Thinking Big: A Vision for Hong Kong’s Waterfront

Enhancing Design of Cycle Tracks within Waterfront Promenades

AltaGO has teamed with Atkins Engineering to study the feasibility of creating a continuous waterfront promenade that accommodates shared-use along Hong Kong’s waterfront.  The project was initiated by The Development Bureau of Hong Kong. AltaGO is working with Hong Kong’s Civil Engineering Department, Transportation Department and Leisure and Cultural Services Department, as well as coordinating with the Hong Kong Cycling Alliance and the Harbour Loop Coalition.

AltaGO is evaluating alignment options, developing a standards and guidance manual for shared-use and generating a promenade brand identity for the project. The study is also coordinating with several efforts currently underway including the Wan Chai and Oil Street Park, IEC Boardwalk, and IEC interchange.

When completed, this will become the standard for shared-use design in Hong Kong and will serve as a precedent for facility design in dense population centers across Asia.
