Just out of curiosity I am wondering how this is going to work? Surely, when you get birders going to the gate every 5 minutes before rising tide or receding tide the police are going to be VERY busy? I can imagine a huge line building up between police arrivals and also people being locked inside having to wait till police arrive so they can get out? And think of the potential danger this put birders in...when huge line of birders try to get to the hide asap after the police open the gate and a lot of people getting onto the floating bridge at once...I can foresee some pretty obvious disasters and accidents awaiting to happen...

This is just absurd unless there is a very good reason for it!!!

I hope that this is only an interim arrangement during the hot summer period and that things will go back to normal when the next birding season comes.
During this off peak season for migratory waders, there may only be a few birders going to the boardwalk on a single day.  If the gate is locked back immediately after a birder has gone out, and the birder is the last one staying on the boardwalk and then his mobile phone runs out of battery, how can he contact the Police to open the gate for his return?  By jumping and waving his hands in front of the CCTV camera?

咁係唔係有警察廿四小時在閘外站崗? 閘內外是否有固網電話/對講機服務可接警方?

既然是警方通知,鎖閘原因及何時重開可以請鳥會詢問嗎?

First of all, this is good news!
Secondly, I doubt if anyone should contact the Police to open the gate for entry to the boardwalk during the period of 18:00 to 05:59, as the Closed Area Permit for access to the Lok Ma Chau Closed Area has stated a valid time limit of the permit, which is 06:00 to 18:00 (for my own permit and I believe it is the same for others').  When it is outside this time limit, the permit is not valid.
