SLOPE WORKS ASSOCIATED WITH SITE FORMATION EXCAVATION AT TSING LUNG TAU, WESTERN NEW TERRITORIES, HONG KONG

A substantial site formation has been carried out on a hill slope in the Western New Territories of Hong Kong for a water treatment works and service reservoir as part of ongoing infrastructural development. Formation of the site required substantial slopes to be formed and existing slopes to be modified. The geotechnical works undertaken included excavation by drill and blast, upgrading of an existing rock slope overlooking a major highway, and stabilization works to internal slopes formed by blasting. Substantial works were required as part of the contractor's temporary works to safeguard the highway during construction, especially to guard against possible failures associated with blasting.
