Development Secretary Bernadette Linn says the reconstruction of Pak Kok Pier on Lamma Island has been completed and it will reopen on Monday.
It is the first project under the government's Pier Improvement Programme for upgrading public piers in remote rural areas.
Writing on her blog, the minister noted that there was only a simple berth at the old pier, while the new one is equipped with two berths and wave reducing boards to make vessels more stable and ensure the safety of passengers getting on and off.
Linn said a lot of precast concrete was used in the construction process and this can help minimise the impact of tides and protect workers' safety. She added that the improved ferry pier also features solar panels, wifi, a drinking fountain and charging facilities.
The development chief added that the reconstruction of the remaining 22 piers under the programme will be finished in phases from 2024.
