TEC to advise Chinese Government on Hong Kong - China megalink

The Chinese government has chosen an international consortium of consultant to advise it on the design and construction of the 35 km long bridge/tunnel megaproject linking Hong Kong, Macao and the Chinese mainland.

The project, in the delta of the “Pearl river”, comprises a series of conventional bridges and cable bridges, a number of islands to be newly created and a 6 km immersed tunnel. The design is already in full swing and construction is to begin at the end of this year. The intention is for the connection to be put into service at the end of 2015.

The consortium comprises American and Chinese engineering agencies and Tunnel Engineering Consultants (TEC), a permanent joint venture between Royal Haskoning, DHV and Witteveen & Bos. It will provide the client with advice on design, implementation, sustainability, costs, planning, management and maintenance throughout the entire project.

TEC has been involved in the project since the beginning. Along with an American partner it has been conducting the assessment of the conceptual design of the bridges, tunnel and islands, which was created by a Chinese agency with the support of other international parties.
