Arup and Mott MacDonald win Hong Kong road and tunnel

A joint venture of Arup and Mott MacDonald have been awarded design consultancy and construction supervision contract for the Central Kowloon Route (CKR) highway and tunnel in Hong Kong

The CKR scheme will comprise a dual 3-lane east-west trunk road across central Kowloon of approximately 5km length and a dual 3-lane tunnel of about 3.9km long.

The works will include two major interchanges, cut-and-cover tunnels, building reprovisioning, a section of underwater tunnel and a 3.9 km long rock tunnel.

Mott MacDonald Hong Kong managing director KM Yeung said the company was delighted to be involved.

“This highway and tunnel scheme will be a strategic part of Hong Kong’s Route 6 highway network and will be key to relieving traffic congestion in Kowloon,” he said.

Arup director and East Asia Highways business leader David Pegg said he hoped the strategic highway would “maximise social and economic benefits with positive impact on the daily lives of the local community”.
