What? The Star Ferry pier in Central will be demolished. This will be the fourth time that the Star Ferry pier in Central has been forced to move. Why? To make way for a four-lane Central-Admiralty road link. Who? Who is behind Art Action to Conserve the Star Ferry Clock Tower? Mostly students. They have been campaigning every Sunday for the last two months. When? When will the new Edwardian-style pier open? On November 12. The Star Ferry will organise a charity farewell ride on November 11 with four ferries taking 1,800 people to Tsim Sha Tsui as the clock strikes midnight. Where? Where will the new pier be? A 10-minute walk from the old pier. How? How many people use the Star Ferry every day? The Central to Tsim Sha Tsui route sees 53,000 passengers a day, but the company expects to lose as much as 13 per cent of its passengers because the new pier is a 10-minute walk from the old one.
