That's odd. Maybe they want the doors to be less imposing to the little kids.

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

erm... I don't understand the above statement... for underground ones only? The station near Disneyland is above-ground, right? The 30 stations mentioned in the article did not include above-ground ones?
Nope. Only underground stations received PSD. The above ground station did not. The possibility by far is probably those Platform Screen Gates @ Sunny Bay.

Dont really know about that, but probably 30 million USD or more?? As for the 2 billion HKD cost, it is only for the old stations that are being renovated with PSD.

The open-air stations will cost far less to install automatic gates in because they do not involve climate control modifications.

I didn't know installation of platform doors is so expensive. No wonder SMRT (Singapore) did not want to install them on above-ground stations.

looking at the last pic... it is necessary to have the platform doors... otherwise, naughty kids (and maybe adults) may run across those tracks.

Because some commuters climb over the screen doors.

Usually these types of accidents involve suicides or even homicides. These statistics are not regularly published in many cities to prevent copy-cats. Some cities even have a moratorium on reporting subway suicides. Nevertheless, one purpose of platform screen doors or these gates is to prevent anyone from falling off the platform and stumbling onto the tracks.

Last year, Singapore MRT had more such accident like this, the SMRT had discussed about install the PSG on aboveground station, but safety issue as there was the risk that passengers might get trapped in the gap created between the platform gates and the train as a result of the platform gates.

One kid almost got himself killed on the HK MTR when he got trapped between the closing screen doors and the train. But these are really things that shouldn't happen because they're caused by human negligence.

That video is so repetitive...heh. I also have two other railway-themed music videos that some really idle HKers made.

I took Airport Express from Airport to Kowloon and back. It was fast and efficient. Inside, it was comfortable and clean.

But, I never knew how it look on the outside...
