Kai Tak
Let this not be a wasted opportunity
May 2013
20haResidential neighbourhoods are segregated from the leisure, recreation and sports activities
along the approach channel by roads, flyovers and amenity areas.
Roads
Compare
Darling
Harbour

Sydney
with Kai Tak
Roads run behind the
waterfront properties,
or well above it

Fight for a better home
• The planning of Kai Tak is a disaster.
• Where Singapore and Sydney have used similar water bodies
to create world class destinations we excel in creating
nothing out of our 10km waterfront.
• One of the problems is the Central Kowloon Route. It will be
gazetted soon and unfortunately we will all have to object.
• We can’t let the road engineers destroy Kai Tak in the same
way they have destroyed the Kowloon West Reclamation.
