DES VOEUX ROAD CENTRAL GRAND PRIX 2016

EVENT ENDED

A walkway was turned into a racetrack for office chairs that raced to push for a more walkable Des Voeux Road Central under a hot noonday sun. Office chair racers competed to finish the lap between Pedder Street and Central Market by overcoming different obstacles on the street. Representing office workers from Central, the chair race pointed out the difficulties pedestrians encounter on DVRC: an overcrowded pavement, heavy roadside pollution and lack of shade. In addition, there are frequent conflicts between vehicles and pedestrians.
