TUNG CHUNG TEMPORARY BUS TERMINUS

I have news that construction work at the new Tung Chung commercial development extension adjacent to Citygate is nearing completion.

This leads to the question of what will happen to the temporary DB01R bus stop close to MTR Exits A & D.

Many residents I have spoken to appear to favour retaining the current location instead of returning to somewhere near the former position, which is now covered by a new podium.

Since I (SNTPC) was heavily involved in the 2014 campaign  to suggest and eventually win approval for the current site of the temporary bus stop, I took the initiative recently to have this topic discussed at my own VOC meeting. The overwhelming consensus was to request that this present bus stop is retained.   

I will try to get this topic onto the Agenda for the next Passenger Liaison Group meeting and hopefully someone higher up the local political food chain will get this discussed at COC level.

Please do your bit to get this moving . If we don't fight to keep this stop, we will lose out to other Tung Chung residential bus services who I hear, also want "our stop".

keep it where it is.....great for everyone involved (residents, visitors, staff)......also good for south lantau residents as it gives the blue taxi drivers less space to sit and sleep rather than drive their taxis......

Great work mate.

Isn't the current location just a temporary arrangement with an agreement to move it to the new terminus further away than the old location?

The current bus stop is very nice and convenient. Journey time is shorter and faster.

Old location was not so bad but visitors had trouble finding it and tourists boarded wrong bus (as an example it still happens in Sunny Bay)

I wonder if the government would allow DB to retain the current bus stop. Considering Tung Chung is planned to have 250,000 residents and is a major tourist hub, I expect priority would be given to locals and tourists especially with Macau/Zhuhai bridge opening this Sunday (July 1, 2018).

What is HKR's preference regarding the bus stop location?
