Chinese Water Project – Final TBM Breaks Through

Chinese Provinces Affected by Pearl River Delta Water Resources Allocation

While the tunneling process of the China’s massive Pearl River Delta water resources allocation project has been completed, at the previous weekend the TBM started its drive on the final tunnel on Daling Mountain in Dongguan, Guangdong province.

Bein considered as one of China’s 172 major water resource projects, this scheme’s value is Y35.4bn (US$4.8bn) and it is 113km long including 48 tunnels at depths of 40m to 60m.

In order to slashing water shortages in the cities of Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Dongguan, this plan is due to divert more than 1.7 billion m3 of water a year from the Xijiang River water in the west of Guangdong to the Dongjiang basin, while providing an emergency water supply for Hong Kong.

The date of commencing this tunnel’s construction was 2019, whereas end of the coming year is the estimated time for inaugurating this scheme.
