Shatin to Central Link SCL 1122: Admiralty South Overrun Tunnel

18 Feb 2017

IOM3 Hong Kong Branch Technical Visit


The Shatin to Central Link (SCL) is a strategic railway line that stretches from Tai Wai to Admiralty, connecting several existing railway lines and passing through multiple districts in Hong Kong. It will serve the areas in East Kowloon where are currently not covered by any railway services, and helps to strengthen the linkage between the New Territories and Hong Kong Island. The railway line will also provide convenient interchanges with other railway lines in aid to facilitating passengers to travel within the current railway MTR network.

The approximate 700m Admiralty South Overrun Tunnel is southernmost extent of SCL and is located at the south of Hong Kong Park Ventilation Building (HKB). Works of Contract 1122 include the construction of horse-shoe shaped bifurcation, tunnel fan niche structure and single track turnback tunnel by drill and blast method; construction of secondary structures in the overrun tunnels such as plenums, side walls, corridor walkway and all related fitting-out works.

The participants would be furnished with a presentation of project brief and followed by a site walk introducing the construction status and actual site works for a drill and blast tunnel from an existing MTR Ventilation Building.
