Current Progress:

The construction works for WDII commenced in December 2009. . The WDII works at Wan Chai would be implemented under six CEDD works contracts. Four works contracts were awarded since end 2009 and two of them were substantially completed in July 2013 and May 2016. The implementation plan of the remaining two works contracts would be determined to dovetail with the planning and developments in the Wan Chai areas.

The reprovisioning works required for the land formation have been completed and commissioned, including the permanent government helipad, WSD’s salt water pumping station, new Wan Chai Ferry Pier and cooling water pumping systems.

In December 2015, the land formation works for the construction of Central-Wan Chai Bypass (CWB) were completed. Sections of the CWB tunnel structures at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre and Wan Chai East have been handed over to Highways Department (HyD) for carrying out subsequent works. Construction of remaining sections of CWB tunnel structures within the project area is in full swing. Furthermore, some land parcels have also been handed over to HyD for the construction of Shatin-Central Link (SCL). The road works necessary for enabling the commissioning of the Central – Wan Chai Bypass would be completed in the first quarter of 2018.
