Harbour Views 27 Mar 2007
Why is the P2 road in Central 40 meters wide?
The land reserved for P2 is 40 meter s wide
20 meters is sufficient for a 4-lane P2
Now that Government and transport experts have agreed that 4-lanes are enough, less land is needed for P2.
Using the Highways Department's own specifications, Queen's Pier can be saved in situ without jeopardizing P2.
And by reducing the width of the road, the harbour-front can become a better place for residents and tourists.

Government map shows that 40 meters is reserved for P2 allowing 8 lanes or more
Only 23 meters is needed for a 4-lane P2 with side walks
A 4-lane P2 can be combined with Queen's Pier in situ
