LOS ANGELES, Jan 05, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- AECOM Technology Corporation, a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for government and commercial clients around the world, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, AECOM Asia Company Limited, has been awarded a US$150-million consultancy contract - which includes detailed design and provision of supervision-in-charge and resident site staff costs - for the superstructures and infrastructure of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge's (HZMB) Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF).
Under the consultancy contract from the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region's Highways Department, AECOM will provide detailed design and contract administration during the construction of the facilities and associated connecting road system. The 18-mile HZMB's main section - which is a series of bridges and a sub-sea tunnel - and the 7-mile Hong Kong Link Road - which is a series of bridges, a land tunnel and at-grade roads - will connect the HKBCF on the east side of the Pearl River Estuary to the Zhuhai-Macao boundary crossing facilities on the estuary's west side.
"AECOM is excited to work on this important roadway project," said AECOM President and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio. "This is a major engineering-consultancy contract from Hong Kong's Highways Department, and we are honored to play a key role in supporting the transportation-infrastructure needs of the growing demand for boundary-crossing communications in the region."
The AECOM-designed facilities are targeted for completion in concert with the bridge link's opening during 2016.
