Discovery Bay Tunnel
Discovery Bay Road Link connects Discovery Bay with Cheung Tung Road , the utility road of North Lantau Expressway. The 630m long, 14m span Discovery Tunnel is the first private vehicular tunnel under the jurisdiction of Buildings Department. The tunnel was constructed using drill-and-blast tunneling methods. It is a single tube bi-directional traffic tunnel with a fire-protected corridor at one side for emergency escape. Atkins was responsible for the scheme development, investigation planning, detailed design and construction supervision of the tunnel and its associated control centre, ventilation building, utility building and utilities connection work.
