Background of Green Deck

Green Deck A Catalyst for Vibrant Community

Due to heavy cross-harbour traffic, Hung Hom District had encountered long time problems of noise, dust, poor air quality, overloaded footbridge, poor district connectivity and lack of open space. The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) has thus proposed the construction of a Green Deck over the Cross Harbour Tunnel Toll Plaza to help resolve these problems.

With funding from The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, PolyU has recently embarked on a Project Development Study of the Green Deck.  The proposed Green Deck would be covered by green landscape to form a public park which could improve air quality in surrounding environment. Also, there would be green open space with cultural, leisure and sport facilities for the local communities. By linking up PolyU campus, MTR Hung Hom Station and Tsim Sha Tsui East, Green Deck would also enhance the pedestrian connectivity among the nearby districts and act as a catalyst for vibrant community.
