Gammon Wins Contract to Reconstruct and Improve Tuen Mun Road - Eastern Section

Gammon is delighted with great honour to be awarded the contract to reconstruct and upgrade Tuen Mun Road - Eastern Section. Valued at HKD 2.82 billion, the contract is Gammon's largest Civil solo project and is scheduled to be completed in September 2013.

The contract requires reconstruction and re-alignment of the Eastern Section of Tuen Mun Road between Tsuen Wan and Tsing Lung Tau, to meet current expressway standards. The works include widening of traffic lanes to expressway standard width, provision of hard shoulders and verges, construction of highway structures, and the associated environmental mitigation measures, drainage, slope and landscaping works.

With the upgrading of traffic lane width and the addition of hard shoulders at both bounds, road safety and the contingent measures upon traffic incidents will be highly enhanced. Consequently, traffic conditions will be improved in both directions of Tuen Mun and Tsuen Wan, particularly during peak hours.

Gammon believes that key factors that led to its win are the company's advanced technological standards and expertise in highway construction and routine maintenance work.

Thomas Ho, Chief Executive of Gammon said, "The reconstruction and improvement project is a challenging one as the Tuen Mun Highway is one of the busiest highways in the territory, with slopes at the roadside that have to be dealt with care. We shall work closely with government departments and keep stakeholders informed on the project in order to lessen the impact on them."

Gammon in recent years has successfully completed significant highway projects requiring high level of technical proficiency such as the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Western Corridor and the Deep Bay Link – Northern Section.
