Road & Infra Lecture Series 5

TBM: Hong Kong to Taiwan
19 November 2016
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Z205
Over the decade, a great number of tunnels are being built worldwide because of the investment by
the local governments in the advancement of highways and transportation. Hong Kong has been
one of the most active places worldwide for tunneling works. Whereas in Taiwan, tunneling has
been a prime element in transportation system due to its mountainous terrain and the variation in
geological condition impose challenges for engineers to control the time and cost in tunneling
projects. HKIHT invited Tunneling Specialists from Hong Kong and Taiwan to share the pioneering
tunneling technology in our Road & Infra Lecture Series 5.
The Hong Kong Institution of Highways & Transportation and Hong Kong Polytechnic University
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering are pleased to announce Road and Infra
Lecture Series TBM: Hong Kong to Taiwan. Speakers for this series include Mr. Daniel Altier from
Dragages Hong Kong and Mr. KJ Chen from Continental Engineering Corporation. Mr. Altier has
over 29 years working experience on Tunnelling projects and will share his tunnelling experiences
in various overseas countries. Mr. Chen is going to share about the construction of Xinyi Line, which
is located at the highly developed area in Taipei underlain by mainly soft material with high ground
water table.
