Tsuen Wan Bypass – Phase I
The first highway project
In 1978, Dragages broke new ground with its first major Hong Kong highway project.
The dual three-lane expressway, which weaved its way through an existing busy network of roadways, required complex at grade construction work and rock excavation.
The post-tensioned concrete viaduct was poured on site and rock excavation was done by a rock splitting technique.
The completion of the new bypass successfully upgraded the road network and alleviated congestion.
