Focus Group Meeting with Cyclist Groups​

A focus group meeting was conducted with a number of cyclist groups in June 2015. Views collected are summarized into the following categories:

> Targets
  • Forms part of the future Tseung Kwan O cycle track loop
  • Planter for separation between cycle track and footpath
  • Becomes a popular attraction to the recreational cyclists
  • Possible competition purposes

  • > Cycle Parking Facilities
  • Cycle racks would be provided at each of the 3 viewing platforms to provide more opportunities for cyclists to park their bikes and enjoy the view at the bridge
  • Suggestion : provide more cycle racks along the bridge section.

  • > Alignment and Longitudinal Gradient
  • The alignment and longitudinal gradient below 3% of the proposed cycle track is desirable.
  • Curve widening of cycle track to improve sightline.
  • To facilitate emergency rescue on cycle track, intermittent accessibility provisions alongside the adjacent carriageway would be available.
  • Suggestion : more accessibility provisions to be provided.
  • Suggestion for better coordination of cycle track network in TKO Town Centre South in particular the one adjoining the waterfront area of Area 86.

  • > Ancillary Provisions
  • Cross-Passage along planters to allow cyclists to dismount and return to footpath would be available
  • Suggestion : Cross-Passage provisions at a more frequent intervals, with facilities to discourage possible misuse of cycle track by pedestrians
  • Planter of 450mm high is desirable.
  • Suggestion : encourage alternative finishes with impact absorption materials to reduce the level of possible injury.
  • Suggestion : enhancement on gully grating design or adoption of side grating to minimize possible hazard.
  • Suggestion : additional provision of about 300m long “warm up loop” is proposed in TKO Town Centre South promenade to better facilitate the possible future cycling competition/events.
  • Suggestion : additional separation measures between cycle track and footpath at Road D9 to discourage possible misuse of cycle track.
  • Other Suggestion for new signage/road-marking provisions : white doubled-line to prohibit overtaking at curved section; “slow down” road markings along sloping sections; develop new signages to prohibit possible misuse of cycle track by pedestrian.

    > Associated Suggestions on Adjacent Cycle Track Facilities
  • Planned Southern Footbridge adjacent to the Eastern Channel – Cycle track provisions to provide alternative path in addition to the one provided on the existing footbridge at Eastern Channel.
  • Ocean Shore – Possible connectivity of existing cycle track within Ocean Shore to the planned cycle track network along Tong Yin Street.
  • Suggestion : Possible cycle track connection between TKO district and Yau Tong district via O King Road.
