I doubt Happy Valley residents would appreciate mass redevelopment and passenger traffic in their exclusive, quiet enclave.

兩鐵紀念車票 合併日無限乘搭
11月 02日 星期五 05:30AM
星島日報

距離九鐵與地鐵合併還有一個月時間,兩鐵已急不及待,率先在本月推出「兩鐵合併 紀念票」及一套三車的「兩鐵合併紀念列車模型──經典系統套裝」。紀念票上印有兩鐵的標誌和合併年份「二○○七」字樣(圖右),只可在合併日無限次乘搭。紀念票及列車模型分別會在本月十一日及十八日推出,各款數量不足五萬個。

列車模型套裝本月推

十二月二日兩鐵正式合併,地鐵公司市務策劃經理梁靜雯指出,兩鐵花近一年時間,終為兩鐵合併特製一款可以一張車票,搭齊兩個列車系統的紀念車票,「車票對角位置印有地鐵及九鐵的標誌,乘客根據相應鐵路標誌方向插進入閘機,便可入閘。」紀念票可在合併日無限次使用,票價港幣五十元,本月十一日發售。車票上印有「二○○七」字樣,票套印上兩鐵不同年代發展里程碑。而一套三車的列車模型套裝(圖左)將在本月十八日推出,除了有九鐵四十年代使用的「Vulcan」蒸汽機車,及五十年代至○四年使用的「亞歷山大爵士」號柴油車,還有地鐵自一九七九年始投入服務的「Metro-Cammell M Train」載客列車,全套售價為港幣一百八十八元。套裝更包括一套兩鐵里程碑紀念明信片。記者 陳意婷

I would think so, too.

But the rail can help the racecourse traffic. Instead of closing off the whole Wong Nai Chung Gap Road towards Aberdeen Tunnel every time there is a event at the racecourse in order to set up a bus terminus, and have all traffic detours out to Gloucester Road and turns around by Victoria Park in Causeway Bay. MTR can move all people and event buses off the road and maintain the traffic flow on Wong Nai Chung Gap Road towards Aberdeen Tunnel. The road closure usually creates massive delay all over HKI and possibly a grid lock.

The racecourse entrance is actually away from the posh residential areas, so a station there may be feasible, but it may prompt some skyscrapers in the vicinity that will look down on the rich people's homes nearby, so the problem still remains.

There is no room to build a complex to financially support MTRC there. If Happy Valley were built, it would have been just a station with no property. Something like what is in WIL. It's all about financial feasibility, not in term of traffic/transportation. I am sure that's the reason why Happy Valley was rejected in the SIL. From traffic point of view, a rail is needed to support the racecourse moveing people out of the area quick without disturbing the area road network. The outcome will be we still have to face traffic problem every race day at Happy Valley.

I somehow doubt whether the subsidy model can be used for yet another new subway line. Although revolutionary, I don't think the government wants to build another loss-making line, especially when there is opposition from the area residents. WIL was a bit different. There was much neighborhood desire to bring the MTR there.

SIL is half and half. MTRC more likely will get the development right at the existing Wong Chuk Hang Estate above the depot. But besides that, there is no another piece of land for MTRC to build anything, the government will still need to subsidy, but not majority like in WIL.

Also MTRC is also a listed company at the stock market, it can't really do anything that is obvious that will be a lost on the company itself, although the infrastructure will benefit the community and all the users along the route.

HK's MTRC is the only subway in the world runs like a private cooperate without full subsidy from the government. The idea is great and helps a lot, but I think we now see the negative side of it. Transportation infrastructures sometimes just can't be done without subsidy and only built when there is a benefit to the operator.

When I first heard the news, I thought it'd be great that the MTR can get the construction bill partially paid off, while retaining the revenue proceeds. That should drive up the stock price (free capital investment), but come to think of it, if the revenues are not sufficient to cover the construction costs in the first place, what is the long-term sustainability of the line when we already know the population is not large enough to support the extension? That should drag down the stock price in the long run.

環 境 所 限   可 能 不 設 中 環 站
沙 中 線 或 變 金 沙 線



【 本 報 訊 】 約 100 萬 名 東 鐵 及 馬 鐵 乘 客 要 轉 乘 地 鐵 過 海 , 將 會 成 為 集 體 回 憶 。 特 首 曾 蔭 權 在 施 政 報 告 承 諾 興 建 由 紅 磡 過 海 的 東 鐵 新 線 沙 田 至 中 環 線 , 當 局 即 將 公 佈 計 劃 詳 情 , 新 線 會 設 鑽 石 山 、 德 及 何 文 田 等 十 個 車 站 , 工 程 則 分 兩 階 段 , 2015 年 大 圍 至 紅 磡 段 通 車 , 2018 年 則 東 鐵 由 紅 磡 過 海 往 中 環 通 車 。 由 於 中 環 地 理 環 境 所 限 , 不 排 除 總 站 不 設 在 中 環 而 設 在 金 鐘 , 沙 中 線 將 會 隨 時 變 成 「 金 沙 線 」 。  

政 府 早 於 2000 年 提 出 第 四 條 過 海 鐵 路 沙 中 線 計 劃 , 列 為 優 先 發 展 鐵 路 項 目 , 但 受 德 發 展 規 劃 及 兩 鐵 合 併 計 劃 阻 延 。 兩 鐵 現 已 正 式 宣 佈 下 月 合 併 , 房 屋 及 運 輸 局 也 確 定 明 年 初 公 佈 沙 中 線 詳 情 。 據 悉 , 沙 中 線 全 長 17 公 里 , 共 設 10 個 站 , 由 大 圍 起 , 經 鑽 石 山 、 德 、 土 瓜 灣 、 馬 頭 圍 、 何 文 田 、 紅 磡 , 長 約 11 公 里 , 由 紅 磡 過 海 往 灣 仔 會 展 、 金 鐘 , 以 中 環 為 總 站 , 過 海 段 則 長 約 6 公 里 。

由 於 沙 中 線 經 紅 磡 過 海 , 海 底 隧 道 的 走 線 非 常 接 近 現 有 的 舊 紅 磡 海 底 隧 道 , 故 設 計 上 要 作 出 遷 就 , 施 工 時 間 也 較 長 。 整 項 工 程 費 用 達 300 億 元 , 政 府 預 算 負 責 所 有 費 用 , 建 成 後 如 東 鐵 般 出 租 給 港 鐵 營 運 。

Police searching for MTR attacker
Hong Kong Standard
Monday, November 05, 2007

Police are searching for a man after a 20-year-old woman claimed she was indecently assaulted at an MTR station.

The woman, known only as Miss Tai, said she was followed by a man in his 20s and with whom she had earlier quarrelled. Then man then pushed her into a train and fled.

The incident took place at 5.15pm on Friday at Admiralty and follows concerns over the safety of women at MTR stations.

Tai told police she was walking in the station to catch a train heading for Chai Wan when she and a long-haired man bumped into each other.

After exchanging a few heated words, she continued walking toward the train stop without realizing the man was following her.

As the train arrived and the doors opened, the man allegedly used his knee to hit her lower abdomen, causing her to bend her body at which time she was pushed into the compartment.

The woman got off at the next stop and returned to Admiralty where she reported to the police.

Police said they are looking for a man in his 20s, with long hair and of a slim build.

Police confirmed they are investigating the case and have classified it as an alleged assault.

The case follows a survey of 406 women conducted in 2004 by the Gutsy Women group which revealed the extent of the problem.

Two-thirds of respondents said they had been indecently assaulted on public transport but most did not seek help from bus drivers or train staff.

The survey found more than 40 percent of the alleged sexual offenses took place on MTR and KCRC trains and 38 percent on buses. There were 991 reported cases of indecent assault in 2002, but only 73 were alleged to have occurred on trains.

Rail firm urged to build for elderly
MTR Corp should redevelop its properties into homes for retirees, report says

5 November 2007
South China Morning Post

The MTR Corporation - a property development giant as well as a rail company - should consider offering housing specially designed for the elderly, a soon-to-be-released consultancy report suggests.

The report, commissioned by the Housing Society, itself a major housing supplier, says the move would help address problems of an ageing population.

Existing public housing failed to address the needs of elderly people who could not afford middle-class housing, but wanted something better than the cheapest public flats, the report said.

But sources in the Housing Society said talks on the issue with the rail company were on hold because there was no government population policy.

The society, a non-profit organisation that provides housing for the middle-income group, commissioned the University of Hong Kong and Chinese University last year to investigate the demand for housing for the elderly. The preliminary report is expected to be completed next month.

Ernest Chui Wing-tak, a professor of social work at HKU who led the study, said it comprised an extensive survey of people over 50, who would be joining the ranks of the elderly in five to 10 years.

Future development models for housing for the elderly were also explored, he added.

Among the models, Dr Chui said railway properties and redevelopment projects in old districts were seen as "convenient nodes" for such housing.

Financial incentives such as specially priced tickets could be offered by the rail company, to make the elderly feel cared for, and to encourage them to go out and socialise, he said.

Dr Chui said existing residential developments did not fully cater to the needs of the elderly.

"Old people like to do tai chi on ground level or up on a hill. They do not enjoy exercising in sky gardens."

Sources close to the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation, which will merge its rail operations with the MTR Corp next month, said stations along the West Rail line - such as Pat Heung - had potential as low-rise housing because the natural landscape offered a good living environment for the elderly.

Frequent use of trains by older people would also increase passenger numbers on the underused line in off-peak hours.

A Housing Society source said negotiations with the MTR Corp on developing housing for the elderly along the West Rail line, including Nam Cheong station, were on hold.

"Housing for the elderly is not a profitable business, and there are high land premiums and costs. There must be a long-term government policy to support the projects."

Although Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen said in his policy address that the scheme for the elderly launched by the Housing Society should be expanded, it faced a shortage of land.

According to government projections, the percentage of those aged over 65 will increase from 12 per cent last year to over 26 per cent by 2033.

The Council for Sustainable Development submitted a proposal to the government in June urging it to encourage a universal design for buildings and facilities for the elderly.

It also said public housing policy should be reviewed to support the care of extended family members.

A spokesman for the MTR Corp said the company had no plan to build housing for the elderly, but would act as a government agent after the merger to develop stations along the West Rail line.

A spokesman for Chief Secretary Henry Tang Ying-yen said a steering committee on population policy would call meetings soon.

Definitely. There's no doubt there would be CCTVs in operation at Admiralty as well.

At the stations, including platforms, yes. I believe there is no CCTV in the train though.

地鐵擬推出月票優惠
10/11/2007


【本報訊】兩鐵下月正式合併,各條鐵路的票務系統正進行協調,為配合九鐵現有的月票及季票優惠,地鐵亦構思推出月票優惠,但暫未確定售價及使用方式。民間團體要求地鐵的月票收費必須合理及真正惠及乘客。

立法會交通事務委員會鐵路事宜小組委員會昨討論西港島線的財務安排,議員鄭家富認為港府計劃「真金白銀」注資六十億元資助地鐵興建西港島線,應乘勢要求地鐵減價一成。王國興亦認為,今次是政府打本興建新線,票價上應有發言權。

鄭汝樺回應時透露,地鐵正研究日後提供月票形式的優惠,並考慮在兩鐵合併後繼續為市民提供東鐵及西鐵月票等優惠,但鄭未有進一步透露月票計劃內容。現時九鐵推出的月票優惠形式十分簡單,市民只需付指定金額,該月份便可「任搭」指定鐵路的列車。

倡分設長短途計劃
民間監管公共事業聯委會發言人蔡耀昌指,歡迎地鐵考慮推出月票計劃,但有關優惠必須收費合理,否則難以惠及乘客。他認為,由於兩鐵合併後鐵路的票務系統變得複雜,建議地鐵分長、短途月票計劃,令較多人受惠。

另外,鄭汝樺表示,將分兩期注資地鐵興建西港島線,第一期四億元撥款用作詳細設計,而該線的票價會以現有票價為標準。對於議員質疑注資有利益輸送之嫌,鄭指西港島線回報率低,若無政府資助,地鐵根本不會興建。

運輸及房屋局副秘書長容偉雄則謂,據評估二○一六年西港島線將有二十萬人次客量,其他交通工具將有超過一成乘客轉搭新線,但其他公共交通工具若接駁好鐵路,仍有營運空間。
