     The Development, Planning and Transport Committee (DPTC) held its 11th
meeting on 1 September 2009 and discussed the following issues:

1.   Works Progress of the Provision of Pedestrian Crossing under the Flyover at
     Pennington Street
     Representative of Transport Department (TD) expressed that they had requested
     Highways Department (HD) in July 2007 to commence Phase I of Causeway Bay
     Transport Improvement Scheme. Due to the problem of underground facilities,
     the right-turning traffic light at Moreton Terrace for Causeway Road was
     eventually completed until mid December 2008. Meanwhile, a vehicle flow
     survey conducted by the department in April this year showed that the east-bound
     vehicle flow on Pennington Street dropped. The department then consulted
     parties concerned again and further revised the operation mode of the traffic light
     involved. As for the works in question, the department had already issued the
     construction request form to HD asking them to commence Phased II and III of the
     said works. TD remarked that they would report to the Committee should there
     be any hindrance in the works progress.
