Turn DVRC into an inviting destination
德輔道中 塑造成具吸引力的地方
A pedestrianised zone in the heart of the city can make for a destination, a street, people want to go to, not just through1. When enjoying the place, people tend to stay longer, increasing the likelihood of spending. A transformation of Des Voeux Road Central, the historically valuable but congested core of the CBD, into an inviting destination, could help promote sustainable competitiveness for the local retail scene and beyond.
At the same time, a better linkage of multiple attractions through pedestrianization can meet the requirement of convenience, as it should make it much easier to get around.

在市中心設立一個行人專用區,可以令該處變成一個鼓勵人停留的地方而非只是經過的街道。如果大眾開始花更多時間留在行人專用區,他們消費的可能性便會增加。所以,改造歷史悠久但極其擠擁的 德輔道中 成為引人入勝的地方,可以提高當區零售店舖的可持續競爭力。

Pedestrian precinct offers overarching benefits


The report cites that the existing proposal to transform the historically valuable Des Voeux Road Central in the heart of Hong Kong’s CBD into a pedestrian and tram precinct, can not only prevent a further decay of the district, but also offer overarching benefits that go beyond DVRC itself. 

報告指改造位於香港核心商業區的 德輔道中 成為行人及電車專用區,不單只能活化區裡的環境,亦能為不同層面帶來好處,達到雙贏的效益。

With improved walkability, residents and tourists can walk to the future Central Harbourfront development with ease. The enhanced connectivity, along with better signage, should also make it more convenient to use the Central ferries to access the upcoming West Kowloon Cultural District.


“It’s about time”

In Colliers view – now is a good time to start implementing a new pedestrian precinct in DVRC. In terms of traffic, the newly launched Central -Wan Chai Bypass and Island Eastern Corridor Link should ease traffic in Central.

高力國際 研究員認為現在是於 德輔道中 實行行人優先道路的好時機,特別中環灣仔繞道的落成,有望分流中環的交通,令計劃的可行性提高。

The planned “Sheung Wan Fiesta,” a 90-day trial, where parts of DVRC would be closed to traffic is a great way of warming residents and businesses to the new concept.

為期90日的《上環樂》計劃,將 西港城 至 禧利街 路段禁止車輛行駛,實行行人優先道路。計劃將為該區的居民及商家帶來一番新景象。
