香港工程師學會 港珠澳大橋人工島防波堤之回應

(香港,四月十一日) 香港工程師學會 (下稱「學會」) 關注近日媒體報導有關港珠澳大橋人工島防波堤的情況,並正密切留意事態發展。

 

港珠澳大橋工程連接四大人工島 (香港口岸、珠澳口岸及海底隧道東、西出入口人工島) 及三地口岸,並有海底隧道連接部分人工島。人工島沿岸防波堤設計上利用弱波石 (又稱「外扭工字塊」) 作保護;弱波石間存有空隙,用作吸收海浪的能量,避免海浪直接衝擊海堤。另外,弱波石亦被用作沉管隧道的防護層。

 

於海洋中進行大型建造工程,事前必須對實地環境作詳細勘察,收集足夠數據並作出分析及工程計量,進行多方面的模擬及評估,以制定符合要求的建築及工程設計。學會明白公眾就於港珠澳大橋東人工島所拍攝的照片而對人工島及海底隧道的安全情況有所疑慮。然而,學會認為在判定設計是否安全及有否偏差前,必須先掌握足夠資料以作出有系統的分析,故不能單靠照片及推測而作出未經證實的結論。

 

學會留意到路政署經了解和實地視察後,工程的實地建成情況與施工圖設計脗合。為進一步加強公眾對港珠澳大橋工程及日後運作的信心,學會建議當局可考慮與各持份者多加溝通,增加透明度以釋除公眾疑慮。

The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers
Launch “Smart Tomorrow, Engineers’ Motto” Programme Promote Smart City Development in Hong Kong

 

(Hong Kong, 22 March 2018) The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) will launch the ‘Smart Tomorrow, Engineers” Motto’ Programme in April 2018. The programme is designed to support the government’s policy objective of developing Hong Kong into a smart city,

 

The key event will be an engaging interactive exhibition showcasing the engineering profession’s distinguished achievements in smart city development. This will enable the public to experience the convenience and improvement to living brought about by innovation in engineering and technology. It is hoped that the event will not only raise public awareness of the vital role engineers play in enhancing our quality of life, but also inspire young people to have an interest in engineering, thereby fostering a new generation of talent for the industry.

 

Ir Thomas CHAN Kwok Cheung, the President of the HKIE, said, “Many cities around the world have adopted technological innovation as the key strategy to increase their competitiveness. Last year, the HKSAR government put smart city development into its policy agenda with a vision of making Hong Kong a world-class smart city.”

 

“Hong Kong enjoys an advantage in talent development. Grooming young engineers is also one of the HKIE’s key long-term initiatives. We actively support STEM education in schools to help young people unleash their potential to innovate.”

 

“The ‘Smart Tomorrow, Engineers’ Motto” programme is thoughtfully designed to enable youngsters to learn more about the dynamic and meaningful aspects of engineering, while also shedding light on how the industry creates long-term value for our community by bringing positive changes to our living through innovation.”

 

Ir Dr YUEN Pak Leung, the Vice President of the HKIE cum Chairman of the Organising Committee for the Programme, said, “To realise the Smart City Blueprint for Hong Kong, we must nurture more young engineers who are enthusiastic and willing to tackle complex challenges. The HKIE hopes that the government will continue to support the industry in research & development with the introduction of various cutting-edge technologies into Hong Kong. Consideration should also be given to assigning regular funding for schools and other stakeholders to promote STEM education and foster more talents in the engineering and creative industries, so as to speed up developing Hong Kong into a world-leading smart city.”

 

“By leveraging on our expertise in engineering, the HKIE will continue to contribute in the development of Hong Kong and the nurturing of talents in the engineering and technology professions to build a smart future with Hong Kong citizens,”

 

Details of the “Smart Tomorrow, Engineers’ Motto” Programme:

 

“Smart Tomorrow, Engineers’ Motto ” Exhibition (please refer to Appendix 1 for details)

The exhibition focuses on three major aspects of a smart city. All exhibits originate from the creative ideas of engineers in putting together a picture of smart living in Hong Kong’s future. “Smart Education” demonstrates how digital technologies can be used to enhance learning interest and effectiveness. “Smart Health” showcases a number of innovations in health technology which help people live healthier and better lives, so as to prepare for the challenges of an aging population. The content in “Smart Use of Resources”, meanwhile, highlights contributions to environment protection and sustainable development.
