    Bridge to Zhuhai and Macau / School bullying

    On Thursday's Backchat we're talking about the estimated cost overrun of nearly $12 billion for construction of the bridge to Zhuhai and Macau. It's thought that local taxpayers may have to meet about half of that amount, under a funding agreement between Hong Kong, the mainland and Macau. The Transport and Housing Bureau says rising costs of labour and material, as well as design changes, have caused the project to go over budget, and it'll be seeking Legco approval for the extra money required. But legislators are calling for a detailed explanation, and have warned officials be prepared for "lots of questions" when the matter comes before the council. What do you make of this? Leave us a message, or email us at backchat@rthk.hk, or call us on 23388266. After 9.20, school bullying.

    Public Open Space in Hong Kong / Electric Cars in the Budget

    ​On Wednesday's Backchat, open space. A report from Civic Exchange suggests that nearly two million of us in Hong Kong are living with less than the planning standard of two square metres per person. In cities like Tokyo, Seoul, Shanghai and Singapore, residents get between 5.8 and 7.6 square metres. This is outdoor space managed for recreational purposes - mostly urban parks and sitting out areas. Is it reasonable to expect more? What are the benefits of open space? Will we get it on the Central reclamation, in West Kowloon and Kai Tak? After 9.20, electric cars and the budget.  (8:30-9:30am, call in on 233 88 266, email backchat@rthk.hk or text 6393 5925)
