HK government has awarded the consultancy contract to Ave Arup & Partners HK Ltd for Tung Chung New Town Development extension. This is a planning and engineering study on the remaining development of Tung Chung Town. They plan to create 285 hectare of land for the new town extension (120 hectare from reclamation) and 40 hectare would be used for Theme Park/Major Recreational Uses.
the consultancy project begin in Jan 2012, 30 months to complete.
If they agree to further extend Tung Chung town, they would start work in 2017. Housing work in 2020.
40 hectare of new vacant land (Theme Park/Major Recreational Use) in 2020?
if HK Gov determine to build another theme park at Tung Chung East (this would be the third location after HKOP on HK Island, HKDL Resort at Penny's Bay, for a theme park or resort), would it be a Movies Theme Park?
