Reduce Road Traffic Congestion
The 17km rail network is set to consist of two sections, Tai Wai to Hung Hom and Hung Hom to Admiralty and will aid in relieving the pressure that builds up on the existing railway network, as well as reducing road traffic congestion and promote a more environmentally friendly and safer living environment for the public.
SSHCJV will be responsible for the construction of the tunnels and two railway stations in the Kowloon City District after being appointed by the MTR Corporation.
Dr Jacky Lam, Director at BMT Asia Pacific said: Were delighted to be working on such a prestigious project one which will mark an important milestone for future development of Hong Kong.
Risks can occur at any point in a system or project and it is essential that they are identified, assessed, monitored and effectively managed throughout the project lifecycle.
Our specialist team will help the project team to minimise safety and constructability risks associated with the project delivery and design.
Working in Partnership
BMT will work in partnership with the project team, which consists of the MTR Corporation and SSHCJV, and will identify, document and manage all operational hazards that affect the railway, as well as the risks that relate to design for safety for constructability.
As well as the aforementioned tasks, BMT will also direct Reliability, Availability and Maintainability analysis to assert that all the necessary system/equipment for the project complies with the relevant RAM stipulations.
