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

Alert issued on fraudulent calls

Customs today appealed to the public to stay alert to deception-related phone calls purporting to be made by the department.   Customs noted that it recently received several public enquiries about receiving phone calls from +852 2815 7711, which is the same number as its general enquiry hotline, or from other local mobile phone numbers.   The caller claimed to be a Customs officer, saying that the called party's mail parcel or cargo consignment was seized by the department as contraband items were found inside it.   Some of the calls were subsequently transferred to another scammer posing as a non-local law enforcement officer.   Customs clarified that it did not make such calls, adding it has reported the incident to Police.   It reminded the public that officers will provide relevant information to verify the identity of both parties if they need to contact them and will not request sensitive personal information nor transfer the call to non-local law enforcement agencies.
