Balfour Beatty secures multi-million pound Hong Kong government project
London-headquartered infrastructure group Balfour Beatty has landed a Hong Kong contract worth around £577m.
The firm’s 50:50 joint venture Gammon Construction has been awarded a HK$5.67bn contract to deliver buildings, mechanical and electrical works on the Central Kowloon Route, which will link the city of Hong Kong to Kowloon Bay.
Working on behalf of the Highways Department of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, the venture will work on the construction of the Kai Tak West Section of the 4.7km route, which includes underwater and cut-and-cover tunnels as well as roads.
Thomas Ho, chief executive of Gammon, commented: “We are delighted to be working with the Government’s Highways Department again on this vital piece of infrastructure for Hong Kong.
“Our experience and expertise in delivering complex mechanical and electrical works continues to grow, and we look forward to further strengthening our reputation through the safe and efficient execution of this contract.”
