Director of Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation, Commissioner for Transport, Director of Highways, Sai Kung District Council, Hong Kong Police Force, Director of Water Supplies,
We, the undersigned, hereby petition the AFCD, Transport Department, Highways Department, Sai Kung District Council, Hong Kong Police, and Water Supplies Department to install ‘cattle grids’ to protect the lives of feral cattle and enhance road safety for all road users in Sai Kung.
Below is our proposal:
What are “cattle grids”? ‘Cattle grids’ are a commonly used method for humane management of animal movements in many countries and there is already one actively used on a privately owned property in Sai Kung, with high success. Feedback from the private property was that the cattle grid did its job keeping the cows from their premises and also they had no accidents reported with the grid.
Actual grid on the private property, with swing gate to the right for pedestrian / bicycle use. Proposed location for the first cattle grid: The junction before the road splits to Man Yee Road / Sai Wan Road, within Sai Kung Country Park. Many thanks to AFCD and Sai Kung residents for their positive response to the on-going cattle issues and looking out for these harmless animals.
