LOS ANGELES, Feb 25, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of
professional technical and management support services for government
and commercial clients around the world, announced today that it has won
a design-services contract from MTR Corporation Limited, the
owner-operator of the Hong Kong MTR metro system, as part of the Hong
Kong Shatin to Central Link rail project.
AECOM's work under the contract will include designs for a new
interchange station called "Diamond Hill," a semi-underground
train-stabling facility, the upgrade of an existing rail depot and an
extensive footbridge network.
"We are proud to play a key role in the design of Hong Kong's rapidly
expanding rail infrastructure," said John M. Dionisio, AECOM president
and chief executive officer. "AECOM has now played a major role in the
planning of five of the six major rail projects to be built in Hong Kong
during the next eight years."
Once complete, Diamond Hill is expected to become one of the busiest
interchange stations in the city, accommodating nearly 47,000 people
daily during the peak hour of the morning commute.
The Shatin to Central Link project will provide a new rail link between
Hong Kong's New Territories and its central business district. It will
pass through the heart of Hong Kong's densely populated Kowloon region
as well as the former Kai Tak Airport, which is undergoing a major
revitalization as a mixed-use development. The Diamond Hill station will
be on the link's East West Corridor, which will join two
already-operational railways to form a 34-mile metro rail line.
