BACK in September 2018, Typhoon Mangkhut (山竹) hit Hong Kong hard and caused a lot of damage, from fallen trees to flooded shops. Four months later, much of the damage has been fixed, but a few country park facilities remain broken.
The director of the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD, 漁農自然護理署署), Leung Siufai (梁肇輝), said on 29 December that Mangkhut wreaked havoc in Hong Kong and caused a lot of trees in country parks to fall down.
According to Leung, those that blocked roads and trails had been cleared as soon as possible. In fact, most of the damage had been repaired by November 2018.
Currently, only a small number of the facilities are still waiting for bids from contractors to fix.
