The hotly disputed Wedding Card Street redevelopment in Wan Chai faces a new challenge just days after the project was awarded to a consortium of two big developers. Residents of a dead-end street that will be opened to through traffic as a result of the project sought legal aid yesterday to mount a judicial review. Under a plan approved by the Executive Council in April, Amoy Street will be turned into a two-lane road linking Johnston Road with Queens Road East. The link is needed to replace Lei Tung Street - former home to numerous wedding-card printing shops - which will be pedestrianised. The residents of Amoy Street, a block away from the site, have been campaigning for months against the change to their street, which now opens only to Johnston Road. They say the quiet of the neighbourhood, home to about 100 households, will be sacrificed. A representative of the Amoy Street Residents' Concern Group, Sara Vong Kam-lan, said the Transport and Housing Bureau, which proposed the Amoy Street plan only after the Town Planning Board approved the Lee Tung Street renewal plan in 2007, had bypassed town-planning procedures. 'The board could have made a different decision if there had been such a definite plan then,' she said. 'The Urban Renewal Authority's job is to carefully plan for renewing run-down living areas. But Amoy Street will be destroyed because of the renewal next door.' Residents were worried that traffic would bring air pollution to the street, part of which was only 6.75 metres wide - too narrow for a two-lane road, she said. The Urban Renewal Authority project, offering 1,000 luxury flats with some existing shops restored, was awarded to Sino Land and Hopewell Holdings this week. If the judicial review goes ahead it will be another hurdle for the project, which was hit by a string of challenges. A URA spokesman said a judicial review could bring uncertainty, but he did not think progress on the main site on Lee Tung Street would be affected.
