Date, time & venue

jointly organized with the Hong Kong Polytechnic University
The proposed Tuen Mun – Chek Lap Kok Link and Tuen Mun Western Bypass will provide the most direct route between the Northwest New Territories (NWNT) and Lantau, joining the Kong Sham Western Highway, the port back-up areas in the NWNT, the Tuen Mun River Trade Terminal, the Ecopark, the Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macao Bridge Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities, the Hong Kong International Airport (the Airport), the proposed Lantau Logistics Park and various North Lantau developments. Upon completion, the new route will significantly reduce the journey time between the NWNT and Lantau. The Project will release some capacity of the existing roads such as Tuen Mun Road, Ting Kau Bridge, Lantau Link and North Lantau Highway, offer strong support to the logistics industry and reinforce the Airport as an international and regional aviation hub through providing an alternative land access for the Airport.
Tuen Mun – Chek Lap Kok Link is a dual two-lane carriageway approximately 9km long, including a sub-sea tunnel about 5km to be constructed by large diameter Tunnel Boring Machines and reclamation for the tunnel portals; connecting Tuen Mun Western Bypass at Tuen Mun Area 40 inthe north; and with the proposed Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macao Bridge Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities, Hong Kong International Airport and North Lantau in the south.
The speaker will share with us the latest development of the TM-CLKL project. It will focus on how the engineering scheme is developed to cope with the stringent site constraints. The proposed construction methods and the challenges of the project will also be highlighted. The works contracts already commenced and forthcoming contracts will also be introduced.
