Full project details

In joint venture, Laing O’Rourke is delivering a HK$2.4 billion extension to the South Island Line (East) in Hong Kong.

With partners Kier and Kaden, Laing O’Rourke will deliver key infrastructure for Admiralty station, forming another significant part of MTR’s plans to extend and improve the Hong Kong railway system.

The new interchange station will provide a convenient link between the new South Island Line (East) and the existing Island Line as well as the Tsuen Wan Line, with provision for integration with the Shatin to Central Link. In addition to the four new platforms that will be constructed below and adjacent to the existing station, the works include an interchange concourse, relocation of existing passenger entrances and external landscaping.

The MTR network typically carries an average of four million passengers each day, with the Tsuen Wan Line alone designed to carry up to 85,000 passengers per hour. Admiralty station will remain open throughout the four year construction programme.

As well as substantial operations in Hong Kong and Mainland China, the MTR Corporation is a successful global rail infrastructure operator, with interests in Australia, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

The contract was won against strong international competition following a two stage tender process. The joint venture partners will be working with the MTR team as a single delivery entity.
