Council Meetings (Oral Question): Bus Stops (2018.07.11)

MR CHAN KIN-POR (in Cantonese): As a number of railway lines will be commissioned in the future, it is anticipated that there will be changes in the frequency or mode of using bus services by the commuting public. I therefore would like to ask the Government: Given that the Transport Planning and Design Manual has been in use for many years, whether a review of the Manual will be undertaken accordingly to revise the principles laid down therein, so as to reflect more fully the functions of road-based transport modes?

SECRETARY FOR TRANSPORT AND HOUSING (in Cantonese): I thank Mr CHAN Kin-por for his supplementary question. The Transport Planning and Design Manual mentioned just now was introduced in the 1980s, but with the change of times, we have been updating the Manual on an ongoing basis, and it was last amended in February this year.
