New harbourfront space opens

The Development Bureau announced that the Pierside Precinct near Wan Chai Ferry Pier further opened today, providing a nostalgic harbourfront leisure space with a panoramic view of Victoria Harbour for the public.   Being the 12th harbourfront leisure space that opened since October last year, the newly opened area is located to the east of the ferry pier on a harbour site reclaimed for the construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass.   The bureau said under the incremental approach, a 180-metre-long promenade of the precinct opened earlier in March, followed by the opening of a further 80m in October.   With an area of about 4,600 sq m, the newly opened part has almost doubled the precinct's original space.   In contrast to the colourful cartoon style adopted at other harbourfront sites opened earlier in Western District and Wan Chai, the precinct mainly comprises simple fair-faced concrete and wooden structures.   It features a stylish touch with its clear and rectiline

Work injury compensation to rise

Compensation for work injuries and death from job-related causes will be increased from April 15.   The 2.68% to 18% rise will be applied to 18 items under the Employees' Compensation Ordinance, the Pneumoconiosis & Mesothelioma (Compensation) Ordinance and the Occupational Deafness (Compensation) Ordinance.   The amendments were gazetted today.   The Labour Department said the compensation levels are adjusted every two years.   The new levels will enhance protection for injured employees and the families of deceased employees, it added.
