The Third Phase

It was announced in the 2018 Policy Address that the Government would commence feasibility studies on lift retrofitting proposals for the remaining 127 walkways (or 131 items) across various districts with a view to taking forward the feasible items expeditiously so as to benefit the elderly and people in need (referred to as the “Third Phase” of the UA Programme).

The 131 items under the Third Phase (Details are here) are undergoing investigation or design work, including 45 items on which the HyD has briefed the DCs concerned on the findings of the investigation and the preliminary design. The HyD will subsequently start the detailed design for 44 supporting items found to be technically feasible and supported by the DCs. We anticipate that construction works for the Third Phase will commence progressively in this year.

[[Note] : Public walkways refer to public footbridges, elevated walkways and subways maintained by the Highways Department.
