LegCo Panel on Development visited Tung Chung East Reclamation Site


The Legislative Council (LegCo) Panel on Development visited the Tung Chung East Reclamation Site on 1 April 2021 to learn about the progress of the works.

The Sustainable Lantau Office gave a briefing on the implementation progress of Tung Chung New Town Extension Project, and the advanced reclamation method adopted in the works - Deep Cement Mixing (DCM). Such method not only minimizes the impact on water quality and marine ecology in nearby waters, but also takes a shorter time than the traditional method to complete the reclamation works, which could effectively expedite the supply of new land. The LegCo members also exchanged views on the reclamation works of Tung Chung East with the Secretary for Development, Mr Michael Wong and the Director of the Civil Engineering and Development Department, Mr Ricky Lau. Members then boarded the barge to observe the operation of DCM method and the progress of the reclamation works.
