Leighton Asia wins Hong Kong road, bridge and tunnel contract

22 September 2010

Leighton Asia has won a US$ 172 million contract to construct the Central Interchange of the Central to Wan Chai Bypass (CWB) in Hong Kong.

Located in the heart of Hong Kong's commercial centre the contract comprises two bridges totalling 305 m-long, a 224 m cut and cover tunnel and a 116 m approach ramp as well as the realignment and reconstruction of existing roads and landscaping works.

The interchange links the existing elevated highway in the west to the tunnel already under construction on Leighton Asia's Central Reclamation Phase III contract.

The Central Wan Chai Bypass is an essential strategic East-West highway route for traffic between the Central Business District and the population centre in the Eastern part of the Hong Kong Island.

When complete traffic will bypass the heavily congested existing roads along the north shore of Hong Kong Island in the Wan Chai and Causeway Bay area.

Work is expected to start in September 2010 with scheduled completion in 2016.
