About this event

The West Island Line (WIL) is the extension of the MTR island line and will provide a community railway running below the densely populated areas of the Western District. The construction of the WIL will be completed in 2014. This technical seminar aims to provide the audience an update of the progress and share the challenges faced by the project team during construction in the highly constrained urban environment. The speaker will share some of the lessons learnt in the process which require more than engineering skills to handle.
