HKIA Teams With Tung Chung Residents to Beautify Tunnels and Rain Shelters

The displays comprise five mosaic murals converted from five original drawings selected during the HKIA-Tung Chung Drawing and Colouring Competition - a community caring programme held last August to celebrate HKIA's 10th anniversary - along with dozens of other drawings, which are housed in 14 show boxes at seven rain shelters.

The beautification works took three and a half months to complete, and they included converting the chosen drawings into 96,000 pieces of mosaic tiles to decorate the Shun Tung Road pedestrian tunnel and adding the show boxes along Man Tung Road.

The competition was jointly organised by the Airport Authority Hong Kong, Tung Chung Safe and Healthy City, Islands District Office of Home Affairs Department and Community Investment and Inclusion Fund. Around 1,300 submissions were collected, many of which featured famous icons of HKIA and Tung Chung, such as the curving roof of HKIA's Terminal 1, the airport's air traffic control tower, the Ngong Ping cable car and Giant Buddha.
