IS anybody, ever, going to do anything about the traffic in Fo Tan? We all know about the ''concerned'' departments ''monitoring the situation'', but if they want an instant assessment of the situation, they could talk to any one of the hundreds of people stuck in the chaos each day.
Above Fo Tan there are three schools catering for over 1,200 students. If there was ever an accident to one of those children, I guarantee that an ambulance from Prince of Wales Hospital could not do the rescue in under half-an-hour.
I have heard of ''studies'' into a second access/egress for the whole area, but still nothing happens.
I know that many places have computer-controlled traffic lights, but in Fo Tan the lights must be deliberately timed to make vehicles stop at each set. Red lights and yellow boxes are being regularly, and understandably, ignored by increasingly frustrated drivers.
The waste of man-hours and natural resources is scandalous.
I would be happy to give a guided tour to anybody in a position to actually get something done.
Hint: do something about the ''new'' timing of the lights at the junction Yuen Wo Road/Fo Tan Road, which has finally brought everything to a standstill.
