Bouygues Construction has won a contract worth HK$ 5.2 billion (roughly €490 million) from MTR Corporation for the construction of 2×2 tunnels that will form part of a 6-kilometre extension of the Shatin to Central Link.
These tunnels are among the major infrastructure projects currently under way in the city, connecting tourist sites and the financial district. The two eastern tunnels, each approximately 540 m long, will run from the south ventilation building and the new Exhibition station on the Shatin to Central Link.
The two western tunnels, each approximately 450 m long, will be bored between the Fenwick Pier emergency egress point and the existing Admiralty station. Bouygues Construction will also construct the ventilation building.
