Since the Disney talks opened, planning for Penny's Bay has been modified to fit in with the theme park. Reclamation was cut to not less than 230 hectares, with space for hotels and parking. The park will be connected to the station at Yam O on the MTR Tung Chung line. Ferries will be available. It will be served by the North Lantau Highway and Route 10, which will connect northeast Lantau with Yuen Long and Hong Kong Island. The reclamation is initially being split into two phases involving at least 77 million cubic metres of fill. Up to 10 million cubic metres will come from construction waste. The first phase of reclamation will cover most of the site and involve dredging sea clay of up to 20 metres to bedrock. The average water depth of Penny's Bay is about 10 metres, which means the maximum depth of reclamation will be 30 metres. Quick settlement will ensure the reclamation is finished in two to three years, Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Science and Technology Dr Lee Kin-man has estimated. The Government will pay for the $4 billion-plus reclamation work at the bay. A temporary deputy director's post has been created in the Civil Engineering Department to ensure reclamation goes smoothly. Assistant Director (Civil)/Special Duties Tam Wing-kwong has been promoted to fill the post. Mr Tam has been involved in the reclamation study since late last year when Penny's Bay was marked for a container port development.
