Graduates and Students: Technical visit to Cross Bay Link, Hong Kong

About this event

Cross Bay Link, Tseung Kwan O

Cross Bay Link (CBL), Tseung Kwan O is a dual two-lane carriageway of about 1.8 kilometer long with a cycle track and a footpath, including an about 1.0 kilometer long marine viaduct across Junk Bay and an about 0.8 kilometer long Road D9, connecting Tseung Kwan O – Lam Tin Tunnel (TKO-LTT) currently under construction and Wan Po Road in Area 86 of Tseung Kwan O (TKO). The double-arch steel bridge of CBL is about 200 metre long, which is the longest arch bridge in Hong Kong.

CBL will provide an alternative access route to the south-eastern part of TKO, thereby enhancing the road network of the area. Upon completion of the project, traffic from the south-eastern part of TKO can commute to and from the western part of TKO via CBL, or commute to and from Kowloon East via TKO-LTT, without travelling through Wan Po Road and TKO town centre. Hence, the traffic load to these roads could be relieved.

Through the technical visit, participants will be able to visit the project site by a boat trip, understanding the concept and principle behind the design and construction of the arch bridge and associated works, which will then be a monumental landmark in Hong Kong.
