Road test for equestrian venue
A rehearsal to test traffic arrangements and spectator services for the August Olympic equestrian events will be held at the competition venue in Sha Tin next month.
It is expected to be the first and only 'on-the-spot rehearsal' involving traffic control in the run-up to the events.
Sin Yat-kin, Home Affairs Bureau equestrian events co-ordinator, said yesterday the Hong Kong Equestrian Company would use a performance being staged at the venue for students on July 12 to test traffic measures and spectator services.
Between 10,000 and 12,000 Sha Tin residents will be invited to attend and organisers will provide free shuttle buses for spectators.
Police will not take part.
