About this event

There are four Boundary Control Points (BCP)s in the HKSAR providing vehicular crossing at the Hong Kong – Shenzhen boundary currently, namely Shenzhen Bay, Lok Ma Chau, Man Kam To and Sha Tau Kok. On the eastern part of the boundary, the existing vehicular crossing points at Man Kam To and Sha Tau Kok have already reached their limits in the crossing capacity, while scope for the expansion works to enhance their capacities is limited by site constraints and capacity of connecting roads on both Hong Kong and Shenzhen sides.

It is anticipated that the volume of cross-boundary traffic will continue to increase with the closer ties of Hong Kong- Shenzhen and the completion of the Eastern Corridor in Shenzhen. The establishment of a new BCP in the eastern part of Hong Kong-Shenzhen boundary is thus required to meet the future traffic demand and re-distribute cross-boundary traffic amongst the crossings in the east.

The project (Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai Boundary Control Point and associated works - site formation and infrastructure works) mainly comprises site formation of about 23 hectares of land for provision of Boundary Control Point (BCP) buildings and associated facilities, construction of about 11km long dual 2-lane Connecting Road linking up the BCP with Fanling Highway, design and construction of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region portion of vehicular bridges and pedestrian bridge crossing Shenzhen River, associated diversion/modification works at existing local roads and junctions, drainage, sewerage, waterworks and landscaping works.

The works in Contract 3 (Contract No. CV/2012/09) include construction of an interchange with four viaducts near Kiu Tau, Fanling for the connecting road to the Boundary Control Point, widening of a section of the Fanling Highway of about 1 km long near the interchange, demolition of the existing Kiu Tau Vehicular Bridge, re-provisioning of the existing Kiu Tau Footbridge, realignment of the existing Tai Wo Service Road West and Tai Wo Service Road East, and associated slope, drainage, sewerage, water, and landscape works.

The bridge superstructure constructs by precast reinforced concrete segment and application of post-tensioning prestress technology. A combination of internal and external tendons prestressing systems has been adopted to reduce amount of tendon embedded into concrete, and so to achieve sequent with light unit weight. Balanced cantilever erection method is adopted for the erection of the precast segment, which are placed into position by mobile lifting frames OR cranes and wet-joined using epoxy glues.

This technical visit will start with a brief introduction of CV/2012/09 project and then followed by a site walk.

Gathering Point: Kowloon Tong MTR station (TBC) (Shuttle Bus will be provided from Kowloon Tong MTR station to the site).

Remark: All participants should prepare their Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) (including safety shoes, helmets and reflective vest).
