Transport Department have advised members of the public that in order to facilitate clearance operations, the cycle parking spaces at Mei Yuen Street near Sai Kung Tang Shiu Kin Sports Ground will be suspended during the period 8:00 a.m. on 9 October to 4:00 p.m. on 12 October 2017.
Erithicus wonders what will happen to the Gobee bikes that seem to have taken over this spot? At the same time, the legal notices state that bikes will be removed after 24 hours – but this seems to have been waived for Gobee, as BUZZ staff have seen the same bikes there for a number of days – blocking all the stands so other cyclists cannot park legally, but have to leave their bikes chained to the railings nearby. Strange, seeing it’s so close to the police station; but then, who’s really in charge? Police/Transport Department/Lands Department? Something must be done to address the whole issue. It’s just crazy for so few legal places to park, and so far away from the centre – as can be seen by by the fluorescent green plague spreading along the waterfront.
