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.
