Overview

The project

The scope of the project comprises the revitalisation of the existing King Yip Street nullah. The section between Kai Lim Road and its outfall, approximately 1 km in length, will be transformed into Tsui Ping River through environmental, ecological and landscape upgrades. The project also aims to enhance the connectivity and walkability of the region by the provision of walkways and landscaped decks. The project is expected to strengthen the flood protection capability of the existing watercourse while fostering a green river channel with community amenity purposes.
