Programme Highlights

To ease the pressure on developed areas and the land demand arising from population growth, the development of Kwu Tung North (KTN) / Fanling North New Development Areas (FLN NDA) was listed as one of the major infrastructure projects. Capitalising on its strategic location in proximity to Ng Tung River with a succession of grassy, hilly terrain to the north, the FLN NDA is proposed to be developed as a ‘Riverside Community’ making the best use of its beautiful riverside scenery and hilly backdrop to create a comfortable living environment with a mix of residential, retail and services and agricultural uses, community and government facilities.

 

Fanling Bypass Eastern Section is one of the key road infrastructures to support the population intake and meet the traffic needs in the FLN NDA, which provides a direct bypass linkage between the proposed FLN NDA and the Fanling Highway. It is a 4 km long dual two-lane carriageway comprising of viaduct, at-grade road and underpass.

 

The works of Fanling Bypass Eastern Section are being carried out by two Contract Nos. ND/2019/04 (C4) and ND/2019/05 (C5). The scope of C4 contract mainly consists of construction of an approximately 2km long viaduct, at grade road and underpass between Shek Wu San Tsuen North to Lung Yeuk Tau, junction improvement works and construction of sewage pumping station and stormwater pumping station. The works in C5 contract mainly comprises construction of an approximately 2km long dual two-lane viaduct between Shung Him Tong and Kau Lung Hang, realignment of the existing Tai Wo Service Road East, Tai Wo Service Road West and Fanling Highway and construction of approximately 2.4km long noise barriers. The construction of C4 and C5 contracts commenced in mid-August 2020 and early March 2020 respectively.

 

Through the technical visit, participants will be able to visit site area of C4 & C5 of the project, understanding the development of the KTN/FLN NDA, bridge construction works and building works (sewage pumping station and stormwater pumping station).

Site Visit - Central Kowloon Route – Central Tunnel (Contract No. HY/2018/08)
25 June 2022

Date and Time:

Date - 25 June 2022 (Saturday), 09:30am –11:30am

 

Venue:

Ma Tau Kok Community Liaison Centre, 12, Long Yuet Street, To Kwa Wan

 

Programme Highlight:

Central Kowloon Route (CKR) is a 4.7km long dual 3-lane trunk road linking the existing Yau Ma Tei Interchange in West Kowloon with the road network of the Kai Tak Development and Kowloon Bay in East Kowloon, forming a trunk route through Central Kowloon. CKR will provide an alternative express route to relieve the traffic congestion on the major east-west corridors. Upon completion of CKR project, the journey time between West Kowloon and Kowloon Bay would take around 5 minutes, representing a reduction of about 25 minutes in comparison to that without CKR.

 

Central Kowloon Route – Central Tunnel (CKR-CT) (Contract No.: HY/2018/08) is one of the major contracts under CKR project. The works mainly comprise the construction of an approximately 2.8-kilometre dual 3-lane CKR central tunnel; the construction of approximately 41 metres and 33m cut-and-cover tunnels in Yau Ma Tei and Ma Tau Kok respectively. The forecast total of the costs is about HK$6.226 billion.

 

This technical visit will be jointly held by HKIE Civil Division and The Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT) Hong Kong Branch, and will begin with a brief introduction of the CKR project at Ma Tau Kok Community Liaison Centre and followed by a site walk to the drill-and-blast tunnels and access shafts at Ma Tau Kok.  A Q&A session will be hosted by the project team after the site walk.
