On today’s programme, we’re talking about a possible upgrade to the road network on Lantau Island.
The Secretary for Development, Bernadette Linn, has said the aim would be to promote sustainable development and secure better connections between the north and south sides of the island by improving transport infrastructure. The plan could involve bringing the old Tung Chung Road back into use and expanding sections of several other roads in stages, including South Lantau Road, Keung Shan Road and Tai O Road.
After 9:45, we’re going to be looking at a study led by scientists from the Baptist University on Covid-19 infection, which it's hoped could lead to more effective treatments for those with weak immune systems and who are unable to take the vaccine.

On Thursday's Backchat, we're talking about Hong Kong's goal to eradicate AIDS as a public health threat by 2030.
The objective was laid out on Tuesday in a five-year strategy released by the Hong Kong Advisory Council on Aids, in line with the goal set out by the United Nations Programme on HIV and Aids, to end the disease as a public health threat.
So far in the first 9 months of this year, Hong Kong has recorded 307 new HIV infections, of which 53 involved a diagnosis of Aids.
And homosexual contact among men make up a high proportion of HIV infections, followed by het-erosexual contact and drug use via injection.
So what are the main challenges in eradicating AIDS as a public health threat? Can it be done over the next 8 years?
After 9.15am, we will look at the government's plan to revamp cross-harbour tunnel fares.
And at 9.25am, we'll be joined by RTHK sports correspondent Atom Cheung with the latest on the World Cup.
