About this Project
South Island Line East is a 7km long medium capacity railway connecting Admiralty Station to the Southern District of Hong Kong. Contract 904 involved the construction of 1.2km of tunnels and two underground stations (Lei Tung and South Horizons) located on Ap Lei Chau. The tunnel spans, constructed with drill and blast, mechanical excavation and cut and cover techniques, varied from 7 m to 17 m, with a 25 m wide by 22 m high station cavern at Lei Tung.
CDC prepared claims for delay, disruption and extensions of time on the station structure and shaft excavation works for the negotiation of a supplemental agreement. CDC assisted the contractor in the preparation for a mediation preparing position papers and advising the Contractor on mediation strategy. The dispute was settled through negotiation prior to the mediation hearing.
