Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Pilot Study on Underground Space Development in Selected Strategic Urban Areas.

In many densely developed urban areas, Hong Kong is experiencing heavy pedestrian and traffic flows leading to a congested street environment. Besides, the densely built environment and limited land resources have limited the scope for further development of the urban areas to satisfy long-term community needs.

In June 2015, the Government commissioned the “Pilot Study on Underground Space Development in Selected Strategic Urban Areas” covering four selected Strategic Urban Areas (SUAs), namely Tsim Sha Tsui West, Causeway Bay and Happy Valley, and Admiralty/Wan Chai. The Study aims to identify the potential for underground space developments in each of these areas, and to formulate Underground Master Plans to guide the future underground space development.
