Hong Kong’s MTR Corporation has awarded a design consultancy contract to Aurecon-WSP Joint Venture for the Hung Shui Kiu Station on the Tuen Ma Line. This new station will serve the future transport needs of the Hung Shui Kiu/Ha Tsuen New Development Area, bringing convenience to residents and reducing travelling time.
The scope of the consultancy work includes development of the scheme into an engineering design, preparation of the construction programme, gazette plans and project cost estimate, as well as liaison with government departments and other stakeholders. The Aurecon-WSP Joint Venture will work closely with the MTR Corporation’s Capital Works team to deliver these services.
According to MTR Corporation, the award of this contract marks a major milestone for the Hung Shui Kiu Station project. It will be situated at the future town centre of the Hung Shui Kiu/Ha Tsuen New Development Area and will provide residents with railway connection to other areas in Hong Kong.
The new station will not only serve the future transport needs of the Hung Shui Kiu/Ha Tsuen New Development Area, but also release the development potential in the vicinity. The team will maintain ongoing dialogue with the community during the design and construction of the project.
Other works relating to the Hung Shui Kiu Station project, including ground investigation and survey of existing utilities, will also commence soon.
In May this year, the Hong Kong Government invited MTR Corporation to proceed with the detailed planning and design of the project. It consists of a new Hung Shui Kiu Station, located on the Tuen Ma Line between the existing Tin Shui Wai and Siu Hong stations. The main construction works are expected to commence in 2024 for completion in 2030.
