LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE:ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for public and private clients in more than 140 countries around the world, announced today that it has been awarded an approximately US$13-million consultancy contract for the design and an estimated US$103-million contract for the construction supervision of the Tseung Kwan O – Lam Tin (TKO-LT) Tunnel project in Hong Kong.
The TKO-LT Tunnel will include a 2.6-mile, two-lane highway connecting Tseung Kwan O (TKO) at Po Shun Road in the east with the proposed Trunk Road T2 in Kai Tak Development in the west.
The tunnel, along with the Central Kowloon Route and Trunk Road T2, will form part of the city’s Route 6 — becoming an east-west express link between the West Kowloon and TKO areas. The completion of Route 6 is anticipated to reduce the travel time between West Kowloon and TKO from 30 minutes to 12 minutes.
“Since 2009, we have been involved in the planning of this project, providing preliminary design and other services,” said AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio. “We are very proud to be able to contribute to the project’s next phase.”
