The pedestrian tunnel at Guia Hill is expected to see its final design by the end of this year, according to the Land, Public Works and Transport’s (DSSOPT) reply to lawmaker Lam Lon Wai.

Parking lots planned next to AL
Shenzhen Yee Fung Automation Technology Co. is going to build a parking lot near Macau’s Legislative Assembly (AL). Currently, the project has not started. It is undergoing a preparation and design process. According to Chen Pingan, director of the company, each parking space will cost between RMB80,000 and RMB150,000 to build. He believes that the parking lot will benefit Macau. Since 1996, when the company launched its parking equipment business, its products were mainly sold to mainland China, with only 5% of the company’s products sold outside of the country.
