Transport operator MTR Corporation has awarded the contract forming part of the South Island Line (East) Project to the UK-led joint venture which also contains local firm Kaden.
The firms will deliver Contract 901 at Admiralty station.
The new interchange station will provide a convenient link between the new South Island Line (East) and the existing Island Line as well as the Tsuen Wan Line, with provision for integration with the proposed Shatin to Central Link.
Four new platforms will be constructed below and adjacent to the existing station. The works also include an interchange concourse, relocation of existing passenger entrances and external landscaping.
Laing O’Rourke SE Asia Managing Director Mike Robins said, “As part of Laing O’Rourke’s strategy to build enduring relationships with prestigious global organisations, we are delighted to showcase our capabilities to the MTR Corporation on the new project.
“Hong Kong offers huge opportunities for growth in rail infrastructure, and we are honoured to work with them in this challenging environment.”
The contract was won against strong international competition following a two stage tender process. The joint venture partners will be working with the MTR team as a single delivery entity.
