Fisherman'S Wharf

Any company operating ferry to Sai Kung bound to lose money

I refer to the letter by Andrew Maxwell ('Ferry service can ease weekend traffic congestion in Sai Kung', January 2).

Fishy rationale for rescaled Aberdeen plan

Compared with some mega infrastructure projects, the Fisherman's Wharf project was modest in financial terms. Intended as a way to attract tourists to dilapidated Aberdeen, its initial cost of about HK$1 billion was a fraction of the multibillion-dollar West Kowloon Cultural District project. Even the proposed cruise terminal at Kai Tak is estimated to cost taxpayers HK$7.2 billion.

Quick journey back in time

You do not have to be a clairvoyant to have foreseen, five years ago, that the completion of the first phase of Taipei's rapid transport system would lead to the growth of the small towns at its stations. Nowhere has it been as fast as at a former fishing village on the estuary of the Danshui (sweet water) River, on which Taipei stands.
