HKA Technical Visit: Tung Chung New Town Extension

About this event

The TCNTE is the first new town extension project via reclamation since the completion of the last new town development projects in Tseung Kwan O and Tung Chung by reclamation in 2003. The project is also one of the major initiatives under the Government's multi-pronged approach to increase land supply in the medium to long-term. It will provide about 50,000 residential flats and about 877,000 square metres commercial floor space, accommodating a population of about 146,000 and creating 40 000 job opportunities. The reclamation at the Tung Chung East is the main part of the extension project, providing 41,000 new flats to meet future needs for housing and economic developments.

The main objective of the works is to provide land in phases, with a view to having the first population intake in 2023-2024. The contract mainly comprises reclamation of the seabed at Tung Chung East by non-dredging methods to form a total of about 130 hectares of land; construction of seawalls with an eco-shoreline; construction of a multi-cell drainage box culvert; provision of infrastructure for Tung Chung Area 58; and implementation of the associated environmental mitigation measures.

With the technical visit, visitors would learn the technique and construction method of ground treatment, land reclamation and seawall construction.
