Speakers:   Mr. ALAN KWAN, Assistant Project Manager, Paul Y. Construction Company, Limited




In October 2007, the West Island Line (WIL) scheme was gazetted under the Railway Ordinance.  One of the WIL stations, Kennedy Town Station will be located at the site of the existing Kennedy Town Swimming Pool on Smithfield Road.  As a result, re-provisioning of existing pool is on the critical path of MTRC WIL as construction of Kennedy Town Station cannot be commenced until the new complex is completed and in operation.


This swimming pool new complex will be completed in two phases to coincide with the construction and completion of WIL.  To match the overall construction progress of the West Island Line, the Phase 1 of this Project has to be completed on or before 14 March 2011.  Within 20 months of time, the Project was built from an open ground to a modern sport facility and allowed move-in of the swimming pool operator.


The new Kennedy Town Swimming Pool Complex features structure steel roof and metal cladding system in space-shuttle-ship shape.  With the Phase 2 completed on 2015, it will be a landmark of the sea front in Kennedy Town.
