Project Experience: Kowloon Southern Link Railway Extension, Hong Kong

The Challenge

Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) needed a noise and vibration design review and assessment for an underground railway extension project that was in close proximity to hotels and sensitive cultural facilities in Hong Kong.

The Strategy

HMMH provided services related to vibration and structure-borne noise from train operations as well as from tunnel boring machine construction activities. One major task undertaken under this contract was a test program to measure ground-borne vibration propogation from the newly constructed rail tunnel to the nearby Hong Kong Cultural Centre.

The Solution

We are currently working for KCRC under a five-year contract to provide noise and vibration consulting services for this project.
