The 2021 Project of the Year contest consisted of nine categories and attracted entries from all over the world. By evaluating each entry against the criteria of innovation, originality and creativity, challenges overcome, installation methods and techniques, as well as the use of advanced technology, the judging panel awarded the first place in "Escalators, Modernisation" category to Anlev's Central-Mid-Levels Escalator and Walkway System modernisation project.

Dr. Otto Poon Lok-to, Chairman of ATAL Engineering Group, is delighted to see the Group receiving industry recognition in the international arena. He gives credit to the project team for the achievement and said, "In handling the Central-Mid-Levels Escalator and Walkway System project which covers over 800 metres in distance, elevates 135 metres through the street hillside, and serves over 78,000 people on daily basis, the project team faced many challenges, we tackled them with meticulous precision and utmost consideration for the many stakeholders. I am proud of them for overcoming the hardship while maintaining a high level of satisfaction for the neighbourhood."
The Central-Mid-Levels Escalator and Walkway System in Hong Kong is the longest outdoor covered escalator system in the world. It connects nine streets at the heart of the city and has been a tourist attraction and an essential commuter service since it came into service in 1993. The system consists of a series of 18 escalators and three inclined moving walkways connected in places by footbridges, providing better commute for people residing and working in the area.
After some 25 years of relentless service to the community, the system needs refurbishment and upgrade. Anlev was then appointed by the Hong Kong SAR government to carry out the modernisation works, providing technical know-how and system replacement for the government's first major renovation of the escalator and walkway system since it was inaugurated. The modernisation of the entire escalator and walkway system was divided into 12 phases. The works commenced in 2018 and is slated for completion in 2022.
