AECOM Awarded Estimated US$80-Million Design and Construction Management Contract for Major Hong Kong Road Project

Work is part of US$3-billion traffic-improvement project

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 25, 2009-- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for government and commercial clients around the world, announced today that it has been awarded a contract worth approximately US$80 million for design- and construction-management services for the modified Central-Wan Chai Bypass and Island Eastern Corridor Link plan.

This new contract is a supplementary agreement to an existing contract, estimated at US$30 million, with the Highways Department of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government. The new project includes a longer road and an additional deep tunnel.

The dual three-lane bypass corridor will provide a direct East-West highway route for traffic between the Central Business District and the eastern part of Hong Kong Island. Upon its completion, traffic will bypass the heavily congested existing roads along parts of the island’s north shore via a 2.3-mile tunnel. The total project cost is estimated at US$3 billion.

“AECOM is proud to play a key role in the design and management of this important transportation infrastructure project," said John M. Dionisio, AECOM president and chief executive officer. “This project will relieve traffic congestion, improve the environment and create infrastructure-related jobs in Hong Kong.”

The project is slated for completion in 2016.
