As Typhoon Hato moves towards Hong Kong few days ago, air pollution hit “serious” levels and temperatures soared to record highs. Patrick Fung, the Chief Executive of Clean Air Network, was interview on RTHK.

He explained that the main cause was roadside pollution, “Wind flow slowed down and trapped the vehicular pollutants in urban areas, resulting in serious roadside pollution.”  He suggested residents should do more to help improving the air quality, for example travel with smarter and cleaner transport, or avoid driving or parking in high population area.

Fung advised the government needs a well planning to develop Hong Kong as a cleaner and sustainable city in order to safeguard public health.
