Hung Hom Finger Pier Barging Point

The barging point at Hung Hom Finger Pier is used for spoil disposal. The use of marine barge for spoil disposal can minimize the vehicular emissions, air impact, visual impact, traffic noise and congestion on roads. The barging point would be equipped with loading facilities to facilitate loading/unloading of spoil by dump trucks. Crushing facilities will also be provided within an enclosed area.

There will be no marine works undertaken such as dredging, no pontoon moorings, and no seawall modification works.
