Quick Wins

The Quick-wins aims to enhance the pedestrian environment by providing convenient crossing and widening of pedestrian holding areas at critical locations. A social experiment that places emphasis on pedestrian facilities over that of vehicles. The scheme will upgrade the pedestrian environment on Des Voeux Road Central (DVRC), in a total of nine crossroads, along Li Yuen East Street to Morrison Street. Pedestrian crossings will be introduced; or extended, or turned into light controlled pedestrian crossings (e.g. Morrison Street and Cleverly Street crossing). Existing traffic light time settings would be adjusted to optimize pedestrian crossing time.

The Quick-wins will provide safer pedestrian crossings and more pleasant pedestrian roads for the neighborhood residents and workers while promoting walkability that encourages residents in establishing a healthy lifestyle. In the longer term, we hope to create a better public open space by partially pedestrianizing DVRC. Given the ongoing pandemic and social distancing restrictions it would even be more pertinent to provide for more spacious pedestrian facilities.
