Hong Kong: flats over the container terminal?

This is one of the solutions being studied by the government to meet the strong pressure for housing. The other option would be to relocate the terminal concerned, Kwai Tsing Container Terminal, which currently handles 80% of the territory’s traffic.

Relocating the 380-hectare terminal, on the other hand, raises the difficulty of finding an alternative site. A joint port-city solution which is unprecedented to say the least! It will be proposed to the public in March.
