About this event

Hiram’s Highway Improvement Stage 1 works include improving two sections of Hiram’s Highway between Clear Water Bay Road and Pak Wai, the existing Ho Chung Road and Luk Mei Tsuen Road. The improvement works will relieve traffic congestion on the road section near Marina Cove, plus enhancing the safety and improving the accessibility to Ho Chung and Luk Mei Tsuen.

The project includes the construction of the carriageway, vehicular bridge-cum-walkway, footbridge, noise barriers, associated civil and road works and geotechnical works. On top of the wide variety of engineering solutions involved in this project, significant spatial constraints have posed complexity on the execution of the project. In this technical visit, participants will gain knowledge on how the project team overcomes these challenges, along with the technical aspects of the assembly of a steel arch bridge and the construction of slope works.
