Authorities were also optimistic the Hong Kong section of the multi-billion-dollar project, including a HK$36 billion boundary-crossing facility built on an artificial island, would be completed on schedule, despite a lawmaker’s concern about the island’s stability.
The Highways Department has gone into damage control after media reports revealed two sections of seawall on the east coast of Chek Lap Kok had moved outwards by up to 10 meters, covering an area of 5,500 square metres.
However The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Authority has rejected news reports that the seawall of an artificial island on the project’s main bridge has been displaced. In a press statement today, The authority dismissed the reports as groundless. The Highways Department said it has followed up with the authority which is responsible for the implementation of works of the main bridge.
