     The Highways Department and Fugro Geotechnical Services Ltd signed a contract today (November 23) to carry out ground investigation for the Hong Kong - Zhuhai - Macao Bridge (HZMB) Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF) reclamation works.

     The HZMB is of particular strategic importance to the further economic development of Hong Kong, Macao and the Western Pearl River Delta region.

     The HKBCF artificial island will have a reclaimed area of about 150 hectares, including 19 hectares of land required for the southern landfall of the Tuen Mun - Chek Lap Kok Link, providing mainly for passenger clearance and cargo processing facilities.  Detailed design of the reclamation works for the HKBCF began in September 2009. Ground investigation to be carried out under the contract will provide essential information for the design of the reclamation works.

     The HZMB HKBCF reclamation works are scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2010.
