Press release 16/03/2001 00:00 CET

Skanska Construction’s Hong Kong-based company, Gammon Construction, has won a £116 million contract to build a station depot on the island’s Ma On Shan Rail scheme.

The two-year contract at Shatin Tai Wai includes constructing the sub-structures and superstructures of the Tai Wai Depot.

Constructed entirely with reinforced concrete on bored piles and pre-bored piles, the depot project includes all mechanical and electrical installations; internal roads; and ancillary buildings. Gammon will also fit-out the depot ready for use by the client, the Kowloon Canton Railway Corporation.

Above ground Gammon will construct a car park slab at podium level, leaving the area ready for future development.
