Balfour Beatty – Gammon Construction joint venture (JV) has bagged a HK$7.2bn (£760m) contract for the delivery of tunnels and associated works at Hong Kong International Airport.

The contract was awarded by Airport Authority Hong Kong and the tunnels are for the airport’s automatic people mover (APM) and baggage handling system (BHS).

As per the contract, Gammon will deliver two 1,800m-long eight-cell tunnel structures for both systems, along with electrical and mechanical works.

It will also build many support buildings such as pumping stations, a data centre and security facilities.

These tunnels are part of the Three Runway System (3RS) project, which will permit the travellers to move between the expanded Terminal 2 and new Third Runway Concourse.

The work on the project will be carried out with modular solutions for most of the electrical and mechanical works.

“Through our technical and innovate approach, we will ensure the productive and efficient delivery of the automatic people mover and baggage handling system, contributing to the expansion of Hong Kong International Airport to meet future air traffic growth and maintain Hong Kong’s competitiveness as an international aviation hub.”
