Project Highlights

Gammon Construction subcontracted Kane Tunneling, a very experienced tunneling contractor, to drive the single tunnel at Tai Yam Teng.

The Penny's Bay Line will run between Yam O and Penny's Bay on Lantau Island, servicing the Disneyland Theme Park, which is expected to open in 2005/2006.

The contract involves the construction of a 120-metre-long cut-and-cover section and 710 metres of blasted rock tunnel. It also includes the construction of portal structures at both ends and an Emergency Vehicle Access Road to service the proposed station at Yam O. The work is scheduled for completion in September 2004.

The Company provided the traveling gantries, supervision and specialist support for the supply and application of the tunnel waterproof linings and associated works.
