Walking is a form of sustainable urban mobility that provides transport, social, environmental, economic and health benefits. Enhancing walkability is a global trend, and many cities including London, Sydney, Paris and Seoul have incorporated walkability as a key component in their transport planning to encourage their citizens to walk more. In December 2017, the Transport Department commissioned a study "Enhancing Walkability in Hong Kong" under the "Walk in Hong Kong" policy initiative, with the aim of formulating planning and design standards and guidelines which put priority on pedestrians, and a strategy to turn Hong Kong into a world-class walkable city.

The Chamber is delighted to have invited Ms Carrie Leung, Senior Engineer/Walkability 1, Task Force/Walkability, Transport Department of the HKSARG, to speak on the proposed walkability strategy and conceptual pedestrian plans for the two pilot areas in Central and Sham Shui Po. In her presentation, Ms Leung will share case studies in the pilot areas to help identify the opportunities arising from urban rejuvenation and creation of public spaces. She will also discuss the potential challenges when putting the plan into practice and how to resolve them.

Register early to avoid disappointment!
