Central–Mid-Levels escalator and walkway system
The Central–Mid-Levels escalator and walkway system connects with Central Elevated Walkway from Central Ferry Piers, Hong Kong to SoHo, Hong Kong within Central, Hong Kong. It is the longest outdoor covered escalator system in the world. Engineered by French company Constructions industrielles de la Méditerranée the entire system covers over 800 metres (2,600 ft) in distance and elevates over 135 metres (443 ft) from bottom to top. It was constructed in 1993 to provide a better commute by linking areas within the Central and Western District on Hong Kong Island.
