Preservation of Cultural Heritage

Overview

The works on the western end of CKR will involve some features and sites with conservation value.

  • Conservation of Yau Ma Tei Police Station

    The existing Yau Ma Tei Police Station (with Old Wing and New Wing built in 1923 and 1957 respectively) has been classified as a Grade II historic building. The current alignment will completely avoid the interface with the Old Wing. While the alignment will pass through the foundation of the New Wing, the New Wing can still be preserved by underpinning of the New Wing. The existing kitchen, laundry and the building structures in the carpark will be demolished in conjunction with the construction works of CKR.

    As a result of the construction of CKR and the need for expanding the police station, the police station had been relocated to the new building at Yau Cheung Road . The existing site will be temporarily closed during the construction of CKR. Upon the completion of the works, the whole police station will become available for suitable long-term use.

  • Temple Street Night Market

    The alignment of CKR will pass through the Yau Ma Tei Multi-storey Car Park Building which will be demolished to facilitate the construction works. During the construction period, cantilever hoardings will be erected along the footways along the sections of Temple Street and Shanghai Street on the periphery of the building to ensure the safety of pedestrians and avoid disruption to the night market activities.
