    Pedestrianization and Street Performance / Heatwave in Hong Kong

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Jim Gould

    On Thursday's Backchat -- it's looking like the end for the popular pedestrian zone in Mong Kok, which is likely to be reopened to traffic seven days a week after complaints about noise disturbance caused by street performers. The local council is due to vote on a motion later on Thursday calling for the scrapping of the weekend restrictions on vehicles in Sai Yeung Choi Street South, with the government likely to act accordingly. The council received more than 1,200 noise complaints from residents last year. So is it reasonable to reopen the street to road traffic - or is it a retrograde step? There are also calls to relocate the pedestrian zone to a different area where it's easier to manage, and introduce a licensing scheme for performers. What do you think about that? At the same time, the campaign continues in support of a traffic-free zone in Des Voeux Road Central, in the heart of the business district on Hong Kong Island.
