Date, time & venue
(Jointly organized with Environmental Division of HKIE)
The project involves upgrading the flood protection standards in northern Hong Kong by
building a 11km main drainage tunnel extending from Tai Hang to Cyberport. There will
be 34 stormwater intakes and a total of about 8km of adits connecting the intakes with the drainage tunnel. The drainage tunnel will intercept stormwater collected from Mid-levels and discharge it into the sea directly, to alleviate flooding in the lower catchment of Northern Hong Kong Island. The main tunnel was constructed with two double shield
Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM). The adits are currently constructed by drill and blast
technique with the majority of the intake drop shafts being constructed by raise boring
method. Attendees to this technical site visit will have an opportunity to gain insights into
the ongoing construction works.
