Landscape Enhancement & Vegetation Maintenance

Landscape Enhancement - apart from road and structure maintenance, we are also committed to enhancing the streetscape of our community through greening, design and selection of paving patterns and street furniture commensurate with the environment, adoption of aesthetic highway structure design, etc. The following are some examples.

Vegetation Maintenance - Highways Department (HyD) also maintains vegetation on all SIMAR slopes and high speed roads under our jurisdiction. We nurture vegetation to stabilise slopes, establish green backdrop to highway system, enhance the local ecological habitats in the urban area. Moreover, we carry out tree risk assessment and take appropriate measures to mitigate the risk while preserving trees as far as practicable within our responsible areas.

We are launching the ‘Enhancement Programme of Vegetated Slopes of HyD (Phased Replacement of Senescent Acacia)’ to replace senescent Acacia trees under the department's management to safeguard public safety, enrich biodiversity and promote the long-term sustainability of highways landscape.
