Question on traffic and transport planning in North Lantau
Islands District Council
Traffic and Transport Committee
Paper T&TC 39/2020
Ms Amy YUNG notified this Council that she would raise the following enquiry at the Traffic and Transport Committee meeting to be held on 20 July 2020:
“   The Transport and Housing Bureau (THB) submitted papers to the Legislative Council indicating that the works of MTR Tung Chung Extension would commence in 2023 and the planned Tung Chung West Station and Tung Chung East Station would be completed in 2029.  At present, residents of many housing estates in Tung Chung such as Ying Tung Estate and Yat Tung Estate have to take a half-hour bus trip to MTR Tung Chung Station.  In the next 10 years, with an increase of population in Tung Chung and the Tung Chung Extension not yet available, there would be a strong demand for other complementary transport services.
As such, I would like THB, the Transport Department (TD) and the Highways Department (HyD) to arrange representatives to attend the meeting and respond to the following:
1. Would THB co-ordinate with MTR Corporation Limited for increasing the length and frequency of trains operating on the Tung Chung line or co-ordinate with New World First Bus Services Limited and Citybus Limited for increasing the frequency of buses plying between Tung Chung housing estates and Tung Chung Station?
2. Would TD invite ferry operators for operating ferry routes plying between Tung Chung and the urban areas by way of franchising instead of licensing?
3. Would HyD explain the construction progress of the cycle track from Tung Chung to Sunny Bay and whether cycle parking areas would be provided along the existing and future cycle tracks in North Lantau?   ”
