Services to the public will not be affected even if 181 projects approved by the municipal councils are dropped, an official believes. Most of the projects were awaiting tender, but were only at a preliminary stage, Director of Urban Services Rita Lau Ng Wai-lan said. 'Neither detailed planning, design nor graphics have been worked out. We cannot say all the 181 projects are prepared for implementation.' She believed services would not be affected even if the projects were scrapped.
