Bridge judgment to be studied

April 18, 2011
The Transport & Housing Bureau will study the High Court judgment on a judicial review of the environmental impact assessment on the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge before deciding the way forward.
The court did not accept six of the seven contentions the applicant raised in the review application, which were related to environmental standards.
It made its ruling on the grounds the Government had only provided the projected environmental conditions with the project in place and had failed to present separate data on the environmental conditions without the project in place.
The bureau said work on the main bridge has already started and it will continue to press ahead with the advance works on the local projects, and look into ways to carry forward the work to meet the completion target of 2016.
