The Transport Bureau (DSAT) will initiate the first phase of the Oriental Pearl Overpass project next month. This phase will consist of a pipe relocation in the area. After the relocation of the pipeline is completed, the rest of the overpass project is expected to take three to six months. By the end of this year or the beginning of next, the local government plans to start constructing two new public roads in Taipa along Av. Marginal Flor de Lotus. One will be located near the Rotunda da Piscina Olímpica, consisting of a 180-meter-long four-lane road going in both directions. The second road, to be located in the middle of the Av. Marginal Flor de Lotus, will be about 210 meters long and is designed as a two-lane road going in both directions.
Surveillance cameras proposed for Taipa-Houses Museum
During a symposium between the advisory committee of the islands and the Municipal Affairs Bureau (IAM), a local resident proposed the installation of CCTV surveillance cameras in the vicinity of the Taipa-Houses Museum. IAM president José Tavares said that the bureau will proactively consider the proposal, but he thinks the area has insufficient lighting. IAM will discuss the proposal with police and personal data authorities. In addition, IAM plans to provide 92 parking spaces for light-weight vehicles and 60 motorbike parking spaces at Av. Do Oceano.
Health Bureau warns of contaminated disinfectants
According to an announcement by the Hong Kong Department of Health, three disinfectants under the brand names “Pro-Medi Prosept,” “Kam’s KS-MED” and “CANCARE AntiSept Solution,” are suspected of being contaminated by bacteria. Macau’s Health Bureau has warned the public to avoid using these products. The germ suspected to have contaminated the products is Burkholderia cepacia. The Health Bureau recommends that residents with these products should contact their local pharmacists for further instructions. Burkholderia cepacia can be found in water, soil and humid environments. Individuals with weakened immune systems or chronic lung disease are more susceptible to infection. The bureau has conducted tests on the three disinfectants and will release the results once they are available.
