CEDD awarded contract for Cross Bay Link, Tseung Kwan O – Main Bridge and Associated Works
The Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) awarded a contract at a sum of about $2,586 million in end June 2018 to China Road and Bridge Corporation for the construction of main bridge of Cross Bay Link, Tseung Kwan O.
At present, Wan Po Road is the only road linking the south-eastern part of Tseung Kwan O (TKO) to other areas. The Cross Bay Link project will provide an alternative access route to the south-eastern part of TKO, thereby enhancing the road network of the area. Upon completion of the project, traffic from the south-eastern part of TKO can commute to and from western part of TKO via Cross Bay Link, or commute to and from Kowloon East via the Tseung Kwan O – Lam Tin Tunnel currently under construction, without travelling through Wan Po Road and the TKO town centre.
This contract mainly comprises the construction of about a 1-kilometre long marine viaduct across Junk Bay and the associated civil, structural, marine, electrical and mechanical, landscaping and environmental protection and mitigation works.
The construction works is scheduled for completion in 2022. Information of the CBL project is available at http://www.cbltko.hk/.
