Ji plans to bring a lot of people to the store owner: the flow of people is the business

Residents and shops hold different opinions on the government's plan to develop tourism in the Southern District.

Mr. Du, who runs a store next to the Ap Lei Chau Waterfront Park, hopes that after the implementation of the plan, it will promote the economy and boost the flow of local people.

However, he pessimistically believes that the measures that the government can implement are limited. He pointed out that the Jumbo Seafood Boat was unable to support the epidemic and closed its business.

I don’t know how to come up with it. Even if you have seafood boats in the morning, they are ready-made. They all support it. Why don’t you order them?

Mr. Du, Store Owner

Asked whether he is worried that rents may increase after the plan is implemented.

Mr. To reluctantly said that the current economic environment is bad, and he can only let it go. "It's really shocking." He explained that the number of tourists on Ap Lei Chau Street is scarce. The elderly and children are reluctant to go out during the epidemic. "Water hose", "I ask for more blessings, and I am not optimistic. (How long do you think it can be supported?) I myself (hold)."

Neighbors urge the government to solve the traffic problems in the district first

However, some residents in the district were strongly opposed to the plan after learning of the plan. Mr. Chen, who was born and lived in the southern district until now, believes that the southern district has always been known for its "quietness". If a large number of tourists flow into the district and increase rents, the neighborhood shops will be difficult to support.

"In the past, there were many special stalls on Ap Lei Chau Main Street as an example. They have already been sold because the South Island Line has led to an increase in rent." He pointed out that if the government insists on developing tourism in the Southern District, it should also first Solve the problem of supporting transportation.

He said that even though the eastern section of the South Island Line is now open to traffic, the congestion in the Aberdeen Tunnel remains unchanged.

"Ordinary rework is off work. There are half an hour to nine words in the tunnel jam. I am talking about driving."

Staff of Aberdeen Fish Market: Hong Kong version of Tsukiji is not feasible

In fact, as early as 2011, the government planned to move the Aberdeen Fish Market adjacent to the site, following the example of the Tsukiji Market in Tokyo, Japan, and develop the wholesale market into a seafood market that can be cooked immediately after salvage, and finally shelved the plan after being studied by the Tourism Commission.

Ms. Li believes that even if it successfully developed into "Hong Kong Tsukiji", it would not have too much expectations, because the market is expensive, the environment is poor, and the water splashes. "If you are not greedy for freshness, you will not go for it. "

Mr. Lam, a staff member of the Aberdeen Fishery Market, pointed out that the parking lot outside the fishing market was narrow and trucks had filled the entire road. He thought the plan was not feasible.

Mr. Lin, who has worked in the Aberdeen fish market for more than 20 years, said that he does not hope that the "Dancing Hong Kong Island South" project will restart the development of the fish market.

He explained that the parking lot outside the fishing market is narrow, trucks have filled the entire road, and there are also a large number of seafood markets in the Mainland that can be cooked immediately after landing. Therefore, the plan is not feasible.

"There may be people eating in Biandu and traffic jams all day long. There are many types of markets in mainland China."
