There are no Declared Monuments within the project study area so that there is no impact on Sites of Cultural Heritage as defined under Schedule 1 of the the EIAO.

An Air Raid Precaution Tunnel is located in the area between Winslow Street, Chatham Road North and Yan Fung Street. The tunnel is neither graded nor proposed to be graded by the Antiquities and Monuments Office (AMO) and some sections will be filled in by mass concrete to ensure safety of the work sites during the construction phase. Mitigation in the form of full cartographic and photographic survey of the affected tunnel sections will be conducted and submitted to the AMO for approval prior to the commencement of the construction works.

In handling any EIA-related inconsistencies that may arise due to amendments to the gazetted scheme, MTR Corporation would follow the guidelines and requirements of Section 13 and Section 10 (1) of the EIAO in the EIA processing.
