About 

Highlights :

The Boardwalk underneath Island Eastern Corridor (proposed Boardwalk) connecting Causeway Bay and Quarry Bay is one of the 13 projects under the funding for harbourfront enhancement. With the completion of the proposed Boardwalk, the harbourfront of the northern shore of Hong Kong Island stretching from Shek Tong Tsui in Western District to Aldrich Bay in Shau Kei Wan will be fully connected, providing a continuous promenade of some 12 km long for public enjoyment. The proposed Boardwalk is approximately 2.2 kilometres (km) long and maintains a width of at least 10 metres (m) wide throughout, with a western and an eastern section. The western section (approximately 0.7 km long) runs from Oil Street to Tong Shui Road, whereas the eastern section (approximately 1.1 km long) runs from Tin Chiu Street to Hoi Yu Street.

During the site visit, the presentation for the project background will be provided in the beginning and follows with the site visit focusing on the marine foundation works.
