It is now possible to walk to Admiralty again if you’re by the Wan Chai convention center. The walk is still not scenic, and neither romantic nor quick, but it does open up a vital channel which is shorter than doing the crazy walk out near Gloucester Road.
On the bright side, it is entirely flat, relatively smooth (great for strollers) and shielded from the construction site.
if you want to know how much of the Harbour has been filled here, take a look at the picture below.
There’s space for a whole new dual carriageway and the tunnel beneath.
Too bad the Wan Chai beach idea never made it past the drawing board.
