Wheelchair and Stroller Access Closed on Lee Tung Street

After a cocoa-on-lemon cupcake at Passion bakery (Kayser doesn’t have cupcakes, Sift and Kisses are takeaway only), a stroll via Lee Tung Avenue was the best way to connect back to Queen’s Road East. 

 

Hopewell, please insert a ramp. Why the steel barriers? who are you keeping out?
 
I was disappointed to find that the MTR underground tunnel construction had eaten up the entire pavement. Plastic boards and dividers were slotted right up against the steps of the development. The contractors hadn’t thought of putting in a temporary disability access ramp for the stairway… Nor did the developers. 

 

no access to Johnston Road
 
Some shops have already commenced business, mostly selling cosmetics and pricey Japanese biscuits. They probably weren’t told that the access was going to be limited… Hopefully they get to negotiate on the first six months of rent until proper pedestrian access is restored.
