Hong Kong to Improve Accessibility to Pedestrian Subways


Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying announced a plan to improve access to Hong Kong’s footbridges and pedestrian subways through a multi-million dollar plan to install elevators.  Currently underway in 10 locations, the project is expected to spend HK$100M in its first year, eventually reaching HK$1B in three years.  Two hundred twenty sites have been identified for the improvements.

“This is a huge social investment, but I believe elderly people or people with disabilities will support our plan,” Leung said.
