Central Kowloon Route (CKR) is a dual 3-lane trunk road connecting the Yau Ma
Tei Interchange in West Kowloon with the Kai Tak Interchange in East Kowloon.
It will divert the traffic along the major east-west corridors in Kowloon
so as to relieve the existing traffic congestion and to cope with future
traffic demand. The alignment of the CKR passes through the highly developed
Central Kowloon area as well as the seabed of the Kowloon Bay. The CKR will
mainly be formed by tunnel and the three ventilation buildings will be equipped
with air purification system.
The seminar will introduce some of the key challenges faced in the planning and
design of the CKR and the design considerations to cater for those challenges.
Interesting topics, including the selection of alignment, the
considerations of construction methods, the process of public engagement and
the measures adopted in handling the environmental and public concerns, will be
Free of Charge.
