Fostering a Pedestrian and Bicycle-friendly Environment

159. Under the Universal Accessibility Programme, the Government has completed more than 40 projects to install barrier-free access facilities at public walkways, and will continue to implement some 160 remaining projects.

160. Walking is an integral part of Hong Kong as a sustainable city. The Government will encourage people to walk more and rely less on motorised transport. We will consolidate past efforts to foster a pedestrian-friendly environment and promote “Walk in HK”. The Transport and Housing Bureau will implement new measures along four themes:

  1. “Make it smart” by providing user-friendly information on walking routes;
  2. “Make it connected” by enhancing pedestrian networks;
  3. “Make it enjoyable” by making walking a pleasant experience; and
  4. “Make it safe” by providing a safe and quality pedestrian environment.
