What Can Be Done to Improve Hong Kong’s Walkability?

What Can Be Done to Improve Hong Kong’s Walkability?

Supported by Environment & Energy Committee



Paul Lengthorn, Development Director,  Mott MacDonald Hong Kong


The walkability of cities around the world has become an increasingly important consideration in new design and regeneration and to increase the sustainability and livability of the places we live in. This briefing will look at the approaches other cities have taken to improve their walkability and will also consider the very special circumstances of Hong Kong in achieving improved walkability, including our notable density of developments and the sometimes three dimensional nature of topography, and offer up challenges in analysis and applying improvements.   Our speaker will reference the on-going study for Hong Kong's Transport Department that is producing new recommendations and guidance on this topic.
