Planners are considering bulldozing the bus terminal at Star Ferry in Tsim Sha Tsui and using the prime waterside location as a plaza and tourist attraction.

The Planning Department, Environment, Transport and Works Bureau and Star Ferry yesterday said the proposal was being considered. But critics warned it could cause transport havoc in the area.

The bus terminal site covers more than 60,000 sq ft. Under the initial plan, it would be relocated to east of Tsim Sha Tsui to integrate with rail services after the extension of the East Rail from Hunghom to Tsim Sha Tsui.

The site would be turned into an open plaza providing retail and shopping spaces and a venue for public performances. It is also proposed that feeder buses be provided to serve any future bus terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui east.

Professor Patrick Lau Sau-shing, president of the Hong Kong Institute of Architects, yesterday warned that relocating the bus terminal could cause a major inconvenience to bus and ferry passengers.
