Development of Rock Caverns and Underground Space

99. The Government will consult the public on the preliminary proposals on the relocation of service reservoirs at Diamond Hill, Sham Tseng Sewage Treatment Works and Sai Kung Sewage Treatment Works to caverns, as well as the development of underground spaces in Causeway Bay, Happy Valley, Admiralty/Wan Chai and Tsim Sha Tsui.

Reclamation outside Victoria Harbour

100. Technical studies on reclamations in Siu Ho Wan on Lantau, Lung Kwu Tan in Tuen Mun and Ma Liu Shui in Sha Tin will be completed this year. The planning and engineering study on the approximately 60-hectare reclamation in Ma Liu Shui will commence as soon as possible. At the same time, we will commence new planning of the 28 hectares of land to be freed up upon relocation of the adjacent Sha Tin Sewage Treatment Works to caverns, and consider allocating it for advanced technology and knowledge-based industries, as well as residential and other uses. The planning and engineering study on the approximately 200-hectare reclamation at Lung Kwu Tan will also commence as soon as possible to provide land for industrial and other uses.
