NEC has been used to deliver a vital new dual carriageway, cycle track and footpath across Junk Bay in Hong Kong. The Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) let the Cross Bay Link main bridge and associated works contract to China Road and Bridge Corporation (CRBC) under a HK$2.585 billion (£270 million) NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC) Option C (target contract with activity schedule) in July 2018. The NEC project manager was the CEDD East Development Office and AECOM Asia Company Limited was the client designer and NEC supervisor. Despite delayed access to part of the site in 2018, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on resources and logistics since 2020, and the continually challenging maritime environment, the crossing was successfully completed to the agreed budget and programme in December 2022. The project won the Institution of Civil Engineers’ 2021 Brunel Medal, the Construction Industry Council’s (CIC) 2021 Construction Digitalisation Gold Award, the Local Grand Prize of the 2022 CIC Construction Innovation Award, and the Overall Best Award of the Association of Consulting Engineers of Hong Kong 2022 Annual Awards.
