香港工程師學會 發展人工島意見書之理據分析

(香港,2020 年 12 月 16 日) 香港工程師學會 (下稱「學會」) 一直支持以多元模 式開發土地資源,認同政府應盡快就《明日大嶼》進行前期研究,以提供更多 科學數據供社會討論,有望解決香港長遠土地供應問題。

 

學會察悉最近坊間對學會早前向立法會財委會提交的發展人工島意見書有一些 討論。學會希望藉此向公眾說明理據,有助大眾了解學會專業意見背後的立論 基礎。

 

首先,學會深明人工島的發展須考慮氣候變化帶來的影響,如海平面上升及風 暴潮等因素。

 

意見書提到現時填海造地一般高度為主水平基準面以上 6 米。以颱風山竹於
2018 年 9 月襲港時為例,有關超強颱風引起的最大風暴潮比天文潮高 2.35 米, 仍低於目前一般填海造地的高度。而事實上,颱風山竹來襲期間,鰂魚涌和長 洲潮汐站錄得的最高潮位 (包括風暴潮) 只分別為主水平基準面以上 3.73 米和 3.58 米1。

 

學會留意到坊間言論指於 2200 年 (即 180 年後),海平面將會上升 5.1 米2。這個 說法值得商榷。事實上,聯合國的政府間氣候變化專門委員會 (IPCC) 在 2014 年發布了第五次評估報告 (AR5)。隨後超過 190 個國家於 2016 年簽定了《巴黎 協定》,同意採取措施,目標於本世紀末時,將氣溫升幅控制在工業革命前水平 低於 2℃之內。通過相關的努力,相對應的溫室氣體濃度應屬於中溫室氣體濃 度。根據 AR5 報告,按中溫室氣體濃度的情況,預計在 2200 年平均海平面上 升高度約為 0.26 米至 1.09 米,遠較該坊間引述的為低。我們相信未來有關 研究,將會提供更多的相應氣候參數。

 

學會意見書提到的填海造地高度為現有的一般標準,任何填海工程都必須經詳細研究方能設定實質填海造地高度。為增強人工島適應氣候變化的能力,如應 付海平面上升或風暴潮等潛在影響,我們可於設計沿岸防禦措施時預留設計彈 性,增強其適應氣候變化的能力。我們早前的意見書己指出,在工程技術方 面,可建造更高的海堤、設置弱波石或在沿海地區規劃更寬的海濱長廊等。因 此,政府應進行相關研究,加深大眾對計劃的理解。待完成詳細研究後,才能 作進一步評估和制定相關項目所須的沿岸防禦保護措施的細節及範圍。

 

學會認為,《明日大嶼》是有助解決土地和房屋供應問題,建立更美好生活環境 的主要政策之一。我們認為應以客觀及科學的方式,探討建造人工島的可行性 和成本效益。

學會未來亦會繼續以工程專業知識就《明日大嶼》提供意見,同時亦呼籲社會 各界應在其專業範疇發表意見,集思廣益,加強香港的固有優勢,共同建設一 個更美好的香港。

2 有關估算可能是引述美國商務部轄下美國國家海洋及大氣管理局(NOAA – National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration)於 2017 年發佈的報告。這推算是假設我們是在持續高温室氣 體濃度的情況下,即我們繼續按現時的生活方式,不加強減排措施,到了下一個世紀末(即 2200 年),平均海平面可能上升達 5.1 米。

The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers Response to the Chief Executive’s 2020 Policy Address

(Hong Kong, 26 November 2020) With regard to the 2020 Policy Address delivered by the Chief Executive yesterday, 25 November 2020, The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) holds the following views:

 

The HKIE welcomes the targeted and effective initiatives and measures as proposed in the 2020 Policy Address by the Chief Executive, particularly in areas of housing and land supply, transportation, building a green and liveable city, and innovation. The Institution is pleased to note that some of our earlier proposals in the strategic plan have been adopted by the Administration.

 

Hong Kong is facing a tough challenge in terms of land shortage, and the HKIE supports the multi-pronged approach in developing land resources. The Lantau Tomorrow Vision is one of the major initiatives to tackle the challenge to land and housing supply and build a better living environment. We suggest the Administration conducting relevant early studies on the engineering, financial, environmental and social risks against the benefits that may be generated including incomes from land sales, provision of developmental areas for commercial, education, recreation or innovation endeavours which may facilitate better understanding and deliberation of the public and obtain the land needed as early as possible.

 

To address the pressing need for more land resources in the short-to-medium term, the HKIE is pleased to note that the Administration has identified all of the 330 hectares of land required for providing 316,000 public housing units. The plans for redevelopment of Shek Lei interim housing, the Hong Kong Housing Authority (HKHA) factory estates and the Tai Hang Sai Estate may increase the supply of public housing, while the Siu Ho Wan Depot development and study on tenancy control of subdivided units may increase housing supply as a whole. The measures to make better use of vacant land and the premises to promote the development of transitional housing also help solving Hong Kong's housing problems in another aspect.

 

The HKIE welcomes the development of Tuen Mun West, for example the Tuen Mun – Chek Lap Kok Tunnel scheduled for commissioning at the end of this year, “Quota-free scheme for Hong Kong private cars travelling to Guangdong via the HZMB”, the MTR Tuen Mun South Extension, the development potential of the reclaimed land at Lung Kwu Tan and the coastal area at Tuen Mun West, and the review of the need for the River Trade Terminal, enhancing urban connectivity and alleviate the problem of land shortage in Hong Kong.

 

Regarding the development of the transport infrastructure, the HKIE is pleased to note that the Administration targets to push forward with the implementation of transport infrastructure projects, including the Tung Chung Line Extension, the Tuen Mun South Extension, the South Island Line (West) and the Northern Link. Also, the HKIE welcomes the comprehensive traffic and transport strategy study and the Strategic Studies on Railway and Major Roads beyond 2030 which will further improve the planning of large-scale transportation infrastructure and prepare for the long-term land development of Hong Kong.

 

In the area of infrastructure development, the HKIE is pleased to see the Administration’s continued investment in infrastructure projects with an estimated annual expenditure of over HK$100 billion on average in the next few years. The HKIE also agrees to the active implementation of “Construction 2.0” with the wider adoption of Innovation & Technology (I&T), for example, the highly effective Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) method. The HKIE believes that with the certain expenditure of the infrastructure development and implementation of “Construction 2.0”, the engineering profession will be more rejuvenated and therefore increase the employment opportunities as a whole, and attract more young professionals to join the engineering profession to contribute to society.

 

Decarbonisation is the key to build a liveable city, and the HKIE is pleased to note that the Administration strives to achieve carbon neutrality before 2050 and has allocated considerable resources to examining various means to reduce carbon emissions, including exploring different types of zero-carbon energy and decarbonisation technologies, enhancing the energy efficiency of buildings, promoting zero-carbon vehicles and green transportation, developing large-scale waste-to-energy facilities, supporting a low-carbon lifestyle and economic transformation, and various indispensable measures to promote the reduction of waste to the public.

 

In the area of I&T, the HKIE supports the Administration’s initiatives to develop Hong Kong into a smart city and looks forward to the upcoming launch of more than 130 smart city initiatives. Also, the HKIE welcomes the joint development of the Shenzhen/Hong Kong Innovation and Technology Co-operation Zone (SITZ), which comprises the Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Zone and the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park (HSITP) at the Lok Ma Chau Loop.

 

The HKIE hopes that the Global STEM Professorship Scheme, Greater Bay Area Youth Employment Scheme, Funding Scheme for Youth Entrepreneurship in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area and the Alliance of Hong Kong Youth Innovative and Entrepreneurial Bases in the Greater Bay Area will be successfully implemented to support Hong Kong youth to utilise their potential in the development of I&T, and seek long-term and better career development opportunities in the Greater Bay Area.

 

The Institution endeavours to provide our professional views and support along with our expertise to the Administration to proceed the policies and build a better Hong Kong together.

香港工程師學會《二零二零年政府施政報告》之回應

(香港,2020年11月25日) 就行政長官今日發表的《二零二零年施政報告》(下稱「施政報告」),香港工程師學會 (下稱「學會」) 有以下意見:

 

學會歡迎施政報告中提出多項針對性及具效益的措施,尤其在房屋及土地供應、交通運輸、建設綠色、宜居城市及創科等方面,當中採納了不少學會早前提交的建議。

 

香港土地短缺問題嚴峻,學會支持以多元模式開發土地資源,其中《明日大嶼願景》的發展有望應付未來的土地和房屋供應挑戰,建立更優質的生活環境。學會建議政府盡快就計劃進行各方面,包括工程技術、財務、環境、社會發展等相關研究,包括出售土地收入; 為商業、教育、娛樂或創新用途提供更多發展空間的可能性等,令社會各界對計劃有更全面了解,促進及達至社區不同持份者的共識,為香港早日獲得所需的土地。

 

為滿足土地資源於中短期的緊迫需求,學會欣喜知悉政府覓得興建316, 000個公營房屋單位的330公頃土地,重建石籬中轉屋、房委會工廠大廈及大坑西邨以增加公共房屋供應,發展小蠔灣車廠及致力研究「劏房」租務管制,並透過善用閒置土地及建築物,推動過渡性房屋發展,全方位去解決香港的房屋難題。

 

此外,學會認同政府積極開發屯門西部,如即將於今年年底通車的「屯門 — 赤鱲角隧道」及「大橋港車北上不設配額計劃」;規劃中的港鐵屯門南延線;就龍鼓灘近岸填海和屯門西沿海地區發展潛力進行規劃及工程研究,並藉以上研究檢視內河碼頭的需要,加強與市區的連接性,聯貫性地得以舒緩香港土地短缺問題。

 

交通運輸方面,學會支持政府推動交通基建,積極發展多項新鐵路項目,包括東涌線延線、屯門南延線、南港島線 (西段) 及北環線。同時,學會歡迎即將進行的全面交通運輸策略性研究及《跨越2030年的鐵路及主要幹道策略性研究》,冀研究能改善大型運輸基建規劃及為香港長遠土地發展做好準備。

 

要促進社會發展,基建為不可或缺的一環。學會樂見未來數年平均每年將有超過1,000億港元的基建項目。同時,認同政府積極落實「建造業2.0」,於工地引入更多創新科技,如高效「組裝合成」建築法。學會相信迎來這相當額度的基建投入及「建造業2.0」會令工程業生態更蓬勃、增加整體就業機會、吸引更多年輕專才加入工程專業貢獻社會。

 

要令香港成為宜居城市,減碳甚為重要。學會樂見政府朝着2050年碳中和的目標邁進,並積極研究各種減碳方法,包括研發不同零碳能源和減碳技術、提高建築物的能源效益、推動零碳車輛、綠色運輸、興建具規模的轉廢為能設施及發展綠色金融,以至推動全民減少廢物的各項措施亦是不可或缺。

 

創科為全球大趨勢,學會支持政府致力使用創新科技將香港發展成為智慧城市,期待即將推出超過130項的智慧城市措施。同時,樂見政府與深圳合作建設粵港澳大灣區國際科技創新中心,共同建設深港科技創新合作區的深圳園區和位於落馬洲河套的香港園區。

 

學會期望「傑出創科學人計劃」、「粵港澳大灣區青年創業資助計劃」、「大灣區香港青年創新創業基地聯盟」及「大灣區青年就業計劃」等倡議得以落實,可支持香港青年於大灣區發揮創科才能並能謀得長遠及更大的事業發展空間及機會。

 

學會將致力以工程專業知識及專長向政府提供相關意見得以實行所支持的各項惠民建議,與市民及各界一併前行,共同建設美好香港。

(Hong Kong, 7 October 2020) The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) strives to promote the engineering profession and support members’ professional development through different events and activities. The Institution held a Kick-off Ceremony entitled “Championing Innovation” on 28 September 2020 and introduced a series of events and activities for Session 2020/2021. The events and activities for the Session are all in line with the theme for the Session — “Believing is seeing – Innovation for transformation”. In this vein, the Institution will implement various initiatives to inspire innovation within the industry, encourage engineers to realise and commercialise their innovative ideas, help foster the innovation and technology (I&T) atmosphere and popularise the culture of I&T in Hong Kong at large.

 

The HKIE was honoured to have Ir Alfred Sit Wing-hang, JP, Secretary for Innovation and Technology, of the HKSAR Government as the Guest of Honour at the Ceremony. Ir Sit, together with Ir Ringo Yu Shek-man, the Immediate Past President of the HKIE; Ir Edwin Chung Kwok-fai, HKIE Senior Vice President; Ir Dr Barry Lee Chi-hong, HKIE Vice President, and Ir Prof P L Yuen, HKIE President announced the events and activities. President Yuen highlighted the theme of the Session by suggesting to members that, “You can improve the quality of life of society as long as you act with determination and a firm belief. To this end the Institution has outlined an innovation and I&T roadmap to provide strategic and targeted measures to support members”.

 

At the Ceremony, President Yuen thanked Ir Dr Ritz Lau Ming-ho, Ir Dr Li Chi-kwong and Ir Louis Yiu Yung-ngai for their sharing – the “Innovation Roadmap for Engineers”, which they prepared with a number of engineers with extensive experiences in their innovation journeys. The key stages highlighted in the Roadmap will enable members to foresee and better tackle the potential challenges in realising a career in I&T.

 

The HKIE was also honoured to have distinguished innovators Mr Stark Chan Yik-hei and Ir Dr Albert Ko Wing-yin to share their personal experiences on innovation and entrepreneurship at the Ceremony. Mr Chan and Ir Dr Ko talked about the challenges they encountered on their I&T journeys and the fulfilment obtained from their success. They also encouraged engineers who aspire to pursue an I&T career not to let their innovative ideas for society be hindered by any hurdles.

 

The Institution will establish an innovative entrepreneurial platform, “The Enginpreneurs Hub” for experience sharing. Activities include sharing sessions by I&T experts, entrepreneurial team matching and implementation support will be organised through the Hub. Together with the support by relevant government policies, I&T organisations, universities and tertiary institutions, and the ample opportunities in the Greater Bay Area, the effectiveness of developing a fruitful I&T career would be greatly enhanced.

 

The HKIE will organise an innovation expo, and various awards and competitions for members. The activities are all designed with an overall aim to provide support and encouragement for those who are considering to pursue the I&T and entrepreneurial path in their careers.

 

The HKIE hopes that the events for their 2020/2021 Session will contribute not just to helping engineers to innovate, but also to bring contribution to the economy, for the benefit of members, the industry and society at large.
