Restricted area and closure of landing steps at HKCEC
Thursday, June 29, 2017, Hong Kong
From 0600 hours on 29 June to 1800 hours on 1 July, a restricted area will be established in Victoria Harbour off the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) as part of the security and public safety arrangement in connection to the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR.

The Restricted Area is formed by straight lines joining the following co-ordinates (WGS 84 Datum) from (A) to (D) and the adjacent shoreline:
(A) 22 deg. 16.978’N / 114 deg. 10.172’E
(B) 22 deg. 17.200’N / 114 deg. 10.245’E
(C) 22 deg. 17.198’N / 114 deg. 10.584’E
(D) 22 deg. 16.991’N / 114 deg. 10.585’E

Two yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid at co-ordinates (B) and (C) to indicate the northern boundary of the Restricted Area. Launches of the Marine Police will be stationed or patrolling in the vicinity of the Restricted Area.

During the aforementioned period, no vessel, other than Government launches, or franchised ferries will be allowed to enter or remain within the Restricted Area; and the public landing steps near Bauhinia Square will be closed to all vessels, except Government launches engaged in official duties.

Masters, coxswains and persons-in-charge of all vessels navigating in the vicinity should keep away from the Restricted Area. Coxswains of small vessels are advised to make use of other public landing steps during the closure period.
