Shek O Quarry Rehabilitation Achievement
Shek O Quarry is located on the south-eastern part of Hong Kong Island on the western side of D'Aguilar Peninsula, next to Shek O County Park. This Quarry started its operations in 1964 and by 1980s, a large change on the land form of the western face of D'Aguilar Peninsula has been created. in the 1990s, after subsequent consultation with the Government, an agreement led to the approved Landscape master plan for the rehabilitation of the Quarry.
The overall objective of the rehabilitation works was to create a landscape that can evolve into a kind of advanced ecological community found on the adjacent native slopes with similar flora and fauna.
The rebabilitation works was successfully completed in 2010 and the site of Shek O Quarry was handed over to the Government CEDD. We believe this rehabilitation project will create long term benefits to the community.
