Unique Cable Tunnel Design Helps Power Kai Tak (只提供英文版)

The Government of Hong Kong is set to redevelop the former airport area at Kai Tak, in eastern Kowloon, and CLP Power is preparing to supply electricity to the area, through building the Kai Tak Cable Tunnel which will connect to five new substations in the area. “In future, this cable tunnel will minimise the need for future road opening works during the power supply connection,” says Ir Anthony Ip Wai-leung, Senior Project Engineer, CLP Power. “Plus, it’s an innovative way of leaving a strip of land around a kilometre long for other community development.”
