  Municipal Projects

60. People are concerned about the planned capital works projects left by the two former Municipal Councils. Members of District Councils and this Council have also raised this issue with me. The Government has reviewed these projects individually. Having considered the distribution of leisure and cultural facilities, as well as the needs of various districts due to increasing population, we have initially identified 25 projects for priority treatment. The cost will total $4.4 billion and works will start gradually over the next few years. These projects, including a public library-cum-recreation centre in Tin Shui Wai and a swimming pool complex in the new town of Tung Chung, will create several thousand jobs.
