MTR Corporation Limited’s Arrangement for the Shatin to Central Link

Slaughter and May advised MTR Corporation Limited.

The highly publicised project connects the Northeastern New Territories, central Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, creating a rail line that spans 46km through 16 stations. The SCL is part of a mega project that comprises two parts: the introduction of the Tuen Ma Line, connecting the Ma On Shan Line to the West Rail Line via East Kowloon and the extension of the East Rail Line from Admiralty to Hung Hom, making it the fourth harbour-crossing railway line in Hong Kong.

The completed mega project will relieve traffic congestion and offer commuters a direct route between the Northeastern New Territories and the commercial and financial hubs of Hong Kong Island.

Slaughter and May’s team included Jason Webber (Picture), Partner, Kevin Tso, Associate and Vanessa Lo, Trainee.
