Gammon, 50% owned by Balfour Beatty, has won a £407M contract to build two stations and a running tunnel for Hong Kong’s MTR Corporation in a joint venture with Nishimatsu Construction Co.
The £407M (HK$4.75bn) project will be to build stations at Hong Kong University and Sai Ying Pun and a 2.2km running tunnel.
The work will form a prominent part of the West Island Line which, when complete in 2014, will extend the existing Island Line from Sheung Wan to Kennedy Town.
This is Gammon’s third contract on the West Island Line project, following awards for Kennedy Town Station and the construction of a temporary underground magazine in 2009.
Balfour Beatty Chief Executive, Ian Tyler, said the project plays: “An integral part in the creation of the West Island Line, a project which will have significant benefits for the community in the western part of Hong Kong island.”
