The TCNTE is the first
new town extension project via reclamation since the completion of the last new
town development projects in Tseung Kwan O and Tung Chung by reclamation in
2003. The project is also one of the major initiatives under the Government's
multi-pronged approach to increase land supply in the medium to long-term. It
will provide about 49,000 residential flats and about 870,000 square metres
commercial floor space, accommodating a population of about 140,000 and creating
40,000 job opportunities. The reclamation at the Tung Chung East is the main
part of the extension project.
The main objective of
the works is to provide land in phases, with a view to having the first
population intake in 2023. The contract mainly comprises reclamation of the
seabed at Tung Chung East by non-dredging methods to form a total of about 130
hectares of land; construction of seawalls with an eco-shoreline; construction
of a multi-cell drainage box culvert; provision of infrastructure for Tung
Chung Area 58; and implementation of the associated environmental mitigation
This technical visit
will start with a brief introduction to the project and follow by site walk to
major activities on site.
