The Lands Department today (November 30) posted notices in accordance with section 14 of the Roads (Works, Use and Compensation) Ordinance (Chapter 370) and section 4 of the Land Acquisition (Possessory Title) Ordinance (Chapter 130) for the resumption and acquisition of land for improvement works of the sections of Hiram's Highway, Po Tung Road and Tai Mong Tsai Road from Marina Cove to the south of Sha Ha.
A total of 58 private lots with an area of about 11 830 square metres will be resumed and the land being occupied by a grave with an area of about 16 sq m will be acquired. The said land will revert to or vest in the Government upon the expiry of a period of three months from the date of affixing the notices (i.e. March 1, 2024).
The Government will maintain close liaison with the relevant land owners and affected parties, and properly handle their compensation matters.
The works mentioned above aim to relieve traffic congestion on Hiram's Highway and Po Tung Road, and cope with the anticipated growing traffic demand. The works are scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2024 and will take about eight years to complete.
