Hong Kong - Arcadis was responsible for the detailed design of a new MTR underground station and over-run tunnel to be constructed as part of the Kwun Tong Line Extension.
Connecting commuters in densely developed urban area
It was built 25 metres beneath the busy streets of Hong Kong’s second largest private housing estate. The station design has a single platform, two concourse areas and a 100m long connecting platform tunnel.
The challenge would be to minimise street-level construction impact as the station is located within rock and mixed ground conditions located close to residential tower blocks and major utilities. Arcadis’s work also included re-configuration of an existing footbridge across Hung Hom Road and the design of major utility and traffic diversions.
Our partnering approach enabled rapid design decisions during the extremely tight design program and public consultations and workshops helped garner community support during the design process. The traffic deck system kept everything running smoothly throughout the construction works. The original scheme was streamlined minimizing construction waste, construction work on site and reducing the overall footprint of the station.
