Gammon Wins Kai Tak Contract

Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, today announces that their 50:50 Far East joint venture, Gammon Construction, has been awarded two contracts worth a total value of £705 million.

The first award is for £568 million contract for the Highways Department of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region to construct the Kai Tak West Section of the Central Kowloon Route in Hong Kong.

The Kai Tak West Section contract forms a vital part of the 4.7km-long dual three-lane Central Kowloon Route.

The works mainly comprise the construction of a 370m long underwater tunnel and the associated temporary reclamation in Kowloon Bay of about three hectares, a 160m long cut and cover tunnel in Ma Tau Kok as well as a 125m long road and a 170m long underpass in Kai Tak Development.

The contract is due to start early this year and with completion scheduled in 2025.

The second award is for £137 million contract for the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA) in Hong Kong to deliver the extended basement and public infrastructure works called the ‘L1 Contract for the Lyric Theatre Complex and Extended Basement at WKCD’.

This contract involves excavation followed by the construction of a two-level reinforced concrete structure, public infrastructure works including drainage and a traffic lay-by with associated temporary works.
