2014-02-07 22:31:04 - Hong Kong Infrastructure Report Q1 2014 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
We do not expect a significant improvement in construction growth in 2014, as several factors - namely a near-term decline in the project pipeline and a slowdown in China´s economic activity - are likely to dampen construction activity in 2013 and continue into 2014. We are therefore forecasting full-year real growth for Hong Kong´s construction sector to reach 2.2% in 2014, from 1.5% growth in 2013. However, we reiterate that this outlook does not mean a dearth in growth opportunities in Hong Kong over the long term, as the government has a large number of construction projects planned over the coming years.
Key Developments In Hong Kong´s Infrastructure Sector:
- In August 2013, France-based construction firm Bouygues Construction secured a US$1.53bn contract
to design and construct a 4.2km undersea road tunnel in Hong Kong. The contract was secured through subsidiaries Dragages Hong Kong and Bouygues Travaux Publics. The project will include building a twin-tube tunnel, each tube with a diameter of 14 metres (m). The tunnel will connect the New Territories, north of Hong Kong, to Lantau Island. Two tunnel-boring machines will be used for the tunnel, which will be 50m below sea level. Forty-two cross-passages will connect the two tunnel tubes at every 100m. The project is expected to be completed in 2018.
