Gammon – Kaden Joint Venture wins a HK$3.4 billion contract to construct Hung Hom North Approach Tunnels for the Shatin to Central Link

20 Dec 2012

Gammon – Kaden Joint Venture has been awarded a HK$3.4 billion contract by the MTR Corporation to construct the Hung Hom North Approach Tunnels of the Shatin to Central Link.

The project mainly involves the construction of a running tunnel connecting the existing East Rail Line to the Hung Hom Station and another connecting the future Ho Man Tin Station to the Hung Hom Station, having a total length of approximately 1 km. It will be constructed by cut-and-cover method with foundations formed on piles.

Other major works include re-provisioning of railway operational facilities, noise enclosure at the south of Tunnel 1A, demolition and reconstruction of Chatham Road Bridge; slope work at Oi Sen Path and underpinning of Hung Hom Bypass bridge.

As construction will take place in a highly urbanised environment, it will require extensive utilities and temporary traffic diversions.

In a joint statement, Thomas Ho, Chief Executive of Gammon Construction, and Derek Zen, Director of Kaden Construction, expressed their excitement about winning this challenging contract. “The Joint Venture is particularly delighted that our technical competence and reputation for excellent quality have enabled us to win this prestigious contract. We are committed to working together with our business partners to ensure the delivery of the project to the highest quality, while maintaining excellent standards of safety."

Work on the project is due to start in December this year and will be completed in 2018.

A workforce of over 400 will be engaged at the peak of the project’s construction period.
