The Civil Engineering and Development Department’s (CEDD) Mui Wo Facelift project is fast nearing completion, with the waterfront promenade now open for use, although not officially.
As of late November, while the footpath was half open, neither the bike track nor the bridge for the footpath/ bike-path combo were completed. The CEDD hopes to have the full promenade, including the bike track, formally open by January 2017.
While there is still work to be done, the initial opening has already been a hit with locals. “I think this is a beautiful edition to the Mui Wo community,” Lantau resident Dan Macheski says. “It allows the local residents to stroll along the water, they don’t have to worry about cyclists going by and it is a great place to spend the afternoon.”
