Tenders invited for Kai Tak Cruise Terminal Development work

The Civil Engineering and Development Department today (July 17) invited tenders for site formation works for the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal Development.

The scope of the project "Site Formation for Kai Tak Cruise Terminal Development" comprises construction of an 1,100-metre-long seawall, two alongside berths and necessary mooring and fender systems, including 850m-long berthing structures and about 150m-long associated transition structures at two ends, for berthing of cruise vessels.

It also provides for a 35m-wide apron area along the berthing length, and dredging of adjoining seabed to allow manoeuvring and berthing of cruise vessels with deep drafts.

The works are scheduled to begin this December with target commission of the first berth to receive cruise vessels in mid-2013. The remaining works will be completed in 2014.

The Civil Engineering and Development Department has commissioned Scott Wilson Ltd to design and supervise the construction works.

The invitation to tender was gazetted today and the closing time of the tender will be noon on August 28.
