Work on Hong Kong station set to resume after 7-week hiatus

Hong Kong

October 01, 2018 – Construction is set to resume of a Hong Kong station where excessive settlement brought work to a halt in August.

Hong Kong’s Highways Department has agreed to the Mass Transit Railway Corporation’s proposal to resume work on the Exhibition Centre Station on the Shatin to Central Link.  Updated settlement trigger levels will be introduced.

The excavation works have been suspended since 10 August, as some parts of the settlement monitoring points installed in the vicinity of the works sites exceeded the pre-set trigger level

The decision to restart work was made after considering comments from stakeholders, including the relevant departments and utility undertakers, and MTR Corporation’s confirmation that the move will not compromise public safety, said the Transport & Housing Bureau in a statement.
