Three flooded car parks to hopefully reopen by year end


The city’s Transportation Bureau (DSAT) has cleared three car parks – those of Portas do Cerco, Pak Lok and Edifice Cheng I – affected by the flooding during Typhoon Hato in August, and they will hopefully be reopened for public use by the end of this year.
DSAT noted that the purchase of related equipment and repair works must undergo administrative procedures, while reiterating that procedures are accelerating.
The Bureau further reported that the car park located within Edifice Fai Tat suffered the most damage, with the ventilation system, lifts, electronic gate and fire system completely damaged. As such, the authority is expecting that the car park will only be available for public use during the first half of next year.
A little over a month since the super typhoon, DSAT has removed 470 vehicles from the affected car parks, of which 433 were light vehicles and 39 were scooters.
