The Highways Department has requested the Mass Transit Railway Corporation to provide a detailed account of excavation works at the Exhibition Centre Station.
The underground Exhibition Centre Station is on the Hung Hom to Admiralty Extension Section of the Shatin-Central Link.
In a statement today following media enquiries on the station’s excavation works, the department said it requested the MTRC to give a detailed report on the matter within 48 hours.
During construction of the station, the contractor has to build temporary supporting structures to carry out excavation works, the department said.
The MTRC is entrusted by the Government as the project manager of the Shatin-Central Link works and has the responsibility to ensure safety and quality.
