CitySpeak: The changing streets of Tsimshatsui

10am - 12:30pm

The streets of Tsimshatsui are in flux. New buildings open up and older residential buildings are replaced with commercial properties. The Museum of Art and Star Ferry terminal will be revamped, and the Star Ferry bus terminus is set to become a pedestrian plaza once disputes are settled.

Sidewalks are improving but disagreements have put schemes to pedestrianize roads on hold. New developments plus the cultural district and the express rail station will bring more traffic. To address concerns over road safety the Transport Department is replacing pedestrian crossings with subways which some consider a welcome shelter and others a frustrating maze.
