Junk Bay

Build MTR line for Sai Kung instead of bridge to nowhere

I recently came across a webpage from the Civil Engineering and Development Department on the Tseung Kwan O cross-bay link which seems to be in the advanced stages of planning.

Poot bus service

MY family moved to Junk Bay recently, hoping the MTR will be built there by the year 2001. However, it is a long wait for white-collar commuters like me who work in Central. Currently there are two bus routes going to Central via the Eastern Harbour Tunnel - one runs each day, the other only on weekdays.

Unfair treatment

TUEN Mun residents have been ignored by Chris Patten's government. Tuen Mun's population is large, for example, it is more than double that of Junk Bay. And yet, despite this, the Government has declined to build a separate new road or railway connecting Tuen Mun with Tsuen Wan.

Wreck for sale

THE Marine Department has decided to seize a burnt-out gambling ship for auction after the ship owners failed to comply with an ultimatum to remove it. The wreck of the 4,600-tonne New Orient Princess has been lying in Junk Bay since shortly after it caught fire on August 25 last year.

Abandoned ship towed to Junk Bay

AN abandoned ship has been brought back to Hong Kong four days after its crew left it in the South China Sea.

The 7,300-tonne Poplar Trader was carrying 6,000 tonnes of kaolinic clay and other minerals from Hong Kong to Taiwan when it ran into difficulties 200 kilometres east of Waglan Island.

Bus fare increase is excessive

I LIVE in Junk Bay and find that the No 690 to Central, saves me a lot of time. It takes less than an hour.

However, its fare has been raised from $6.50 to $8; a rise of 23 per cent, but other tunnel buses' fares have only gone up by 17.7 per cent. The Government is encouraging people to move to the New Territories, but fare rises this high will deter people.
