Beijing starts metro upgrading
1 May 2005
Railway Gazette International

BEIJING METRO Corp announced in March that it was starting work on a network-wide upgrading and renovation programme ahead of the 2008 Olympic Games.

Costed at 4.3bn yuan, the package includes replacement of track, trains, signalling and communications equipment on Lines 1 and 2, parts of which are now approaching 30 years old. A new smart card based fare collection system will also be introduced by the end of 2007, covering all metro lines in the Chinese capital.

In total 52.2km of track will be relaid. Around 180 trainsets will be replaced with new air-conditioned stock, and the signalling renewal will allow peak headways to be cut from 3min to 2.5min.

Hong Kong's MTR Corp, Beijing Capital Group and Beijing Infrastructure Investment Co have initialled the formal PPP concession agreement with Beijing Municipal Government to equip and operate Line 4, although this is still subject to approval by the National Development & Reform Commission.

The 29km route between Majialou and Longbeicun will be the capital's principal north-south metro line, serving 24 stations. Civil engineering has been underway since October 2003. The PPP concessionaires will provide the rolling stock and other E&M systems and operate the line. Total cost of Line 4 is put at 15.3bn yuan, of which the city will fund around 70%.

Bad colour, bad shapes. Make them more angular and get rid of the bronze. Replace it with chrome and glass, and then we're talking. This is a great idea as it improves the safety, comfort and technology of KCR East Rail, especially for passengers visiting from the mainland.

Legislators lash out at 'greedy' MTRC
Sylvia Hui, Hong Kong Standard
May 7, 2005



The MTR Corp was accused of being "greedy" and "socially irresponsible" by furious legislators who also described the HK$2 billion Disneyland Resort Line as a shady deal between MTRC and the government and demanded that the company lower the fares it charges.

Legislators attending a Legislative Council subcommittee meeting on railway matters Friday launched the attack when MTRC representatives told the meeting fares to Disneyland will be based on "existing fare structures."

"Although you say train fares to Disneyland are much cheaper than bus fares, there is no reason to base Disney trip fares using your existing structure," said democrat Andrew Cheung.

"Don't forget you are exempted from HK$800 million worth of dividends to the government."

The resort line, which is expected to transport 40 percent of the visitors to the theme park when it opens September 12, was initially considered not financially viable.

In 2002, the government, a major shareholder in the MTRC, agreed to waive its claim for HK$798 million worth of dividends.

Legislators accused the MTRC and the government of bypassing Legco when the 2002 decision was made. They also doubted the profitability of the venture and described the resort line as an overinvestment.

"The people give [the subsidized train line] their public money but MTRC pockets all the goods," said Cheng.

When asked to disclose financial projections for the line, MTRC deputy operations director Andrew McCusker said the information is commercially sensitive. He stressed the fares are highly competitive, but the company will review prices after assessing market response.

The fares ranging from HK$6 to HK$26 - much lower than proposed bus fares at HK$7 to HK$38 - triggered accusations the government is deliberately suppressing other public transport providers to ensure MTRC maintains a reasonable passenger flow.

The government and MTRC were urged to submit written replies on how and when the government will receive the waived dividends.

The attacks were followed by more criticism of MTRC's financial transparency. Legislators were furious when McCusker said that 10 cents charged to each Octopus journey from MTR passengers, aimed to subsidize the fitting of platform screen doors, will "go on indefinitely."

"At the time Legco approved this move we only agreed on charging passengers for the HK$2 billion construction cost of the screen doors," legislator Lau Kong-wah said. "We never agreed to charge people indefinitely for the doors' maintenance and cleaning costs."

Since July 2000 MTRC has collected HK$3 million from passengers for the screen doors, said McCusker.

The government was also accused of failing to maintain its role as gatekeeper of public interests.

MTRC's Disney line train, unveiled late last month, has two new stations at Sunny Bay and Disneyland.

The trains' four carriages, each carrying 180 passengers, are expected to be able to carry 11,000 people during peak hours. However, up to 17,000 people can squeezed in during extremely busy hours.

It is the first train line in the world specially dedicated to a theme park.

MTR's 10-cent door levy to continue
Elaine Wu
7 May 2005
South China Morning Post

Train passengers will have to continue paying an extra 10 cents on each ride to cover the cost of installation and maintenance of platform screen doors even after the MTR has finished fitting the doors next year.

Andrew McCusker, deputy operations director of the rail operator, told lawmakers on the railways subcommittee yesterday that the 10-cent surcharge was needed to pay for the upkeep and maintenance of the doors.

"There are lots of ongoing costs in terms of the platform screen doors," he said.

"And going into the future they will have to be renewed and upgraded, as all assets are."

His remarks angered some lawmakers, who said the fee should not be applied forever and should only be used for the construction cost of the doors.

The MTR has added the charge since 2000 for people who use the Octopus card to pay for their rides.

The company had estimated the surcharge would pay for about half of the $2 billion construction cost of the doors.

It had collected $300 million so far from the 10-cent fee, Mr McCusker said, but he did not say when MTR passengers could stop paying it.

Legislator Lau Kong-wah said: "This is like cheating in a way because at the time when [the company] spoke with us, they did not mention all the costs involved. Everyone had the impression [the fee] was for the construction cost."

The MTR began installing screen doors on platforms to separate passengers from train tracks in 2001.

It has completed the work at 24 underground stations and has six more to go before the project finishes early next year.

Mr McCusker said next year the company would start studying how to install the screens at above-ground stations.

Separately, Mr McCusker told the subcommittee yesterday that there was no room for giving passengers group or family discounts on the Disneyland Resort Line, which is scheduled to open in September.

Lawmakers argued that the rail operator should give the public more concessions on the rides because the government had helped to finance the project by waiving its claim for $798 million in dividends over a few years to which it was entitled as a shareholder.

They also questioned whether the four-car train line would be able to transport all the passengers going to Disneyland in the early morning rush hour and late night after the fireworks finished.

Deputy Secretary for Transport Cathy Chu Man-ling said the train line had a capacity of more than 10,000 passengers per hour, which should be enough to handle Disneyland's forecast of 11,000 hourly visitors during the morning hours.

Aside from the train line, Disneyland visitors would also be able to take buses and coaches to get to the theme park.

Ms Chu said minibuses have been ruled out because of their low capacity for passenger numbers.

Corporate Press Release
27 April 2005
CityU and MTR Win Prestigious International Award With AI Software

An Artificial Intelligence (AI) software system jointly designed and developed by Dr Andy Chun at City University of Hong Kong and the MTR Corporation has been honoured by the American Association for Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) with the “Innovative Application of Artificial Intelligence” Award 2005 (IAAI) in the category of “Deployed Applications”. This demonstrates CityU’s excellence in applied research and the University’s commitment to collaboration with industry leaders for the benefit of Hong Kong society.

The award-winning “AI Engine”, which has been in daily use since July 2004, is a component of the MTR’s Engineering Works and Traffic Information Management System. The “AI Engine” is an intelligent scheduling software for the efficient allocation and management of all engineering resources for the five existing MTR lines, Airport Express and the new Disneyland Resort Line scheduled to open soon.

“Ensuring the safety of engineering works and the consistently optimal usage of the railway system during the short few hours available overnight are the top priorities of the AI scheduling system. With CityU’s expertise in this area, we are pleased to work with them on this state-of-the-art project. MTR Corporation is committed to adopt latest technologies for the provision of a safe, efficient and comfortable mass transit railway system,” commented Ir Richard Keefe, Infrastructure Engineering Manager – Tseung Kwan O Line of MTR Corporation.

Dr Andy Chun, Associate Professor in CityU’s Department of Computer Science, is the only person in Greater China to have received this award to date. He is a local expert in applying AI technology to scheduling, and resource and manpower allocation. “I am delighted that we have won this prestigious award which recognizes CityU as one of the world’s leading technology innovators,” he said. “I believe our AI technologies can easily be applied to many different types of organizations in Hong Kong, to help them streamline operations and maximize performance and revenue.”

Since 1990, the annual IAAI has been awarded internationally to honour deployed applications with measurable benefits whose value depends on the use of AI technology. Founded in 1979, the AAAI is a nonprofit scientific society devoted to advancing scientific understanding of the mechanisms underlying thought and intelligent behaviour and their embodiment in machines.

每程收一毫 已進帳三億
地鐵榨財長收幕門費


07/05/2005



地鐵以地底車站加裝月台幕門為由,向八達通乘客徵收的每程一毫幕門附加費,擬「無限期」實施。地鐵解釋,有關安排是要彌補月台幕門計畫導致維修保養成本增加,但卻遭立法會議員猛烈抨擊。議員炮轟地鐵做法「豈有此理」及「欺騙乘客」,等同變相加價,因當年地鐵向立法會提交收取附加費的文件時,列明徵費只是「資助」工程費用,但卻無提及要乘客繼續負擔其他開支,更有議員批評等同「成世要畀錢資助地鐵」。

立法會交通事務委員會鐵路事宜小組會議,昨日討論地鐵加裝月台幕門計畫,由於所有路線的加裝工程將於明年初竣工,因此多名立法會議員促地鐵交代,會否於工程完結的同時,停止再向乘客徵收幕門附加費。

地鐵公司副車務總監麥國琛指出,地鐵在三十個地底車站加裝月台幕門,費用約二十億元,以一般鐵路系統可運作四十年計算,地鐵目標是與乘客各自分擔一半建造費,而幕門引致的額外維修保養支出亦應包括在內。他續指,地鐵由二○○○年起約收到三億元幕門附加費,因幕門需定期維修及更換,故不可能取消每程一毫的附加費。

變相收足一世

議員王國興怒斥地鐵的做法「豈有此理」,是變相向乘客收足一世附加費,這種安排等同「劉備借荊州、一去無回頭」,完全不能接受,應受譴責。他又指出,地鐵當年向立法會提交文件時,只列明所收取的附加費,是用作補貼安裝幕門的成本,但卻不包括營運、維修及清潔等開支,故他會要求地鐵向立法會遞交詳細帳目。

另一名議員劉江華亦稱,地鐵應在收回建造成本後停收附加費,地鐵的說法完全不合理。有議員動議,要求地鐵明年完成建造幕門後立即撤銷附加費,但委員會最後地鐵提供更多資料,留待下次會議再與地鐵詳細算帳。

對於地鐵打算繼續向八達通乘客收取附加費,民建聯昨晚發聲明表達強烈不滿,並指摘地鐵是企圖利用該項工程來間接壓榨乘客,增加車費。民建聯促地鐵承諾,當月台幕門工程完成後,立刻取消向乘客收取附加費。

地鐵發言人補充,地鐵為配合公眾需求而加裝月台幕門,但由於工程涉及龐大的成本開支,故需要由乘客資助部分費用,該公司會盡量向市民及立法會提供相關資料。

西鐵兆康屯門站爆蚊患

06/05/2005

【本報訊】炎夏將至,蚊患亦隨之而來。西鐵兆康及屯門站近日爆發蚊患,在附近工作的女職員雙腿被蚊叮至滿腳紅腫,商戶的生意亦大受影響,有商戶更投訴西鐵處事態度敷衍。區議員陳雲生指出兩站下面河道邊的大石罅隙是蚊患的源頭,促請西鐵盡早聯合政府部門合力滅蚊。

西鐵兆康站內一間商店店員表示,曾於黃昏一小時內,殲滅超過百隻蚊及蒼蠅。記者採訪期間,亦發現蚊隻於店內飛來飛去,穿裙的女職員更首當其衝。

屯門站商戶亦投訴受蚊患滋擾,情況沒有兆康站那麼嚴重。商戶曾向西鐵方面反映,但沒有得到正面回應及解決辦法。

Lower property earnings may derail profit growth
9 May 2005
South China Morning Post

MTR CORP SURPRISED the market with a 1 per cent rise in net profit to $4.49 billion for last year, but warned of waning property earnings.

The profit growth was spurred by a turnaround of the economy, which helped boost passenger numbers to a record and reduce losses at its core rail services to $313 million from $980 million in 2003. The semi-privatised corporation, which counts on property development income to fund rail investments, also benefited from an upturn in the property market, which enabled it to reap a profit of $4.56 billion.

"We effectively captured economic growth and converted it into operational growth," said chief executive Chow Chung-kwong. But he warned: "Although the property contribution will continue to serve as a growth driver in the coming two to three years the amount may not be as high."

Operating five urban rail lines and the Airport Express rail services, MTR Corp saw fare revenue jump 8.07 per cent to $5.93 billion last year. The five urban lines carried 833.6 million passengers last year, an increase of 8.3 per cent, while the Airport Express recorded 17 per cent growth with 8.01 million passengers. However, analysts said the improved performance could spark renewed calls for lower train fares.

Growth of the corporation's property profit last year tapered off to 14.9 per cent as the previous figure was inflated by the value of 18 floors in Two IFC.

Mr Chow said that in the next two years the MTR Corp would recognise profits from phase three of the residential development at Olympic station and the Lane shopping centre at Hang Hau Station.

The company will also put two phases of the Tseung Kwan O Dreamcity project up for tender in the second half of this year.

MTR's rail operations are still losing that much in one year? Passenger revenue should be at least HK$5 billion. Does it really cost that much to run the system?
