Received this from Designing Hong Kong
I think this started as a response to the idiotic suggestion by a town planner to remove trams from Hong Kong to make it more car-friendly.

Sign Petition to Pedestrianize Des Voeux Road Central

Click here to support the petition to rezone Des Voeux Road Central (DVRC) to a Pedestrian Area with an environmentally friendly transport system.

Clean Air Network, Designing Hong Kong, Friends of the Earth (HK) and The Conservancy Association have submitted a section 12A application to the Town Planning Board. They propose a pedestrian precinct where promenades, planting, entertainment and community activities can be accommodated.

A strip along the centre of the DVRC would be reserved for environmentally friendly transport – including trams and electric buses. The roads that cross DVRC including Rumsey Street, Wing Wo Street, Jubilee Street, Pottinger Street and Pedder Street will remain open so that traffic can connect between Queen’s Road Central and Connaught Road Central.

Des Voeux Road Central (DVRC) as a tram and pedestrian precinct would become an important public open space and a vital east-west pedestrian link for all who work in or visit the Central Business District of Hong Kong.

The West Island MTR line has recently opened, and the Central-Wanchai Bypass and the MTR’s South Island Line and Sha Tin to Central railway will also be opened soon. These provide a window of opportunity to re-arrange traffic, address congestion, and reduce roadside noise and air pollution in Central.

The deadline for your support for our petition calling on the Town Planning Board to rezone Des Voeux Road (DVRC) to open space with an environmentally friendly public transport system is 16 October 2015. For the formal application, click here.
