With security concerns over terminating inside Be| —Air, it was agreed to terminate at the slip road opposite Be| —Air Phase 6. The 58M will be popular with Cyberport and Sandy Bay workers arriving, and Bel-Air residents leaving for work in the morning; and vice versa in the evening. It runs from Monday to Friday 7am to 7pm with a peak headway of 15 minutes and off-peak headway of30 minutes. Passengers can take 58 or 58M, whichever arrives first, to the MTR.

  4. 4. 4 Additional vehicle for the 30X - E. :l: ’.r. §§J11l1$ > Unpredictable waiting time for the 30X is a long—standing concern, and source of complaints ever since I took on the office as District Councillor in 2010. Together with the Bel-Air Owners‘ Committee we have pressed the operator and transport department for improvements. As a small win in this continuing battle, the operator has agreed to deploy one more vehicle during the morning peak and as needed during off peak hours to ensure the departure times can be met. We will continue to monitor the performance, the effect of the additional vehicle and the opening of the MTR stations. We will press for further investments if needed. §i; "£1*2T£2010$?

The former senior staff quarters at the back of Radcliffe are renovated to accommodate the pathology department. The second phase will be the redevelopment of the high block at the north. Liaison meetings with Royalton and Radcliffe residents were held, and Queen Mary management reports regularly at District Council meetings. Concerns included the relocation of the mortuary, lack of pavements along roads through the hospital compound, the traffic impact during construction, and the mitigation of noise associated with the rooftop he| ipad. The environmental impact assessment process will take place next year, and is open to public input. For comparison, the helipad at Pamela Youde handles 247 flights a year on average, with two-thirds during the day. A community liaison group will be constituted to monitor the Queen Mary redevelopment project. £%%%l3:"fi%'—l%E§§i¥IE E IEEEJJI ° lf'E$Ef5lz‘l$’: %i>%‘E; '“£lJl? .J3<~‘fi%i‘7lii§7§ EGETE afififiltéififi ° %': l3i: iE§3.$§iE5$£%EE? :ll: fi HWUE ° l‘? £7‘: ‘E, ?JLIE E E'1iifi%1‘7lUSi§| ll%lE E%Efi§5Ufi1§E 1 /7l'”fiT_, H.lii'=1lE%§§§E $l>"zi’5i£lE ° EE$EE§>“$$E% I §t‘EJ%¥1i EEE’9,%2% ~ %EE%5lEE%§2§fi)KE%)32i% 3$E§+i§§l$i%l§i3Fl5)iE$E’Jl| ;'= ."E*E‘F'= fi%_E ° 1%. ?

  9. 9. ‘ *5 Pokfulcém Wce'i'er'fron'i' fiflilillilifiifi 4 Cyberport Waterfront Park - What next? - "F-55 ? 1 Our local Sandy Bay Rugby Football Club is preparing a proposal for managing the 57,220 square metres waterfront park. They _. . have obtained commitments for new funds, and identified a team with park management experience. They plan to invite ideas from the community for improvements to be made to the park and the pier. The park would remain open to all and free to use as it is now — but dogs would be banned from a A new turfed area. They would like to make an area in front of the Arcade (20% of the park) suitable for sports with an artificial turf surface. Local clubs, schools and community can use this for rugby, soccer, frisbee, cricket, and other ball games.
