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

Testing for ship services sector set

The Transport & Housing Bureau today said it will provide regular COVID-19 tests for frontline workers of the designated ship services sector from tomorrow.   The testing will be arranged for workers of companies providing services such as bunkering and reprovisioning of necessities to ocean-going vessels and/or river trade vessels.   The bureau explained that the testing is voluntary. Frontline workers who wish to participate are required to be registered for taking the test at specific time slots every 14 days at Hoi Kwai Road Public Transport Interchange in Tsuen Wan West.   Duty officers of the testing institution will collect the combined nasal and throat swab specimens from the participating workers for examination.   In case of a positive test result, the Centre for Health Protection, the bureau and the respective companies will be notified for further follow-up action.   The testing arrangement will last until July 31 tentatively.   Individual ship services operators may also continue with their ongoing arrangement for providing regular testing for their staff.   The bureau appealed to frontline workers of the designated ship services sector to actively participate in the regular testing arrangement with a view to safeguarding public health and minimising the risk of spreading the virus in the community.   Frontline workers are also encouraged to participate in the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme.
