Telegraph Bay Barging Point

Works Description

The temporary barging point at Telegraph Bay will mainly handle the excavated materials from Nam Fung Tunnel and Portal.

The site is located at the waterfront area of Telegraph Bay next to the Drainage Services Department's (DSD) Hong Kong West Drainage Tunnel and Harbour Area Treatment Scheme Stage 2A site offices.

It is currently proposed to co-use the barging facilities of the DSD's Hong Kong West Drainage Tunnel project for the SIL(E) project which would result in there being no requirement to construct a temporary pier at the location. The co-use of these existing facilities will minimize the environmental and traffic impacts on the Southern District as a whole.

To avoid causing impact to traffic flow during peak hours, the proposed operation hours of the temporary barging facility will be adjusted. It will be closed on Public Holidays.

All construction facilities at Telegraph Bay Barging Point will be removed upon completion of construction of the project.
