Gammon wins bridge contract at Hong Kong International Airport

Gammon Engineering & Construction Limited (‘Gammon’) has been awarded the work contract of the Intermodal Transfer Terminal - Bonded Vehicular Bridge and Associated Roads (Contract C19W10) for Airport Authority Hong Kong.

The scope of works predominantly consists of construction of a bridge that will connect the two islands accommodating Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) and the boundary crossing facilities for the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB). Roads and ancillary buildings will also be built under the contract. This project will facilitate a bonded vehicle service for transit passengers from Macao and Pearl River Delta travelling abroad via HKIA, and vice versa.

Thomas Ho, Chief Executive of Gammon, said: “We are delighted to be working again with Airport Authority to deliver this important piece of infrastructure at the airport. Gammon is in the unique position of possessing relevant and recent experience in marine viaduct construction within the vicinity of both the airport and HZMB boundary crossing facilities, providing us with a number of advantages when operating in this sensitive area.

“Our delivery of marine viaducts for the Tuen Mun-Chek Lap Kok Link Southern Viaduct has demonstrated that we could meet the strict airport height restrictions and increased security arrangements in an area of heavy marine traffic, without affecting the progress of the works.”

The construction company’s experience in marine viaduct construction also enabled it to offer a number of alternative construction proposals designed to provide cost and time-saving benefits for the Intermodal Transfer Terminal Bonded Vehicular Bridge, as well as improve safety and quality.

A comprehensive digital representation of the works will be created first, before on-site activities begin, to facilitate full stakeholder engagement on methods and planning and provide an asset-rich data model that will be included as part of handover.
