The worth HK$5.67bn (£594m) contract for the Highways Department’s Central Kowloon Route Works include the construction of tunnel ventilation and administration buildings as well as the delivery of mechanical and electrical works.

The Central Kowloon Route is a 4.7km dual three-lane road designed to enhance connectivity between the East and West Kowloon districts whilst relieving congestion.

Gammon is also constructing the Kai Tak West section of the Central Kowloon Route, which includes underwater and cut-and-cover tunnels, as well as roads.
