Create a “walkable” and pleasant pedestrian environment and an easily accessible transport network, with enhanced connectivity between MTR Kwun Tong and Ngau Tau Kok Stations, KTBA and the waterfront.
Kwun Tong was an important base for manufacturing industries in the past and is now transforming into a core business district (CBD). In May 2014, the Energizing Kowloon East Office (EKEO) of the Development Bureau commissioned the “Pedestrian Environment Improvement Scheme for Transformation of Kwun Tong Business Area (KTBA) Feasibility Study” (this Study).
The objectives of this Study are to review and assess the pedestrian environment and traffic conditions of KTBA and to formulate feasible improvement schemes and proposals, in order to improve the pedestrian connections and traffic network as well as to strengthen the accessibility from the MTR Kwun Tong and Ngau Tau Kok Stations to KTBA and towards the waterfront.
Strengthen the connectivity between Kwun Tong Road and Kwun Tong Promenade to achieve a more vibrant waterfront
