Container Terminal 10
Turning to the port, the latest forecast shows that container throughput will continue to increase in the future after reaching a handling capacity of 24 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of containers last year. The Government has been identifying suitable locations for the development of Container Terminal 10 to meet this demand.
Two sites have been identified initially. Extensive reclamation is required for the site at Northwest Lantau, which may affect the ecological environment. Consequently, the Government will study the other site at Southwest Tsing Yi. Although this site will require the relocation of the existing oil depot, it can achieve synergy with the container terminals in Kwai Chung and Tsing Yi.
