The Government's refusal to allow the continued use of Kai Tak's Terminal 2 after the move to the new airport would cause congestion on the roads leading to Chek Lap Kok, a legislator said yesterday. Miriam Lau Kin-yee said the decision affecting about 600 small- and medium-size freight forwarders would force them to individually send cargo to Chek Lap Kok, increasing road traffic. If forwarders were allowed to use Terminal 2, their cargo would be consolidated and fewer trucks would be needed to transport the goods to the airport, the legislator said. About 3,000 trucks are expected to descend daily on the new airport, in addition to normal traffic. Mrs Lau said since Terminal 2 was a policy issue, the Hongkong Association of Freight Forwarding Agents (Haffa) should approach policymakers in the Government's executive branch for redress. Haffa chairman Anthony Lau Siu-wing said it would soon set up a committee to deal with the issue. He said Haffa's many appeals to the Government to ease the period of transition from Kai Tak to Chek Lap Kok had fallen on deaf ears. The Government Property Agency's decision to reject Haffa's appeal to retain Terminal 2 would seriously hurt the ability of small- and medium-size companies to compete in the market place, Mr Lau said.
