       The Highways Department (HyD) today (May 12) signed an investigation, design and construction consultancy agreement with AECOM Asia Company Limited for the Tsing Yi - Lantau Link project. The consultancy agreement mainly comprises a series of impact assessments, a site investigation and project designs for the proposed works of the Tsing Yi - Lantau Link.
      A spokesman for the HyD said, "The Tsing Yi - Lantau Link together with Route 11 and other relevant major roads will form a group of strategic roads to improve the conditions of traffic plying the Northwest New Territories and urban areas, increase the route choices for the commuter traffic on Lantau Island and urban areas, and strengthen the resilience of the entire road network. The Tsing Yi - Lantau Link can create capacity for the Northwest New Territories to satisfy the needs of the long-term development of Hong Kong. The commencement of the investigation study and detailed design marked a major milestone of the project. The Government's target is to commission the proposed major roads mentioned above in phases in or before 2033. We will also introduce suitable technology and innovative techniques to ensure that the project can be completed and commissioned as early as possible, thereby benefiting the public with this key transport infrastructure as soon as possible."
      The HyD will gazette the road scheme according to the Roads (Works, Use and Compensation) Ordinance to collect the views of different stakeholders. If the statutory procedures can be completed earlier, the construction of the project can be commenced as early as possible.
      The proposed Tsing Yi - Lantau Link is on the south of the existing Lantau Link and comprises mainly two long-span bridges crossing the Ma Wan Fairway and Kap Shui Mun Fairway, Tsing Yi Connection and North Lantau Interchange.
