Overview

The boardwalk underneath Island Eastern Corridor (proposed boardwalk) connecting Causeway Bay and Quarry Bay is one of the 13 projects under the funding for harbour front enhancement. With the completion of the proposed boardwalk, the harbour front of the northern shore of Hong Kong Island stretching from East Coast Park Precinct at North Point to Quarry Bay will be connected, providing a continuous promenade for public enjoyment. The proposed boardwalk is approximately 2.2 kilometres (km) long and maintains a width of at least 10 metres (m) wide throughout, with a western and an eastern section. The western section (approximately 0.7 km long) runs from East Coast Park Precinct to Tong Shui Road, whereas the eastern section (approximately 1.1 km long) runs from Tin Chiu Street to Hoi Yu Street.

During the site visit, a presentation about the project background will be provided in the beginning and followed with the site visit focusing on the marine foundation works. Both large diameter bored pile and pre-bored socketed H-pile are under construction.
