The University is now looking for an experienced professional to lead the Project Development Study of the Green Deck. 

The proposed Green Deck project (the Project) involves the provision of a landscaped deck over the Hung Hom Harbour Tunnel Toll Plaza to bring about major social and environmental improvements to the area. The Project is an innovative solution to address the problems currently faced by the neighbourhood such as poor air quality, overloaded footbridge, poor connectivity within the district and lack of amenities and open space. It will not only provide people with a green open space to unwind from the hustle and bustle of city life, but will also help foster sustainable development and enrich quality of life in the community.
