With the contract of greyhound stadium operator Companhia de Corridas de Galgos Macau (Yat Yuen) set to expire in July of next year, legislator and executive director of the local gaming operator Sociedade de Jogos de Macau, Angela Leong On Kei, told the press that the operator has not received notice from the government requesting the initiation of exit procedures and guidelines for co-ordination, TDM Radio News reported.
Leong divulged that despite the tender opened to study uses for the property that future plans for the venue were still uncertain.
The tender for the study of potential uses for the track area was awarded to City Planning & Engineering Consultants Ltd., at a cost of MOP1.45 million and set to last 203 days, information on the Land, Public Works and Transport Bureau website reveals.
On the other hand, Leong claimed that gaming operators would be capable of co-ordinating with the government, if needed, to transform the shuttle parking area next to the Border Gate into a temporary bus terminal, with prerequisites that the transformation would benefit travellers and is feasible.
Speaking on TDM radio programme Macao Forum, Leong added that shuttles operated by gaming operators provide alternative transportation for residents apart from only carrying tourists.
In addition, she commented that the government should be more specific when drafting the bill to regulate whether gaming workers can enter casinos during non-working hours, providing more details on areas such as penalties. She urged that the bill not discriminate against gaming workers who want to be entertained in casinos.
