Public urged to keep "star attraction" clean
************************************************


Visitors to Hong Kong's latest tourist spot - the Avenue of Stars - and the neighbouring public facilities in Tsim Sha Tsui are urged to keep them clean and not to damage public property when visiting the area.

A spokesman for the Leisure and Cultural Services Department said today (May 6) that the Avenue of Stars had become a Hong Kong landmark since it opened to the public on April 28 and had attracted thousands of visitors each day.

"The department has been working closely with AoS Management Ltd of the New World Development Company Limited and other departments concerned to handle the cleanliness issue.

"A special patrol team has been formed by the department to work side by side with the cleaning staff of AoS Management to take stringent enforcement action against litter offenders.

"The department will not tolerate litterbugs and anyone found littering may be issued with a fixed-penalty ticket of $1,500," he said.

Posters and notices have been put up at the Avenue of Stars to remind visitors to maintain a clean environment and not to damage any public property during their visit.

"We appeal for visitors' co-operation and support. It is everyone's civic responsibility to keep the public facilities clean and tidy," the spokesman added.
