Macau LRT - The largest public transportation project in Macau
Macao LRT project officially entered the stage of large-scale construction in 2012. In 2015, the hoisting and installation of the approximate 4 km viaduct of the LRT Taipa line was completed and the viaduct area between Ocean Station and Jockey Club Station was the first to be connected. Construction of the main structure of 11 stations was commenced.
In July 2016, the Tender Opening for “Construction works for Depot Superstructure of Macao LRT” was conducted by Macao Transportation Infrastructure Office (GIT). A total of 7 companies submitted tenders, with bidding prices ranging from MOP888 million to over 1,385 million. Finally, 6 companies’ tenders were accepted and the longest construction period for this project is 834 working days.
As for the Macao peninsula line, the south section was still in the design and revision phase. The consultation result of the north section was released in the middle of 2015. The coastal routing plan, among three routing plans, won the most support from the public. The government would organize technical research later to prevent the construction from affecting traffic during the construction period with as little disturbance as possible.
