Harbourfront cycle track a great idea

I want to applaud the efforts of Martin Turner and the Hong Kong Cycling Alliance for their lobbying of various government departments over a proposal for a new cycle route ('Cyclists in plea for route on harbourfront', September 7).

On two wheels or four?

Within Tin Shui Wai, the light rail dominates. It is the only form of public transportation available in the district unless you want to take a taxi. Yet the minimum fare for travelling by light rail is HK$3.80.

That's not cheap at all considering it costs only HK$2 to travel on a tram from Shau Kei Wan to Sai Wan on Hong Kong Island.

Tin Shui Wai job fairs 'just for show'

Legislators and residents of Tin Shui Wai have urged the government to create more work in the economically depressed area after a poll found only about a tenth of job seekers received offers at recent fairs there.

In a poll of 218 job seekers surveyed at two fairs in the new town in February, 11 per cent said they had been offered jobs on the spot.

Shy no more

When I have nothing to do, I sometimes sit on the sofa and look out of the window, and good memories of my school days come to mind.

I was a quiet student in primary school.

I wouldn't answer questions or ask for help when faced with difficulties.

Corrections & clarifications

'Troubled town' on C1 yesterday incorrectly stated 41.6 per cent of residents were educated to 'Form Six' or below. It should have said 'Primary Six' or below. Also, Tin Shui Wai North refers to the area north of Tin Wah Road, not north of Tin Shui Wai Road as stated in the report. The mistakes were introduced in the editing process.

What do you think about the smoking ban after a year?

We should look ahead at how to make the prohibition of smoking in restaurants and other places in Hong Kong more effective in 2008 and beyond.

What do you think of the Wan Chai renewal plans?

I welcome the news that the Wan Chai market will be preserved, but I have some reservations about adding a new residential tower on top of it.

It is not an easy task to get the balance right and it might become an eyesore in the city.

Bags of fun at Disneyland for young army from Tin Shui Wai

'Giving' is always better than 'taking' - this is the idea inspiring Hong Kong Disneyland in its Christmas initiative to invite children from disadvantaged families in Tin Shui Wai to help other people in need.

City cannot take safe reputation for granted

Hong Kong prides itself on the safety of its streets. Residents and visitors can generally roam freely, day or night, without fear. A crime map of the city, therefore, might seem largely of academic interest.

A 10-member housing advisory and service team is proposed by the Housing Authority to help new public housing residents become used to living in socially troubled Tin Shui Wai.

If successful, it may be expanded to other areas.

An authority source said it planned to contract out a HK$4 million project to an NGO next year to hire the team members.
