ICE HKA G&S Technical visit to Kai Tak Nullah, Hong Kong

About this event

Participants will visit Contract No. DC/2011/04– Kai Tak Development – Reconstruction and Rehabilitation of Kai Tak Nullah. It will be a technical site visit for young engineers to learn about the reconstruction and upgrade of Kai Tak Nullah (KTN), which would be revitalised into an attractive green urban river corridor to provide space for leisure and public activities serving the community.

The project aims to improve the drainage capacity of the existing KTN to withstand flooding with a return period of one in 200 years and mitigate the flooding risk to the surrounding areas. Also, it will upgrade the existing KTN to a green river with special character and townscape features.

The project scope comprises the following:

  1. Reconstruction and upgrade of the section of KTN of about 1300 metres within Kai Tak Development Area into a combination of a drainage channel and multi-cell box culverts
  2. Construction of two enclosed desilting compounds
  3. Ancillary works including landscaping works

The project began construction in January 2013 for phased completion by 2018.

When visiting Kai Tak Nullah, participants will explore and identify the technologies applied in the works.
