Work on a private development above Ho Man Tin Station has been suspended, after settlement readings there exceeded a pre-set trigger point, the Buildings Department said late on Friday.

Readings at the subway connecting Chung Hau Street, Fat Kwong Street and Ho Man Tin Station reached 21 millimetres on Thursday — one millimetre above the trigger level.

Government staff were sent to inspect the works, and confirmed that the railway’s facilities and operations weren’t affected.

Construction work there will resume once the development has proposed suitable mitigation measures.
