Construction Works Schedule and Location Plans for Tung Chung New Town Extension
(EP No. EP-519/2016)
The development of the Tung Chung New Town Extension (TCNTE), comprising Tung Chung East (TCE) and Tung Chung West (TCW), is a mega-scale and complex project aiming to provide land to meet the future housing, economic and social development needs of Hong Kong. Due to the fact that the proposed works are geographically separated, the implementation of the mega-scale Project is divided into two packages, namely TCE and TCW respectively. In accordance with the tight delivery programme, the Project will be implemented in phases under separate contracts for the developments of TCE and TCW.
Scope of Works for Tung Chung New Town Extension
The Tung Chung New Town Extension project (the Project) comprises the following elements:
(i) reclamation of the seabed by a non-dredged method at TCE to form a total of about 130 hectares of land;
(ii) construction of about 4.9 kilometres of seawalls, with an eco-shoreline, three drainage box culvert outfalls, three circulation drains and a seawater intake at TCE;
(iii) construction of a 470-metre (m) long multi-cell drainage box culvert at TCE;
(iv) provision of infrastructure for Tung Chung Area 58, including construction of a single two-lane road with a footpath of about 270 m in length and the associated utility works;
(v) site formation works for about 10 hectares of land at TCW;
(vi) construction of roads, footbridges, drainage, sewerage, waterworks, sewage and salt water pumping stations, fresh water and salt water service reservoirs, and flood protection measures;
(vii) provision of new cycle tracks connecting to the existing cycle track network;
(viii) provision of a river park adjacent to a portion of Tung Chung River and de-channelisation of a section of Tung Chung River at TCW;
(ix) landscaping, reprovisioning and ancillary works; and
(x) implementation of environmental mitigation measures and environmental monitoring and audit works.
The Contract No. NL/2017/03 – Tung Chung New Town Extension – Reclamation and Advance Works (i.e. Contract 1) at TCE has been awarded in December 2017 and is scheduled for completion in end 2023. The main contractor for Contract No. NL/2017/03 is Build King – Samsung C&T Joint Venture (BKSCTJV).
The site formation and infrastructure works at TCE and TCW are under detailed design and CEDD will seek funding from the Legislative Council in phases to tie in with population intakes.
