Waterproofing for Hong Kong West Island Line
Location: Hong Kong
Market sector: Underground construction
- MasterSeal 345
Master Builders Solutions Hong Kong has been awarded a contract to supply waterproofing products for the 3km underground tunnel linking the newly added MTR stations from Sheung Wan to Sai Ying Pun, the University of Hong Kong and Kennedy Town. The construction work is part of the West Island Line extension project initiated by the MTR Corporation Limited.
Gammon-Nishimatsu WIL Joint Venture, the project contractor, decided to "freeze" the soil following the spray concrete process, to overcome the soft soil conditions in the area, which could hamper their construction work.
