香港工程師學會成立專責專家小組 跟進「沙中綫」鋼筋接駁工程事件 The HKIE Sets up an Expert Task Force for the “Shatin to Central Link” Steel Bar Installation Incident

(香港,二零一八年七月五日) 香港工程師學會(下稱「學會」)非常關注近日有關大型鐵路工程質量的傳媒報導,支持香港政府就港鐵沙中綫的鋼筋接駁工程,成立獨立調查委員會跟進,以釋公眾疑慮。為維護業界專業水平和回應公眾關注,學會理事會決定成立專責專家小組,研究現行專業守則,並會就公眾對有關事件提出的疑問,從專業角度提供意見和作出解說。

 

香港工程項目能達至國際的質量要求與安全水平,乃屬公眾的合理期望;專業人士秉持嚴謹操守,亦是香港的核心價值。作為代表本地工程界並擁有法定地位的專業團體,學會高度重視業界的專業水平,期望工程的質量與安全都符合標準。學會根據會章及紀律規章處理學會會籍的申請和紀律程序,致力維持專業水平,並對違反專業操守人士作出懲處。

 

沙中綫鋼筋接駁工程的報導近日引起公眾廣泛關注,亦引起了一些對本地工程業界專業水平的討論。學會成立的專責專家小組,將會研究與專業水平和操守的相關議題,同時為公眾提供專業意見,避免公眾產生不必要的誤解。

 

專責專家小組由李行偉教授、工程師,區達光教授、工程師和楊建明工程師組成,他們都擁有豐富的建造和結構工程專業知識和經驗。小組會待獨立調查委員會完成調查並發表報告後,研究並作出建議。若獨立調查委員會發現事件牽涉個別人士專業失當,學會亦會按既定機制作出跟進。

 

香港工程界多年來認真、嚴謹地為每項工程把關,讓香港工程項目贏得國際美譽,得到市民信賴。學會期望小組能夠為業界把脈,提供寶貴意見,維護業界聲譽和公眾信心。

 

由於今次事件與學會會長黃唯銘博士、工程師的個人工作事務有關,上述安排與相關後續工作,均交由高級副會長余錫萬工程師全權跟進,黃會長不會參與其中。

附件一:專責專家小組成員資料


 

(5 July 2018, Hong Kong) The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers (HKIE) is very concerned about the media reports on the quality of the latest large-scale rail project, and supports the Government’s initiative to set up an independent commission of inquiry on the steel bar installation incident of the Shatin to Central Link. To uphold the industry standard and alleviate public concerns, the HKIE decides to set up an expert task force to study the existing code of practice and to provide expert opinion and explanation on public enquiries on the subject matter.

 

It is a reasonable expectation that projects in Hong Kong attain international quality and safety standards. To maintain a high professional standard is also the core value of Hong Kong. As the local engineering professional body set up by the Ordinance, the HKIE values highly the professional standard and in turn maintains the quality and safety standard for projects that are developed and built in Hong Kong. The HKIE handles membership applications and disciplinary actions in accordance with the Constitution and Disciplinary Regulations. Disciplinary actions will be taken for those who fail to observe the professional conduct.

 

The latest media reports on the steel bar installation incident of Shatin to Central Link have aroused public concerns and raised queries on the professional standard of local engineering profession. In this regard, the HKIE decides to set up an expert task force to study the professional standard and conduct arising from this incident. At the same time, to mitigate unnecessary misunderstanding on the matter, the HKIE will provide professional opinions and explanations on enquiries related to the profession.

 

The task force is comprised of Ir Prof Joseph Lee, Ir Prof Francis Au, and Ir K M Yeung. Together they have ample professional knowledge and experience on building and structural engineering. After the release of the investigation report by the independent commission of inquiry, the task force will study and make recommendations to the HKIE. Should misconduct of any individual member be found, the HKIE would follow up in accordance with the existing mechanism.

 

The engineering industry takes each and every project in a serious and professional manner. That is why Hong Kong engineering projects have won international reputation and trust of Hong Kong people. The HKIE is highly concerned on the quality of the latest project and hope the task force will take the pulse of the industry and offer their opinion to maintain the industry’s reputation and public trust.


Due to the private professional practice of President Ir Dr Philco Wong, Senior Vice President Ir Ringo Yu will follow up on this case and Ir Dr Wong will not be involved.

香港工程師學會 港珠澳大橋人工島防波堤之回應

(香港,四月十一日) 香港工程師學會 (下稱「學會」) 關注近日媒體報導有關港珠澳大橋人工島防波堤的情況,並正密切留意事態發展。

 

港珠澳大橋工程連接四大人工島 (香港口岸、珠澳口岸及海底隧道東、西出入口人工島) 及三地口岸,並有海底隧道連接部分人工島。人工島沿岸防波堤設計上利用弱波石 (又稱「外扭工字塊」) 作保護;弱波石間存有空隙,用作吸收海浪的能量,避免海浪直接衝擊海堤。另外,弱波石亦被用作沉管隧道的防護層。

 

於海洋中進行大型建造工程,事前必須對實地環境作詳細勘察,收集足夠數據並作出分析及工程計量,進行多方面的模擬及評估,以制定符合要求的建築及工程設計。學會明白公眾就於港珠澳大橋東人工島所拍攝的照片而對人工島及海底隧道的安全情況有所疑慮。然而,學會認為在判定設計是否安全及有否偏差前,必須先掌握足夠資料以作出有系統的分析,故不能單靠照片及推測而作出未經證實的結論。

 

學會留意到路政署經了解和實地視察後,工程的實地建成情況與施工圖設計脗合。為進一步加強公眾對港珠澳大橋工程及日後運作的信心,學會建議當局可考慮與各持份者多加溝通,增加透明度以釋除公眾疑慮。
