Please keep LCSD venues while celebrating New Year's Eve

The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) today (December 30) urged people celebrating New Year's Eve at LCSD venues to keep the venues clean and tidy.

On New Year's Eve, the LCSD will implement a series of measures in conjunction with other government departments to maintain cleanliness and safety in LCSD venues including the Hong Kong Cultural Centre (HKCC), Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, Avenue of Stars (AOS), UC Centenary Garden, Shatin Park and Shatin Town Hall where large crowds, those participating in the countdown in particular, are expected.

"Law enforcement teams of the LCSD, Food and Environmental Hygiene Department and Police will patrol in the Tsim Sha Tsui and Shatin areas and take action against littering, illegal hawking and vandalising of public properties," an LCSD spokesman said.

The piazza of the HKCC and its adjacent waterfront are currently closed for works on the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade Beautification Project and people are urged not to congregate in the surrounding crowded areas.

"Along both sides of the AOS and the seafront side of Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, mills barriers will be placed to create a one-metre-wide sterilised zone to prevent anyone from accidentally falling into the sea," the spokesman said.

"People staying in crowded areas should stay calm and take care of their safety. We will also take away all removable items there to enhance the pedestrian flow," he added.

Anti-littering and crowd management measures in Cantonese, Putonghua and English will be broadcast regularly through public announcement systems at the HKCC, AOS, Shatin Park and Shatin Town Hall.

More refuse bins will be placed at LCSD venues to keep them clean. Additional workers will be deployed in the Tsim Sha Tsui and Shatin Park areas to quickly clear rubbish and perform overnight cleaning duties.
