The Government announced that the compulsory testing exercise and enforcement operation for Fu Keung House in Tai Wo Hau Estate finished today with no positive COVID-19 cases found.   It made a restriction-testing declaration yesterday evening, requiring people in the specified area to stay in their premises and undergo mandatory testing. About 1,150 people were tested.   In the subsequent enforcement operation, about 335 people’s test records were checked. Twenty-four people were found to have not received compulsory testing.   Government staff also visited around 720 households in the area, of which 40 did not answer the door. Such households are urged to contact the Government promptly to arrange testing.   According to the compulsory testing notice issued yesterday, those who had stayed in Fu Keung House within a specified period for more than two hours must get tested by tomorrow even if they were not in the restricted area when the declaration took effect. http://dlvr.it/

Park’s mega component arrives

The first large-scale prefabricated segment of the roof structure for the Kai Tak Sports Park’s main stadium was shipped from Zhongshan to Hong Kong today, signifying that the sports park project will enter a new stage of construction, the Home Affairs Department announced.   The main stadium can accommodate 50,000 spectators. Its roof is mainly supported by four sets of main steel trusses with spans ranging from 150m to 180m. The trusses are divided into two to five segments each for ease of transportation for subsequent assembly at the park site.   The main steel truss comprises many large circular hollow sections, with the diameter of the largest section up to 1.6m. Advanced technologies such as building information modelling (BIM) and design for manufacture and assembly, together with computer-controlled welding machines, are used in the prefabrication process to enhance the quality of work and speed up production.   In addition, the project team has used BIM for design visualisation to facilitate the enhancement of the design and construction processes.   The Kai Tak Sports Park, scheduled for completion in the second half of 2023, will be the largest sports infrastructure in Hong Kong. It will provide modern and multipurpose facilities for sports and recreation to enhance the city’s sports culture.   Pearl of the Orient has been adopted as the main stadium’s facade design theme. The venue’s retractable roof and flexible design will enable events of different scales, including international football and rugby matches, concerts and large community events, to be held.
