The MTR Corporation announced the award of a design consultancy to AURECON-WSP Joint Venture after the tender process to carry out the planning and design for Hung Shui Kiu Station of the Tuen Ma Line. The project will serve the Hung Shui Kiu/Ha Tsuen New Development Area (NDA).
The consultancy scope includes the scheme’s development into an engineering design, preparation of the construction programme, gazette plans and project cost estimate, and liaison with government departments and other stakeholders. The JV will work closely with the corporation’s capital works team to deliver the consultancy.
According to MTR Corporation, the contract marks a significant milestone for the Hung Shui Kiu Station project. The new station on the Tuen Ma Line will be situated at the future town centre of the Hung Shui Kiu/Ha Tsuen NDA and will provide residents with a railway connection to other areas in Hong Kong. It will serve the future transport needs of the Hung Shui Kiu/Ha Tsuen NDA and release the development potential in the vicinity. The team will maintain an ongoing dialogue with the community during the design and construction of the project.
In May 2021, the Government invited the corporation to proceed with the detailed planning and design of the Hung Shui Kiu Station project, located on the Tuen Ma Line between the existing Tin Shui Wai and Siu Hong stations. The main construction works are expected to commence in 2024 for completion in 2030. Other works, including ground investigation and survey of existing utilities, will also commence soon.
