Hong Kong Economic Journal Excerpt
Shatin-Central line tops XRL to become costliest HK rail project

Records are meant to be broken, but this particular one is not something that Hong Kong people would want to cheer.

On Tuesday, news surfaced that the estimate of the main construction works for the Shatin-Central Link (SCL), a new commuter rail link being put up by MTR Corp, has ballooned to HK$87.3 billion, making it the most expensive rail line ever in Hong Kong history.

The revised price tag for SCL puts it ahead of the controversial high-speed rail link to Guangzhou, which until now held the record in terms of the cost for Hong Kong taxpayers on rail projects.

The government had come under severe fire earlier for allocating HK$85.3 billion for construction of the local portion of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link (XRL), but now the SCL commuter line will cost even more.

MTR, which operates Hong Kong’s rail system, on Tuesday submitted the latest cost estimate of the SCL project to the Transport and Housing Bureau, putting the figure at HK$87.3 billion, representing an increase of HK$16.5 billion, or 23 percent, over the original entrustment cost of HK$79.8 billion.

Hong Kong Economic Journal Excerpt
Development chief dismisses talk of Lantau light rail plan

Secretary for Development Michael Wong Wai-lun dismissed rumors that a light rail system will be built on Lantau Island, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reports.

According to a media report, a government consultant has decided to focus its study on the feasibility of building a light rail route connecting Tung Chung and Tai O on Lantau Island, instead of building roads.

Reacting to the report, Wong said the Civil Engineering and Development Department did commission a consultancy study on how to further develop the island in July this year.

The consulting firm will study how to improve the island’s transportation system by looking at all sides of the issue and will not come up with its suggestions until 2019 at the earliest, Wong said.

As such, it is too early to say whether a light rail route will be built, he added.

Hong Kong Economic Journal Excerpt

Thousands stranded as MTR service disruptions hit East Rail Line

MTR Corporation saw services on its East Rail Line disrupted twice on Thursday, with the first one leaving thousands of rush-hour passengers stranded.

At about 9:25 a.m., the railway operator announced that services on the line connecting Hung Hom and Lo Wu had to be suspended due to a fault in the signaling system, the Hong Kong Economic Journal reports.

The disruption triggered chaotic situations in stations along the line.

Although shuttle buses were immediately arranged to help the stranded passengers get to their destinations, some of those outside Fanling Station complained that they could not get on a bus after waiting more than an hour.

A total of 14 trains were stuck on the tracks in between stations, with many passengers stranded in rail cars. Some of them tried to open the doors by themselves and jumped off the cars.

Chaos at Lo Wu Station was particularly serious as hundreds of students who arrived from Shenzhen in the morning were stuck there.

The line resumed service at around 11:30 a.m. after system repair was completed, but Lo Wu Station was still reportedly packed with stranded passengers as of noon.

Francis Li Shing-kee, MTR head of operations, apologized for the service suspension and promised to conduct a thorough investigation at the end of the business day at midnight.

At 5:50 p.m., an East Rail Line train heading to Kowloon Tong from Tai Wai suffered mechanical problems and dim lights in its cars. About 800 passengers were arranged to take another train at the Kowloon Tong Station.
