On opposite sides of the road

Environmental battle lines are being drawn around the idyllic village of Ma Nam Wat, set along a deep inlet outside Hebe Haven, where indigenous villagers want to drive a 4km road through virgin country park land.

Students, teachers dig in

More than 100 students and teachers took part in a tree planting day in Ma On Shan Country Park as part of the fifth 'Respect Our Teachers and Love Our Students Campaign'. The event was co-organised by the campaign committee and the departments of Education and Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation.

Bikers on wrong track

I WISH to thank Mr Billiet for drawing our attention to a motorcycling incident in the MacLehose Trail in Ma On Shan Country Park (South China Morning Post, February 17).

Motorcycling along any footpath in country parks is strictly prohibited, and our department will take appropriate action against such illegal activity.

No peace in the park

IT is sad to notice that, despite all the noise being made about a greener environment, one of the few remaining peaceful areas of Hongkong is now also being raped.

The other week my hiking partner and I had to literally jump off the MacLehose Trail in Ma On Shan Country Park to dodge a racing motorbike, complete with tracksuited rider, loud noise and blue smoky exhaust.
