Yuen Long project construction starts

February 19, 2024

Construction of the first Light Public Housing (LPH) project at Yau Pok Road in Yuen Long, officially started today.


The Yau Pok Road project will provide about 2,100 LPH units, with intake expected to begin in the first quarter of 2025. Application arrangements will be announced in the second quarter of this year.


Deputy Financial Secretary Michael Wong, Secretary for Housing Winnie Ho and Secretary for Labour & Welfare Chris Sun officiated at the groundbreaking ceremony this afternoon.


Mr Wong thanked the Legislative Council, the local community and Sun Hung Kai Properties which lent the Yau Pok Road site for free, for supporting the project, adding that their assistance as well as the hard work of the construction team and government staff, gave hope to the public, especially families living in subdivided units and waiting for public rental housing.


Before the ceremony, Mr Wong and Ms Ho visited a mock-up LPH unit, received a progress briefing by Director of Architectural Services Michael Li and joined a video conference with a Mainland manufacturer that produces LPH prefabricated modules.


The Government noted that the Housing Bureau, the Architectural Services Department and the entire construction team are confident in meeting the target to complete the construction of about 30,000 LPH units by 2027-28.
