Gammon Wins HK$2.38 Billion Contract to Widen Tolo and Fanling Highways

Gammon is honoured to be awarded a HK$2.38 billion contract to widen a section of the Tolo and Fanling Highways for the HKSAR Highways Department. The widened highway, upon completion, will help alleviate the traffic congestion problem and to meet the future traffic demand on the Tolo Highway leading to the Fanling Highway.

The 40-month contract, due to commence in late February 2010, will involve the widening of a 3.5 km long section of the Tolo and Fanling Highways between Ma Wo and Tai Hang. It requires converting the existing dual 3-lane carriageways to dual 4-lane carriageways.

The project scope includes modification and demolition of five existing bridges and the construction of eight vehicular bridges including all associated interchanges and utilities. The contract also requires a 12-month maintenance period of the widened road.

Commenting on the contract awards, Thomas Ho, Chief Executive said:

"We are excited to be awarded this contract and taking part in enhancing the quality of life of people residing in the North-east New Territories. We are fully committed to the challenges ahead and are confident that we will safely deliver the project in highest quality and within the construction programme."

To minimize impacts to the environment, in additional to standard measures to reduce noise and air pollution, special features such as recycling of demolition materials to reduce disposal to landfill and deploying the demolished bridge sections to create an artificial reef will be undertaken.

Gammon will also provide a comprehensive Temporary Traffic Arrangement (TTA) system to maintain the busy traffic at Tolo Highway during the construction period.
