1457 SIGNATURES OBTAINED, THIS CAMPAIGN ENDED ON December 1, 2016

Chief Executive, Chief Secretary for Administration,

CY Leung’s Government has been pushing the Legco finance committee to approve an additional HK$19.6 billion funding for the Express Rail project, bypassing the public works subcommittee, despite of its white elephant nature.

The over-budget project wiped out farm land and drove away farmers and villagers in New Territories years ago. To make way for the infrastructure, vast amount of space was created, that includes the underground space (the size of the area of two IFC 2 buildings) in West Kowloon and 27 acres of land in Shek Kong. When old and empty industrial buildings can be transformed into hotels or commercial buildings, why can’t this available space be transformed into something useful and beneficial for the public? For instance parks, gardens, cycling path and even farm land.

Please join us in supporting the ‘Express Rail Transformation Option’ for a more reasonable development that benefits the community. We need to gather 10,000 signatures and we shall submit the transformation plan to the HKSAR Government and appeal for the stop of its funding application to Legislative Council.

To Chief Executive, Chief Secretary for Administration,

In view of the Express Rail’s over-budget and poor rate of return, and the risk of damage to the ‘One Country Two Systems”, I appeal to the Hong Kong SAR Government:

  1. Stop its application to Legislative Council for the funding of $19.6 billion to cover the over-budget;
  2. Develop a transformation plan for the Express Rail so that the space available at the West Kowloon Terminus and the Shek Kong site will be turned into commercial, residential, community, parks, gardens, cycling path and even farm land or other public uses for maximum public benefit.

梁振英政府罔顧程序公義,明知高鐵效益低劣,一地兩檢有損一國兩制,仍在催迫立法會通過196億元超支撥款。

高鐵工程過去六年來創造的最大資產是位處西九相等於两棟國金二期的地下空間和石崗27公頃已回收平整的發展用地。幾十年樓齢的工廠大厦可以翻新改建作酒店商厦,為何還未起好的高鐵資產不能變身轉型作商場房屋或其他公共用途?

政務司長林鄭月娥說高鐵停工是「天方夜譚」,倡議改建是「不負責任」。如果你不怕政府指罵,相信「不負責任」的香港人比特區官員更懂得珍惜香港,可加入【高鐵變身方案】倡議人行列。若有一萬名市民加入倡議,我們會將方案正式遞交特區政府,要求停止撥款並制訂改建計劃。
