Hong Kong metro operator MTR Corporation has this week awarded contractor Balfour Beatty a £270M contract to construct two new tunnels.
The firm will construct two running tunnels covering 1km of track that connects the East Rail Station to Hung Hum Station and Hung Hum Station to the future Ho Man Tin Station in the province.
The contract has been awarded to Hong Kong-based Gammon Construction, which Balfour Beatty has a 50% stake in, worth HK$3.4bn (£270M) to work on a major section of the Shatin to Central Link.
The project is a joint venture with Kaden Construction. Work is due to start this month and be completed in 2018.
