To enhance communication with the public, the Sustainable Lantau Office (SLO) of the Civil Engineering and Development Department has set up the Tung Chung Community Liaison Centre (CLC) at 13 Tung Chung Waterfront Road, Tung Chung at the end of 2021. The CLC was constructed through renovation and modification of an unused site office. Its architectural design is in harmony with the adjoining Tung Chung East Promenade. Various themed exhibition areas were set up inside the CLC. Visitors can know more about the development projects and conservation works/initiatives of SLO as well as the nature, culture and history in Lantau, through various interactive exhibits and models. Apart from allowing the public to visit, the Atrium and a meeting room inside the CLC are open for non-Governmental organizations and schools to use free of charge, by reservation, for organizing activities/events, so as to share the space for public enjoyment. About 3,000 square feet of area at 11 Tung Chung Waterfront Road is used as the CLC Extension which has been opened in January 2023, with a themed exhibition area and an interactive drawing game area “Wonderful Lantau”, to provide more spaces for different exhibitions and activities, with the theme of conservation and sustainable Lantau in particular.

Tung Chung East Promenade
Tung Chung East Promenade is about 400m in length. Adopting an “incremental approach”, the promenade has been opened in phases. While the first two sections of the promenade (about 155m) have been opened since the end of 2021 to allow early enjoyment of the promenade by the public, the remaining section has also been opened since January 2023. Various sustainable features and design concepts are adopted in the promenade, to promote carbon neutrality, biodiversity, reduce waste, and beautify the environment, etc. It connects to the Tung Chung Development Pier in the west. Here, you can sit, run, ride your bike, and walk with your pets. Everyone can enjoy the waterfront freely in a mutual respect environment.
A. ‘Biochar’ in Sustainable Construction and Planting
This demonstration project is in collaboration with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. It produced through 3D printing techniques. The biochar is created by biomass waste, which, when combined with concrete, serves to reduce carbon emissions. Adding biochar to the soil in the planters can benefit plant growth and increase biodiversity.
B. Rain Garden
When it rains, rainwater is collected by the drainage system beneath the rain garden. The plants in the garden absorb a portion of the collected rainwater, while the rest is purified and processed before being directed to underground drainage. This system serves as an ecologically sustainable means of rainwater control and utilization, reducing the demand for irrigation water, and alleviate issues of waterlogging. In the long run, it can aid in effective management of water resources and improving overall water quality.
C. Bird Nesting Box
To integrate biodiversity in the renovation of CLC Extension Building, artificial bird nesting structures were installed at high points of the building as a trial. These nesting structures would provide accommodations for urban birds, such as sparrows and house swifts, attracting biodiversity to CLC Extension and Promenade in complementary with the greening work at the area.
D. Small Nursery
A Small nursery located in the promenade currently hosts a diverse range of flora, encompassing both ornamental and fruit-bearing species. Its primary objectives are to foster civic enthusiasm towards horticulture and greenery, and to impart fundamental botanical knowledge to future generations.
E. Aquaponics Exhibition Area
Microorganisms in the aquaponic system convert wastes from the fishes into nutrients that can be used by plants. The plants extract the nutrients from the water to grow and clean the water for the fish. This is an environmentally friendly system that can cut costs and pollution by reducing the amount of fertilizer used and waste produced.
F. Zero Irrigation System
Zero Irrigation System comprises a wicking mechanism which is a self-sustained and passive design to deliver the storm water stored in the water retention cells to the vegetation through capillary action and minimize topsoil evaporation.
G. Large-scale Word Art
There are two different interesting signage designs at the Main Entrance and the West Entrance. Dot matrix is the main theme for the Main Entrance signage, with colorful pins attached to a dark blackboard. It is huge and eye catching, people can easily identify the entrance for the Promenade even across the road. At the West Entrance, a 1.8m high colorful signage is erected for people to take photos.
