CEDD signs contract for Tung Chung New Town Extension - Reclamation and Advance works


Hong Kong (HKSAR) -      The Civil Engineering and Development Department today (January 10) signed a contract of about $12,076 million with Build King-SCT Joint Venture for reclamation works in Tung Chung East and advance works for the Tung Chung New Town Extension (TCNTE) project.

     The TCNTE is the first new town extension project via reclamation since the completion of the last new town development projects in Tseung Kwan O and Tung Chung by reclamation in 2003. The project is also one of the major initiatives under the Government's multi-pronged approach to increase land supply in the medium to long-term. It will provide about 49 000 residential flats and about 870 000 square metres commercial floorspace, accommodating a population of about 140 000 and creating 40 000 job opportunities. The reclamation at the Tung Chung East is the main part of the extension project, providing 40 000 new flats to meet future needs for housing and economic developments.

     The main objective of the works is to provide land in phases, with a view to having the first population intake in 2023.

The contract mainly comprises reclamation of the seabed at Tung Chung East by non-dredging methods to form a total of about 130 hectares of land; construction of seawalls with an eco-shoreline; construction of a multi-cell drainage box culvert; provision of infrastructure for Tung Chung Area 58; and implementation of the associated environmental mitigation measures.

     The works commenced on December 29, 2017 for completion in 2023.

     Details of the Tung Chung New Town Extension project are available at the project website (file:///C:/Users/FLOREN~1/AppData/Local/Temp/AppData/Local/Temp/notesC7A056/www.tung-chung.hk/" target="_blank">www.tung-chung.hk).
