Balfour JV bags £223M Hong Kong road job

NCE stock roads

A joint venture between Gammon Construction and Sanfield has won a £223M road widening contract in Hong Kong. Gammon is half owned by Balfour Beatty.

The Sai Sha widening project will involve widening a section of the current road from two lanes to dual two lanes, development of a cycling track and installation of noise barriers.

The works also include implementation of greening works to compensate for trees affected by the project, construction of three footbridges and extensive water and sewage utility provisions including two pumping stations.

The installation of sewage pipes by Tunnel Boring Machine along the existing roads 2.1km north of the project to the Ma On Shan area are also part of the scope of works.

A range of innovative solutions will be deployed on the project including 4D Building Information Modelling (BIM) for the construction of the pumping station, and the exploration of using offsite modular construction techniques on the electrical and mechanical works.

Other innovative solutions will include drone and 3D land surveying techniques to monitor the 4.1km-long site area.

Gammon chief executive Thomas Ho said: “The Sai Sha Road widening project builds on Gammon’s extensive experience and expertise of similar contracts in Hong Kong including the widening of Tolo Highway and the reconstruction and improvement of Tuen Mun Road.

“Gammon’s expertise will ensure the efficient and safe delivery of this key infrastructure project for Hong Kong.”
