The Ting Kau is interesting to me that they would, im assuming, built that artificial island in the middle of the waterway for the support tower. Why not just make a larger suspension span that wouldn't require blocking out the middle of the waterway. That strait of water is not that wide that a single span is unreasonable. curious

配合金融中心風格 增色彩添花槽
中區天橋後年換新裝

22/06/2006



【專案組記者吳倩婷報道】中區是香港的金融及旅遊區,名副其實是「心臟地帶」,但該區部分行人天橋及行人隧道等過路設施,因為日久失修而顯得相當殘舊,與周圍玻璃幕牆的新式高樓大廈相比顯得格格不入。為使有關過路設施的外觀可配合中區環境,路政署近年推出「中區行人天橋及隧道翻新計劃」,所有工程可望在後年完工。

凹凸磚方便殘障者
路政署官員表示,○二年已聘請顧問公司就革新中區及灣仔的建築物做研究,去年亦完成翻新近國際金融中心一段中環高架行人路,而今次的翻新計劃主要是針對商業中心及旅遊區內的原有建築物。

由於有關的行人天橋及隧道已使用了一段頗長時間,除外觀殘舊,部分照明系統亦不足,令到地方昏暗,而且欠缺殘障人士使用的設施,故翻新工程有針對性改善有關問題,例如將行人天橋上的天花光管系統換成燈槽加強照明,同時在地面鋪上凹凸磚,使這些道路設施符合現今「無障礙通道」的要求,方便殘障人士使用。

至於美化外觀方面,鑑於上述道路設施多以真面目「石屎」示人,顏色特別灰暗。所以路政署計劃從顏色方面手,例如是在隧道的天花、橋身及橋墩髹上新顏色,部分更會增置花槽栽種植物,美化建築物之餘更可綠化區內環境,有關工程預計會在本年底展開。
