Hopewell to raise China expressway investment

HOPEWELL Holdings Ltd, a property company controlled by billionaire Gordon Wu, said it agreed to invest 4.64 billion yuan (US$680 million) more on an expressway in southern China, part of a project linking cities in the Pearl River Delta.

The total investment in the second and third phase of the project will be increased to 12.8 billion yuan, Hopewell said in a statement to Hong Kong stock exchange yesterday. The expressway is a venture between Hopewell and Guangdong Provincial Highway Construction Ltd, it said.

The increase was necessary as the venture had acquired more land and construction material costs had risen, the statement said.
