的擬備設計方案,有信心原有建築特色不會受到破壞。本報記者
