HK marathon gets 'M' Mark

The Major Sports Events Committee today announced that it has awarded the "M" Mark status to the 25th Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon to be held on February 12.   The committee's Chairman Wilfred Ng said the event will add colour and vibrancy to Hong Kong, like all other "M" Mark events.   “The 'M' Mark events showcase Hong Kong's capability to host world-class events and enhance Hong Kong's position as a centre for major international sports activities.   “These events also allow the general public to enjoy and participate in high-level competitions and nurture a sustainable sporting culture in the community,” he added.   Launched in 2004, the "M" Mark system aims to help local national sports associations organise more major international sports events and nurture them into sustainable undertakings. http://dlvr.it/Sj0HBF

Parking for the disabled extended

The Transport Department today said the coverage of the Parking Certificate for Drivers Who Carry People with Mobility Disabilities will be extended to on-street parking spaces designated for the disabled from January 29.   Currently, a holder of the parking certificate may park their vehicle at designated parking spaces inside government multi-storey car parks managed by the department when carrying people with mobility disabilities.   To further facilitate access for people with mobility disabilities, certificate holders can use the on-street parking spaces designated for the disabled.   The department is replacing the traffic signs at on-street parking spaces designated for the disabled by phases. The replacement works are expected to be completed within six months.   Eligible applicants will be issued with a new parking certificate from today. The maximum validity period of the parking certificate is three years.   The application form and the Notes to Help You document are available online.   The department will also send a letter with a new parking certificate by post to existing holders to introduce the details of the arrangement.   Holders are reminded to pay attention to whether the traffic signs concerned have been modified before parking.   They may visit the department's website for the locations of on-street parking spaces designated for the disabled with modified signs.   Call 2804 2600 for enquiries.
