physical constraint on expansion
Physical Constraint on expansion
  • Steep relief:
  • limited flatland
  • River channel:
  • restrict further reclamation
  • Country park/Nature reserve:
  • environmental conservation
ways to gain land
Ways to Gain Land
  • Sea reclamation:
  • straight coastline
  • Leveling of hill slopes:
  • road cuttings at 1181, 1079
  • Conversion of farmlands:
  • Cultivated land near Prince of Wales Hospital
modification on shing mun river
Modification on Shing Mun River
  • straightened river channel:
  • straight shoreline
  • narrowed:
  • with reclamation
  • reduced and regular river discharge:
  • the building of the Shing Mun Reservoir
modification on shing mun river1
Modification on Shing Mun River
  • inflow of sea water:
  • reduced discharge
  • polluted river water:
  • industrial areas and residential areas
drainage pattern
0678

lower drainage density

flowing northwestwards

dense vegetation cover

flow into reservoirs

protected within the country park

no settlements

less footpaths/less compaction

no pylons/electric wire towers

0878

higher drainage density

flowing southeastward

sparsely vegetated

flow across farmlands

not within country park

more settlements

more footpaths/more compaction

with pylons

Transect
land acquisition
Land Acquisition
  • leveling of slope because of presence of artificial slopes, proximity to foothill 
  • Kam Ying Court(155822)
  • Saddle Ridge Garden(156824)
  • Reclamation because of proximity to coast, straight shoreline 
  • Fok On Garden(145824)
  • Bay Shore Towers(150825)
is ma on shan self contained
Is Ma On Shan Self-contained ?
  • Ma On Shan is not much self-contained.
  • Residential accounts for the dominant land use (probably coupled with some retailing, small-scale commercial & recreational)
  • while other major land uses, such as industrial, business & large scale commercial are lacking.
  • Therefore there are not enough employment opportunities.
  • There are not enough social and public facilities, e.g. there is no hospital.
human impact on stream flow
Human Impact on Stream Flow
  • Deforestation leads to the reduction of infiltration
  • Farming irrigation at Mau Ping(160780) and Mui Tsz Lam(152788)
  • Water for domestic uses by the villagers of the settlements (161799)
  • Mining activities(163801)
  • Construction of catchwater and water tunnel (grid square 1579)
environmental destruction
Environmental Destruction
  • Soil erosion
  • Pollution of streams
  • Air and noise pollution
  • Affect channel flow because of
  • Deforestation
  • Quarry and cutting of slopes
  • Debris dumping
  • Transport of ores
  • Domestic wastes of the miners
government measures
Government Measures
  • incorporate it into Ma On Shan Country Park
  • change it into a cultural, historical recreational landmark
  • re-afforestation under the country park planning
  • restore scenic beauty
  • reduce soil erosion and pollution
