A new border control point is being constructed between Shenzen and Hong Kong, to help ease congestion.

Bringing down boundaries

The commute between Shenzhen and Hong Kong is made by millions every year. Sandvik equipment is being used to help construct new viaducts and tunnels with a view to easing the existing, increasingly congested routes.

Travelling between Shenzhen in China and Hong Kong is a journey made by millions in the area, yet it often means congested roads leading to huge time delays. To solve the issue, a new Border Control Point (BCP) is being made, called the Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai BCP.

This major new development involves the construction of more than three kilometres of viaducts and 700 metres of tunnels. CRBC-CEC-Kaden JV, the company responsible, looked to Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology and its equipment for help. The contractor has invested in three Ranger DX800 surface drill rigs to supplement the Sandvik equipment already in use at the site, and the partnership is working well.
