River Training Works

 The usual capacity of a natural river is roughly sufficient only to meet a biennial flood. In order to increase its capacity to meet the flood under design extreme events, the river needs to be trained by straightening, widening and provision of linings.

Training of the section of Shenzhen River between Ping Yuen River and the estuary, Ng Tung River in Sheung Shui, Shan Pui River in Yuen Long and Kam Tin River were completed.
