Q3. What is the width of the bridge? How was the width of footbridge decided?
For the Argyle Street Section – along Argyle Street from Tong Mi Road Footbridge to Hak Po Street, the footbridge will provide a 4m clear width of pedestrian corridor, which is adequate to cater for future pedestrian usage, according to the assessment of the Consultant. Meanwhile for the Tong Mi Road Section – along Tong Mi Road from Tong Mi Road Footbridge to Fuk Tsun Street, to comply with the fire safety regulation, an emergency vehicular access of 6m wide should be maintained adjacent to the facade of a building to cater for the fire services officers to handle rescue operation during emergency. Hence, the proposed footbridge along Tong Mi Road will provide a clear width of 2m to 2.5m for pedestrian access, which is adequate to cater for future pedestrian usage, according to the assessment of the Consultant.
