Hong Kong, 24 February 2022 — The government signed a cooperation agreement for eight projects to construct community isolation and treatment facilities.

The Development Bureau announced that the Architectural Services Department had signed a cooperation agreement with the China State Construction International Holdings Limited regarding eight projects to construct community isolation and treatment facilities. The eight projects, to be funded by the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government, are distributed across the following locations:

  • Penny’s Bay
  • Former runway area of Kai Tak
  • Tam Mei, Yuen Long (private land lent by Sun Hung Kai Properties)
  • The former site of The Boxes, San Tin (private land lent by Sun Hung Kai Properties and Henderson Land Development)
  • Hung Shui Kiu, near Kai Pak Ling Road
  • Tsing Yi Town Lot No. 200
  • A site located in Fanling North New Development Area, next to Ma Sik Road, Fanling (private land lent by New World Development)
  • A site on the south-eastern part of the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities Island of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, north of Tuen Mun Chek Lap Kok Tunnel Road
  • The two sites in Fanling and the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities Island of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge are newly identified.

The HKSAR Government expresses gratitude to the developers for lending private land for free, including New World Development for lending the new site in Ma Sik Road, Fanling; Sun Hung Kai Properties, and Henderson Land Development for lending two sites announced earlier. The sites have been swiftly handed over to the construction teams so that construction works can be kick-started as early as possible.

The HKSAR Government and the construction teams are taking forward the construction projects at full speed and communicating closely on the detailed design and scale of the projects. The target is to maximise the site utilisation and complete the relevant works as soon as possible, equipping Hong Kong for the fight against the epidemic. — Construction+ Online
