Smoking ban extensions


WE THANK Mr Kammo Liu ("Review location of smoking 'oases'"; Forum Online, Nov 26). The smoking prohibition will be extended next month to all covered walkways and linkways, including those mentioned by Mr Liu.

The existing ban on smoking at bus stops will also be extended to include a 5m radius from the bus stop.

The National Environment Agency will work closely with the respective facility managers to put up adequate signage to inform their customers, staff and visitors not to smoke at these areas, and to ensure that the smoking prohibition law is adhered to.
