Noise barriers for Pak Shek Kok Promenade against Tolo Highway
Dear Leisure and Cultural Services Department,
I am writing to explore the possibility of installing noise barriers for visitors of Pak Shek Kok Promenade. I've made a related request of information to Environmental Protection Department https://accessinfo.hk/en/request/noise_b... please contact the EPD staff if needed. Here are my questions for the department to answer under the Code on Access to Information.
1. To what extent is the Pak Shek Kok Promenade affected by the noise from Tolo Highway? Please let me know the length and percentage of the promenade that is near the highway.
2. Has the department reviewed or considered the possibility of installing noise barriers to protect the visitors of Pak Shek Kok Promenade? If so please provide details of the review outcome; if not, please explain why.
I'd also take the opportunity to urge the department to look into the needs to install noise barriers in the relevant premise. Thanks in advance for your attention.
