An Expert Adviser Team for the Shatin to Central Link Project has been established, the Transport & Housing Bureau announced.
The team comprises former Director of Civil Engineering Lau Ching-kwong, former Director of Buildings Hui Siu-wai and former Head of Geotechnical Engineering Office Wong Hok-ning.
It will conduct an overall review of the Mass Transit Railway Corporation’s project management system and recommend additional management and monitoring measures to be undertaken by the MTRC and government departments.
The team will advise on the most pragmatic methodology for the MTRC to verify the structural safety of the platform slabs and diaphragm walls at the Hung Hom Station Extension.
It will also consider further investigations in relation to the construction of key structures in all stations of the project, and advise on any other matters related to the works of the rail link.
The expert advisers will complete a report on their findings in about nine months
