THE contract for the Central-Wan Chai reclamation will not be awarded until Britain and China agree on the financing of the new airport and railway, the Secretary for Works, Mr James Blake, said yesterday. The expiry date for tenders for the contract has been delayed from December to early July because of the two governments' failure to reach an agreement. The 21-hectare reclamation will house the Central station for the airport railway. It is understood that the Government has shortlisted two consortiums, one led by Dragages and Travaux Publics, Penta Ocean Construction and Bache Solentanche and the other by Shui On and China Fujian. In the absence of a financial agreement, the railway - to be run by the Mass Transit Railway Corporation (MTRC) - will run from Chek Lap Kok to Kowloon.
