The East Vent Shaft (“EVS”) under the Central and Wan Chai Bypass and Eastern Corridor Link (“CWB”) is located at the end of the eastern breakwater of Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter which is the heart of the northern shore of Hong Kong Island facing Victoria Harbour. To make it the key attraction of the Victoria Harbour and blend in with the surrounding environment, the Highways Department held a series of roving exhibitions in 2010 on the exterior design of the EVS to collect public opinions. In addition, the Working Group on Waterfront Development in Eastern District under the Eastern District Council organized an Exterior Design Competition of the EVS of the CWB in 2011 and the creative and aesthetically pleasant designs raised by the public became key design ideas of the final design of the EVS. As the EVS will soon be completed and put into service, the project team held an EVS Switch-on Ceremony at the works site of the CWB in North Point on 25 October 2018.The project team invited the district councillors of the Wan Chai District Council and Eastern District Council to participate in the event so as to thank the district councils for their continuous support over the years. The design features, operation and functions of the EVS was also introduced to them in order to demonstrate the efforts of CWB in urban development and beautifying the environment.
