Balfour Beatty’s south-east Asian joint venture Gammon Construction has landed two infrastructure contracts in Hong Kong worth HK$7.7bn (£705m) combined.
The larger of the two deals covers the HK$6.2bn (£568m) construction of new highway to deliver the Kai Tak West section of Hong Kong’s Central Kowloon Route.
Gammon will build a 370 m-long underwater tunnel in Kowloon Bay, as well as a 160 m cut-and-cover tunnel in Ma Tau Kok, a 125 m road and a 170 m underpass in the Kai Tak Development.
Balfour said it will start work this year and complete the project by 2025.
The contractor’s other deal is for a HK$1.5bn (£137m) basement extension and public infrastructure works package for a cultural quarter in the region (pictured).
The work, carried out on behalf of the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA), includes the construction of a two-level reinforced concrete structure, as well as drainage and a traffic lay-by.
The JV has already delivered the foundation works for this project, the main construction of which will commence early this year and complete in mid-2020.
In August, Gammon won the race to build a HK$3bn (£295m) high-rise residential scheme on Hong Kong’s waterfront.
A month earlier the JV sealed a HK$2bn (£200m) deal to build a water park in the region.
