Hong Kong construction boom poised to begin

Hong Kong’s government is pumping billions of pounds into transport infrastructure to help its economy weather the effects of the global recession.

Several major transport projects are poised to start this year and are focus of a major conference in Hong Kong at the end of the month.

At Urban Infrastructure 10, senior executives from rail operator MTR will set out plans for a high speed rail link to mainland China and for a series of extensions to the existing metro system.

Highways Department officials will also detail plans for the massive Hong Kong-Zuhai-Macau bridge across the Pearl River delta. NCE is media partner for the event. Next month it plans to publish a Hong Kong special feature on the market and on projects now underway in the region.
