Wylie Road Ancillary Building

The route length between YMT and HOM Stations is some 1,750m. As this is significantly more than the normal urban line spacing of 1,000m, an emergency access point with ventilation facility near Wylie Road is provided. This Wylie Road Ancillary Building (WAB) is located at the existing tennis courts of the Club de Recreio as shown in the figure and will serve as the access shaft for tunneling works between YMT and HOM during construction phase. The access shaft is envisaged to be excavated by means of cut & cover or drill & blast method under close supervision by the Contractor and construction management team.
