A programme of NEC contracts is being used to retrofit barrier-free access facilities to existing footbridges in Hong Kong to improve walkability in the city. The contracts have been let by the Highways Department (HyD) of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China as part its Universal Accessibility programme, which it launched in 2012. Nine NEC contracts were adopted to deliver this programme, all of which involve Mannings (Asia) Consultants Limited. Mannings Asia is HyD’s NEC project manager delegate and NEC supervisor on seven of the contracts. On the two NEC4 ECC Option C contracts won by Build King-Richwell Engineering Joint Venture, Mannings Asia is working as the contractor’s designer. The aim of the programme is to retrofit step-free-access in the form of lifts and ramps to nearly 400 existing public footbridges, elevated walkways and subways.
