Show full item record Abstract Oil sands mining results in significant disturbances to natural ecosystems when soil and overburden materials are removed and stockpiled to provide access to mined materials. The mining process must be followed by land reclamation, whereby disturbed landscapes are recovered with the intent to replicate the performance of natural watersheds. Modeling hydrological processes in reclaimed landscapes is essential to assess the hydrological performance of the reclamation strategies as well as their evolution over time, and requires a reliable and continuous source of input data.
The results are visible, and visibly impressive. The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, now the world's longest sea crossing, was commissioned only last month. The previous month, the Express Rail Link, connecting Hong Kong to the national high speed railway network, opened for business - and pleasure as well.
From a regional perspective, these links enhance our overall connectivity with the Mainland. In particular, they deepen our integration with the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, while strengthening our singular position as Asia's world city.
During the construction stage, these infrastructure projects expand employment opportunities. And, upon completion, they boost economic prospects and improve our overall living environment. One of the upcoming major infrastructure projects we have in our plan is of course the Lantau Tomorrow Vision.
The plan will see artificial islands developed in stages. We will also build Hong Kong's third core business district on the artificial islands, creating someemployment opportunities.
We therefore need your help, to be sure. A stable supply of quality construction materials is essential for the upcoming reclamation projects — and for the many other infrastructure projects in the planning stage or on the horizon that will give shape and substance to Hong Kong in this 21st century.
The future must be built on productivity, on quality, safety and environmental performance.
This demands innovation — from you, and from the construction industry as a whole. That's why the Government now advocates "Construction 2. I'm pleased to hear that your industry has been developing, and promoting, the use of environmental and sustainable construction materials.
The adoption of manufactured sand to replace natural sand in cement plastering and reclamation work is a good case in point.
M-sand, a by-product of aggregate production, is an environmentally friendly material in comparison with natural sand.
Since last month, the Development Bureau mandated the use of M-sand for plastering, rendering and screeding in new public works contracts. Working with the materials industry, the Government is exploring a wider application of M-sand and other green materials, including recycled glass and bitumen, in Hong Kong construction.
I understand that your association, working with a Rebar Processing Solution Committee, is promoting the use of off-site steel prefabrication. That's a step in the right direction.
Indeed, the use of prefabricated steel products is a designated item under the fund.At a restaurant in the bustling Chinese city of Guangzhou, Adam Tsui Ho-wai holds up a queue as he fumbles with his wallet looking for cash to settle his bill.
