IACM seeks to start “three lamps”
The Civic and Municipal Affairs Bureau (IACM) said yesterday it was seeking to start the redevelopment of the “three lamps” area as soon as possible.
The head of IACM, Tam Vai Man, said after meeting civic groups at IACM head office in Av. Almeida Ribeiro, that the authority had finished initial preparations for the re-development and would seek to start the project as soon as possible.
He said after negotiating with representatives from the three lamps area, both sides agreed that the redevelopment should be implemented without blocking the way for emergency vehicles such as fire services, and that there should not be hawkers vending at the entrances of residential buildings.
In addition, the current shopkeepers also wanted to be relocated to the same area if they are affected by the construction works. Tam said they would finalise the details after further co-ordination with shopkeepers.
Some shopkeepers, however, complained of insufficient consultation by the government over the project.
