Ramboll wins role on Hong Kong immersed tube tunnel

Ramboll has been appointed as geotechnical consultant for the immersed tube tunnel project on the Hong Kong metro’s North South Line.

The Cross Harbour Tunnel is part of the 17km-long Shatin to Central Link in Hong Kong, and is being designed by Aecom.

Ramboll was selected by PY Pun-KD, which is providing monitoring and verification services for the metro link to the Railway Development Office of the Hong Kong government.

The North South Line Cross Harbour Tunnel will be a 1.4km immersed tube tunnel crossing the Victoria harbour, located east of the existing cross harbour immersed tube tunnels. The tunnel will carry two tracks for metro trains.

Ramboll said it would draw on its expertise in immersed tube tunnels, such as the Fehmarnbelt between Germany and Denmark, and the Øresund in Norway.

“We are delighted to be participating in the prestigious project,” said Ramboll project manager Sijbrand Sterkenburgh.
