$1BN HKMOA RENOVATION FAILS TO PROVIDE BIKE PARKING SPACES

A day of culture: we visited the renovated Hong Kong Museum of Art (HKMoA), fresh from its 4-year, HK$1bn renovation… unfortunately, cyclists are not welcome, with nary a bike parking space for half a kilometre around.

Explaining the reason for shunning bikes, Connie Lee, Senior Manager (Art) at the HKMoA, said there was a heavy pedestrian flow every day, and that “most of the Piazza areas have been designated as hiring venues and restriction free emergency vehicular access”.

Nevertheless, a quick scout around the area shows at least a couple of viable spots for a bike rack – there is also a huge underground carpark for staff and performers which has potential for bicycle parking.
