A TAI PO man is suing Tung Chee-hwa over a village road claimed to be a 'deathtrap'. The Chief Executive had refused to allow villagers to repair a road damaged by a property developer, according to a High Court writ lodged yesterday. In the writ, Lai Kwai-yip has applied for an injunction to stop Ka Lee Property Development Company from continuing development in Tai Po Kau village, near Sha Tin, and seeks that villagers be allowed to repair the road. The writ said the work had severely damaged public utilities, including a road that villagers had built themselves. 'The self-built road is not suitable for the use of any heavy vehicle and there have been many landslides . . . everywhere is a deathtrap,' the writ said. Although the Government had allowed villagers to build the public road in 1972, it had refused to approve their plan to repair it, the writ said. Mr Lai said he had complained to the Chief Executive and to various government departments. 'The Chief Executive has to maintain fairness and justice and he cannot pass the buck, endangering the lives of villagers who use the road,' Mr Lai said. He urged the Chief Executive to attend the court hearing.
