Street Light

I would like to make some observations about Hong Kong's premier beach, Repulse Bay, although they may equally apply to all gazetted beaches. Repulse Bay is a mecca for tourists, a place for the people of Hong Kong to soothe away the vicissitudes of urban living and an attraction that our Tourism Board puts near the top of its list.

Sai Kung residents up the ante against country park lamp posts

A long-running impasse over the installation of lights along a quiet, dark Sai Kung Country Park road shows no sign of easing, with residents yesterday escalating their attempt to have the plan shelved.

Residents lose fight against street lighting

Country park road to be lit

The Highways Department's last-ditch effort to convince residents of Sai Kung that street lamps along an unlit area of the country park are necessary has failed, but it still plans to press ahead with the plan.

Ambiguous rule

I refer to the letter from B. Chen headlined 'Headlight-shy drivers put others at risk' (South China Morning Post, May 4).

We fully support your correspondent's view (and have emphasised this in publicity campaigns) that motorists should always drive with their headlights on during the hours of darkness, or when there is poor visibility.

I refer to the letter 'Improve lighting' (South China Morning Post, November 3) concerning the request to improve street lighting at Sin Fat Road, Lam Tin.

Old road

I refer to the letter from J.R. Law headlined, 'Chaotic', which appeared in the Sunday Morning Post, on July 23, concerning works along Victoria Road.

Victoria Road is one of the older roads in Hong Kong and, as such, many aspects of the existing road are sub-standard.

Three injured

Two men and a woman were taken to hospital with head injuries after a light goods vehicle and a car collided at the junction of Hillier Street and Connaught Road Central. The car ploughed into a furniture shop and the van hit a lamp post.

Antiques light up streets

Tourist spots took on a historical look as old-style street lights were switched on last night.

Some 85 replicas of antique and more modern lamps flickered on in the first stage of a $3.5 million scheme.

Funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the scheme will see 420 lights revamped in 25 sites by October next year.
