2013-02-20 05:25:58 - Fast Market Research recommends "Hong Kong Infrastructure Report Q1 2013" from Business Monitor International, now available
BMI View: Construction activity in Hong Kong remain robust as the government's plan to boost housing supply and to improve the city's transport links moves into full swing. We expect the construction sector to continue to grow relatively robustly and have revised up our 2012 construction real growth estimate to 10.1%. For 2013, we are cautiously optimistic towards the sector as the large pipeline of projects and the launch of another round of quantitative easing in the US should provide a solid base to support construction activity.
Key developments in Hong Kong's infrastructure sector:
* In July 2012, South Korea's Samsung Construction & Trading (Samsung C&T) won a construction contract in Hong Kong as part of a consortium with Hong Kong-based
builder Hsin Chong. The HKD589mn (US$350mn) contract has been awarded by Hong Kong's rail operator Mass Transit Railway (MTR) and includes the construction of the 2.2km subway section of the Shatin to Central Link, and two stations. Samsung C&T holds a 60% stake in the project, which is likely to be completed in 69 months.
* In July 2012, UK engineering company Atkins secured a lead engineering design contract on the Hong Kong Link Road (HKLR) scheme worth GBP750mn (US$936mn) in Hong Kong. The 12km road, which is scheduled to be completed in early 2017, will link the Hong Kong- Zhuhai-Macao Bridge and Hong Kong International Airport through a dual three track carriageway. Under the contract, the company is to carry out main civil engineering works, in addition to work on a tunnel control building and tunnel ventilation systems. Additionally, the company will be responsible for establishing an environmental monitoring and audit programme. The company will be working for China State Construction Engineering (Hong Kong), which won a contract for the design and construction of the road. The contract was awarded by the Highways Department of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
* In November 2012, Hong Kong's Drainage Services Department was carrying out a detailed engineering feasibility study to relocate the aging Sha Tin Sewage Treatment Works to mountain caverns in Nui Po Shan, Sha Tin. This could free about 28 hectares for housing and other uses on the existing site. The study for the HKD10bn project, which has the support of the Sha Tin District Council, is expected to be finished by the middle of 2014, with the first stage of public engagement to run from November 2012 to February 2013, according to the China Daily.
