THE Hong Kong government has started another round of asking for public opinions on building an underground space in some places. It will set up exhibitions to show what the new spaces would look like.
The government is studying if it is possible to build underground spaces in Tsim Sha Tsui (尖沙咀), Causeway Bay (銅鑼灣), Happy Valley (跑馬地) and Wan Chai (灣仔). The first possible spot is Kowloon Park (九龍公園), which is in Tsim Sha Tsui West (尖沙咀西).
In 2015, many Hongkongers said they wanted an underground space so that they can walk around even when there is bad weather overground. They also would like a diverse range of facilities be built in such spaces.
