Scott Wilson wins Shatin to Central Link design package

MTR has awarded Scott Wilson a design package on the Shatin to Central Link, a strategic rail link connecting the North East New Territories with Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.

The company is responsible for the detailed design of extensive upgrades at nine existing stations on the Ma On Shan Line to cater for eight-car trains and a new above-ground station at Hin Keng.

It will also carry out detailed design of a new viaduct and about 120m of cut and cover tunnel running from Hin Keng Station to a long tunnel under Lion Rock.

“This is another important contract win for our international regions. It is testament to the strong relationship we have developed with MTR following the South Island contract win and it reinforces our position to deliver multi-million pound high profile and strategically important infrastructure projects in the region,” said Scott Wilson’s chief executive Hugh Blackwood.

The contract will commence on 3 May.

The contract follows MTR Corporation’s appointment of Scott Wilson last year to design the South Horizon Station, Lei Tung Station and Tunnels for the South Island Line in Hong Kong.
