A Mouchel/Halcrow joint venture is tackling a major slope stabilisation programme in Hong Kong as part of the US$345M Castle Peak Road Improvement. The project includes the widening and improvement of a 6.5km section of the single lane Castle Peak Road up to dual carriageway. New sections of carriageway call for 60m high slopes to be carved into the steep hillside between the existing coast road and the higher ground inland. New structures include seawalls, retaining structures and viaducts. The scheme is due for a mid 2005 completion date for the client, HKSAR Highways Department, Major Projects Office.
