Construction of railway in congested urban area and in close proximity to existing railway in Hong Kong is always a challenge for engineers.  The subject in this seminar is to share the construction challenges that MTR has been facing in the current railway projects under construction in the past ten years.  This includes the complicated temporary traffic management system and the underpinning work for existing structures or railway tunnel, etc. on both the technical side and the community’s stakeholders side.  Real examples will be given together with discussion on the engineering solutions.
