Location
地點

The site chosen to demonstrate the three principles outlined in the previous section is located at Tseung Kwan O, also called Junk Bay. This is a natural location for incremental growth at the edge of the established urban core.

Junk Bay opens up to the strait between Chai Wan and the Clear Water Bay Peninsula, which is called Nam Tong Channel in Cantonese. This is where this proposal gets its name.

被選的地點是基於之前提及過的三項原則,位於將軍澳,是現有市中心邊緣發展的天然位置。

將軍澳開拓了柴灣與清水灣半島之間的海峽,即廣東話的藍塘海峽,這個計劃亦因此命名。

Nam Tong comprises just over 200 hectares of proposed land reclamation in Junk Bay, as well as the existing Tseung Kwan O Industrial Estate, LOHAS Park, the Tseung Kwan O Area 137 Fill Bank, Junk Island (Fat Tong Chau), and three landfills, two of which are closed. Including both existing land and proposed reclamation, the study area comprises approximately 688 hectares.

藍塘區由超過200公頃填海闢地組成,包括現有的將軍澳工業邨、日出康城、將軍澳第137區填料庫、佛堂洲及三個垃圾堆填區,當中兩個已關閉。包括現有土地及建議填海闢地,研究範圍約688公頃。

Land reclamation
填海闢地

The proposed reclamation will affect only artificial shorelines, while the natural shoreline of Fat Tong Chau has been preserved. The site lies outside Victoria Harbour, and therefore does not fall within the remit of the Protection of the Harbour Ordinance.

建議的填海闢地工程只會影響人造海岸線,而佛堂洲的天然海岸線則可完好保存。該地區位於維多利亞港外,因此不在「保護海港條例」的範圍內。

Landfills
堆填區

The closed landfills that surround the site are actually an advantage. Major development cannot take place on a closed landfill due to ground subsidence as well as the health hazard posed by leachate and landfill gas. But closed landfills can be redeveloped as parks, as has been successfully demonstrated elsewhere in Hong Kong. The operational SENT Landfill is nearing capacity and can also be redeveloped as a park following decommissioning, providing opportunities for sport and leisure.

在地盤周邊的關閉垃圾堆填區其實是一個優勢。由於土地沉降以及垃圾滲濾污水和堆填沼氣對健康的危害,在關閉的垃圾堆填區不可進行大型發展。不過,關閉的堆填區可以重建為公園,在香港其他地方已經成功推行。營運中的新界東南堆填區已接近飽和,停用後也可以重建為公園,提供運動和休閒機會。
