The paper also points to community concern about road safety, the apparent abuse of the permit system and the inadequate provision for parking.
The community group says it “strongly support[s]” additional services such as more buses, taxis and ferries, and calls on the TD to explore fresh options such as mini-bus and double-decker buses and a private/public transport interchange at Tung Chung.
Of these issues, TD has raised only the safety and parking issues, in both cases expressing the view that neither were a problem.
The biggest element missing is a coherent vision. The LanDAC process has trashed the 2007 Lantau Concept Plan and replaced it with a series of mass tourism and development projects, culminating in the grandiose East Lantau Metropolis, a business district to be built on an artificial island in the waters between Mui Wo and Hong Kong Island.
