As per a conversation with Clive, when I find documents related to the Hong Kong – Zhuhai – Macau bridge, I’ll post the relevant links here.
First up the pdf of LegCo Public Works Subcommittee from last week:
Concerning the viability studies performed on the project…Quote:19.
In January 2003, D of Hy included an item under Subhead 6100TX “Highway works, studies and investigations for items in Category D of the Public Works Programme” to fund HKSAR’s share of the cost for the ICT to conduct a study entitled “Transport Linkage between Hong Kong and Pearl River West” at an estimated cost of $800,000 in MOD prices. The ICT completed the study in July 2003.
In March 2004, we included an item under Subhead 6100TX at an estimated cost of $11.0 million at MOD prices to fund HKSAR’s share of the cost for the HPDI to conduct the feasibility study for the HZMB. In April 2005, we increased the APE of this item by $900,000 to $11.9 million in MOD prices to provide fund for HKSAR’s share of the cost for the HPDI to carry out some additional topical studies for the feasibility study.
As a note the ICT is the Institute of Comprehensive Transportation, which is a mainland government organisation under the National Development and Reform Commission.
Haven’t checked yet on who the HPDI is.23 June 2005 at 3:51 am #7753Anonymous
