On Tuesday's Backchat, public and private on the waterfront. The Government and the Harbourfront Commission agree that working with the private sector is the best way to revitalise the waterfront. The FS has promised $6 billion for extending and enhancing promenades on both sides of the harbour - how do we make them interesting, and avoid the pitfalls of an LCSD development, while avoiding claims of collusion, or blatant commercialisation. Are there lessons in the Avenue of the Stars , or the Central Waterfront? What about the experioence in Singapore or Sydney? Could NGOs or the Jockey Club play a part?
After 9.20, more problems on the MTR.
