Project Background


The Harcourt Road fresh water pumping station is one of the key installations of the water supply system supplying fresh water to Central, Wan Chai, Mid-level and Peak areas. To maintain the fresh water supply to these areas, Water Supplies Department (WSD) aims to relocate and integrate the pumping station to Lockhart Road Playground whilst providing new recreational facilities to meet the interests and needs of the Wan Chai community. This will create a new outlook of Lockhart Road Playground (the Project).

Key areas of the Project include:
  • Revitalise the Lockhart Road Playground
  • Improve local connectivity to create a harmonious environment
  • Promote sustainability
  • Achieve BEAM Plus Neighbourhood & New Buildings certification
