But the MTR maps need to be replaced the signs on the psds in all the stations!
Isn't it costly?

MTR urged to speed up work on new line
29 September 2014
South China Morning Post

The Democratic Alliance for the Progress and Betterment of Hong Kong hosts a press conference to call on the MTR to place priority on building the western section of the South Island Line. The eastern section is now under construction. The government recently unveiled plans for the construction of the western section in a railway development study. However, work is unlikely to start before 2021.

Not too sure what you are describing. Did the passenger block the doors from closing or smashed into the glass panel but not block the doors themselves?

Protests a rail coup for MTR
The Standard Excerpt
Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Before Occupy Central went into overdrive, the MTR Corp feared its business would screech to a halt as protesting crowds blocked the station entrances.

Instead, it has emerged a big winner, with passenger numbers soaring as roads are closed or choked with traffic.

There have been several confrontations between transport operators and protesters in the past few days, as truck owners and taxi drivers tried to dismantle roadblocks set up by the occupiers.

Public transportation is undoubtedly the most affected economic sector in the Occupy protest.

**************************

The MTR is the only transportation mode unscathed, having been able to keep the underground rail service immune to the chaos at the street level.

While the firm's management was condemned for project delay blunders in the past, ironically they can now crow that the public is lucky to have the MTR.

During the protests, the railway has been the only mass transit operator able to maintain normal service, carrying both white and blue-collar workers to their jobs, along with thousands of passionate youths to Admiralty and Mong Kok.

Without normal MTR service, the turnout for rallies in Admiralty would be very different.

The transport bureau recently received an update from the MTRC showing ridership on the Island and Kwun Tong lines swelled by 20 percent. That's significant.

According to the corporation's website, its entire network, excluding cross-border services, carries 4.4 million passengers on a normal weekday.

South Island Line tunnel broken through
21 Oct 2014









CHINA: Excavation of the Nam Fung Tunnel on Hong Kong metro’s South Island Line (East) was completed on October 17.

Drill-and-blast works for the 3·2 km tunnel between Admiralty and Ocean Park stations started in August 2012. Around 500 tonnes of explosives were used for 750 blasts, producing approximately 280 000 m³ of excavated material.

Excavation was carried out in a single direction from south to north. Additional grouting and tunnel strengthening were required in the Wan Chai Gap and Magazine Gap fault zones to mitigate the risk of water ingress into the soft materials in the rock.

Around 80% of tunnel lining works are completed, and tracklaying is expected to begin soon.

Work on the 7 km South Island Line (East) began in May 2011. The partly underground ‘medium capacity’ line will link Admiralty and South Horizons with three intermediate stations. Services will operate at peak headways of 3 min.

Once the south island line and the East Rail Line terminate at Admiralty, won't that station become dangerously overcrowded?

Yes, but the station is being expanded to handle all the transfers. The construction cranes are still there working on this.

MTR and market top Tung Chung wish list
The Standard Excerpt
Monday, October 27, 2014

A better MTR service, public market and park - those are the three things most Tung Chung people want to see.

The Community Development Alliance, founded by social workers to assist the poor, polled 200 residents on what facilities are required most in Tung Chung.

The three came out top.

The poll also showed that three out of 10 would like to have cheaper supermarkets not carrying exclusive brands as at the Citygate mall more banks, ATMs, pet shops and restaurants.

A similar proportion would like to see more swimming pools and 39 percent want improved transport links, with the Tung Chung MTR line serving more of the district.

Alliance community organizer Yeung Cheuk-shun said those who live in public housing at the Yat Tung Estate need to take a bus after getting off at the MTR station because it takes at least half an hour to walk.

"The proportion of public housing in Tung Chung is high," Yeung said.

MTR express their interest in tendering for the procurement of new trains to replace existing trains running on the Island Line, Kwun Tong Line, Tseung Kwan O Line and Tsuen Wan Line.

Means the older batch of MTR M-Trains going to retire by 2022?

Second worker at MTR site laid low with dengue
The Standard Excerpt
Tuesday, November 04, 2014



A second worker at a Sai Ying Pun MTR construction site was yesterday confirmed with the mosquito-borne dengue fever, health authorities said.

The 25-year-old man who lives in Po Kong Village Road, Wong Tai Sin, is in stable condition at the private Hong Kong Baptist Hospital, where he was admitted on Saturday.

The latest incident follows the first local case in four years, in which a 63-year-old man fell sick while working at the same site early last month. He was confirmed to have dengue fever on October 25.

Centre for Health Protection controller Leung Ting-hung said both men reported being bitten by mosquitoes at the site, located at the junction of Eastern Street and First Street.

"It's highly likely the origin is from the construction site," he added.

Leung said there will be sporadic cases coming up since the Aedes albopictus mosquito, a species that can transmit dengue fever, does not just bite one person.

"Aedes albopictus can be found in every district [in Hong Kong], so there will not only be two persons contracting dengue fever," he said, adding the mosquito incidence of the first case was on October 9 and the second on October 27.
