- Written by arounddb, 18 June 2016
Around DB has learned that plans have been put forward to develop sections of the Chi Ma Wan country trail near Shap Long and the gathering place of Chi Ma Wan trailhead, causing concern among local residents.
The plans include the construction of different technical mountain bike trail features and the erection of two bike racks, as well as new signs and an information/map board.
A spokesperson for the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) said that the proposed works are part of a wider project, announced under the 2015 Policy Address, to enhance mountain bike trails in Lantau, in terms of both riding quality and safety.
They advised that the technical trail features will be unpaved and will use natural materials. The works will be limited to specific sections of the trail.
Around DB understands that works were scheduled to begin in June, however are currently on hold until objections submitted by concerned residents have been dealt with.
