The project of Central - Wan Chai Bypass and Island Eastern Corridor Link (CWB) is a strategic road along the north shore of Hong Kong Island to alleviate the traffic congestion along the existing Gloucester Road - Harcourt Road - Connaught Road Central corridor.  The scope of the project including but not limited to construction of tunnel, roads, administration building, ventilation buildings, ventilation shaft, earth retaining structures, electrical and mechanical works (E&M) and traffic control and surveillance system (TCSS), drainage works, landscaping work, etc. Upon project’s commissioning, it will only take about five minutes to travel from Central to Island Eastern Corridor at North Point.


Our members may take this valuable opportunity to have more understanding on infrastructure projects and associated E&M systems. Before the site visit, a brief presentation would be delivered by AECOM’s representatives, covering the areas of project scope, construction technology adopted (such as construction of cut-and-cover tunnel and diaphragm wall) and difficulties encountered, etc.
