【太陽報專訊】年底在港舉行的世界貿易組織部長級會議,大批來自歐美韓等國的激進示威者,計畫衝擊本港地鐵沿線各站,以達到癱瘓公共交通工具服務之目的。警方掌握最新情報顯示,激進示威者極可能以前所未見的人鏈路軌行動,在繁忙時間阻斷地鐵服務。消息透露,地鐵警區已與地鐵公司組成風險評估小組,制訂連串方案。二千名地鐵前線員工已秘密演習,在世貿會議期間協助警方應變。

地鐵公司發言人承認,該公司一直與政府部門商討世貿期間地鐵的安全措施,亦會積極配合政府的需要,但發言人補充,相關細節暫不便透露,要留待政府日後公布。

目標:金鐘灣仔銅鑼灣站

情報顯示,該批來自歐美韓的激進示威者,很熟悉本港地鐵運作。為要使他們的抗議行動達到「嚇怕所有主辦世貿國家及地區」之目的,估計示威者會選擇人流最頻密、最靠近世貿會議場地的地鐵港島線金鐘、灣仔及銅鑼灣這三個站為衝擊目標。

由地鐵警區及地鐵公司組成的十八人風險評估小組在分析情報後,已制訂了最少五套緊急應變方案,以及多達百項因應不同情況的對策,除考慮到屆時示威行動會癱瘓港島線外,也預期會對地鐵全線交通造成嚴重影響。

消息稱,根據示威者過往在世貿會議舉辦地區的抗議行動,最激烈的都不會有恐怖襲擊。不過,情報顯示該批示威者會採取衝擊地鐵月台、集體跳落路軌、用鐵鏈將自己綁在路軌上,以圖阻塞地鐵交通,癱瘓整條地鐵線。

鐵筆撬開幕門集體跳軌

評估小組成員本月初先後前往金鐘、灣仔及銅鑼灣地鐵站月台視察,雖然發現這些月台都有幕門,一般人不易自行打開跳軌,不過,由於幕門的設計方便消防員在緊急時打開,故兩邊門中間由一條兩吋黑膠邊接合,如幕門失去電力開動,可方便消防員用鐵筆撬開。據悉,這種設計也同時方便了該批富經驗的「專業示威者」,他們只要乘他人不覺,用鐵筆撬開幕門,就可輕鬆跳落路軌,串成人鏈展開抗爭行動。

評估小組聯席會議按已收集的情報訂出應變計畫,包括應付地鐵站遭抗議群眾潛入地搗亂、車站內自綁在售票機或入閘機、月台內聚集抗議及以鐵鏈自綁、潛入路軌用鐵鏈自綁、破壞幕門強行跳落路軌自綁、衝入各車站控制室擾亂行車操作,以及擾亂車站內信號系統等的可能狀況。

地鐵亦為應付今次史無前例的擾亂行動添置新器材,包括最新式油壓剪刀,能在短時間內剪斷示威者用以自綁的鐵鏈,配合警員搬走在站內的示威者。

地鐵為了及早讓全線車站近二千名前線人員熟習應變工作,評估小組已將應變策略發放到各個車站,由各車站管理人員即時開展駐站人員演習及調動。在高風險的金鐘、灣仔及銅鑼灣站,更會由車站前線人員與警員聯合演練,希望透過純熟的演習,加強隊伍的合作性及應變行動。

English Brief translation:

There will be a WTO meeting in HK in dec and rumours are saying that some protesters will protest by forming a human chain on the tracks at Admiralty or Causeway Bay station. Even though these stations have Platform Screen Doors, but due to the fact for safety reasons, these doors can be wrenched open (so people can get to safety if there are accidents in the tunnel). The government and the MTR are devising plans to solve these problems in case it happens. Also the MTR has brought new equipments to treat these cases if it arises.

Caption Picture description: Computer generated image of protesters tying themselves in chains and lying on the tracks in order to cause chaos and disrupt train services.

MTR interested in Wuhan railway network
28 October 2005
NewsTrak Daily

Mass Transit Railway Corporation (MTR) shows great interest in exploring subway construction and management projects in China. It made a trip to Wuhan to study and observed Wuhan's transportation infrastructure in mid 2005.

MTR is interested in taking part in building and operating railway infrastructure in Wuhan. MTR wants to join the railways building and management project through open, fair and just competition. Earlier, Wuhan revealed that it was going to construct a railway network. The proposed network consists of seven major lines, 182 stations and a total length of 220km.

KCRC invites 10 developers to bid for Tuen Mun site
29 October 2005
South China Morning Post

Kowloon-Canton Railway Corp yesterday invited 10 developers to tender for its Tuen Mun Station residential project, which will consist of seven towers with about 1.29 million square feet gross floor area or 1,924 apartments.

The total investment involved is estimated at $6.4 billion.

Apart from splitting profit from property sales with KCRC, the successful developer has to pay the railway operation $123 million for the cost of providing the site before kickstarting construction and $250 million as the project is completed.

Tenders close on November 25.

MTR management unit expands with Beijing deal
Jamil Anderlini in Beijing
27 October 2005
South China Morning Post

The MTR Corp's mainland property management subsidiary yesterday signed a deal with developer Pan Shiyi to manage a large portion of his Jianwai Soho project in Beijing.

MTR (Beijing) Property Services is rapidly expanding its property management business across the mainland, particularly in Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing and Shenzhen.

"We hope to increase our floor space under management from the current 700,000 square metres to over a million square metres within the year," said president Gary Lau at the signing ceremony with Soho China.

The 300,000 sqmetre commercial, office and residential Jianwai Soho project is the largest property under MTR management on the mainland. Others in Beijing include Northstar Land, a 150,000 sqmetre commercial and residential complex, and Oriental Kenzo mall, which MTR is leasing with the first right of refusal to buy.

In Shanghai, MTR manages the 150,000 sqmetre Hong Kong Metropolis shopping and residential complex.

The property management subsidiary was established as a wholly foreign-owned entity in November last year under the Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement. Cepa allows Hong Kong companies access to mainland markets before the schedule laid out in China's World Trade Organisation accession agreement.

According to sources, MTR is also involved in bidding for a number of large-scale property development projects and has reached an agreement with the Beijing city government to build two additional subway lines in preparation for the 2008 Olympics.

MTR was awarded the contract in February for one 15.3 billion yuan subway line and has been bidding for two more. The three projects are worth an estimated 32 billion yuan.

Mr Lau refused to comment except to say that both the rail and property development sections of the company were "very busy".

Mr Pan said he picked MTR from seven or eight candidates bidding for the management rights to his development. He said there was still a gap in quality between MTR and Sci-tech, the Beijing-based property management firm responsible for the first phases of Jianwai Soho.

"I told the manager of Sci-tech that his goal is to catch up with MTR within six months," Mr Pan said.

He said sales of his properties had not been significantly affected by the government's efforts to cool the overheated property market and his company was always looking for new land to develop. "Like a dog hunting a rabbit, we're looking for public tenders to buy," he said.

At present, Soho is selecting a manager for its new Shangdu project and Mr Pan said MTR had a good chance of securing that agreement as well.

I forget if someone mentioned this but do ALL of Hong Kong's subway stations have that glass panel/ door to prevent people from falling down into the rail? or just the new stations?

^ Platform screen doors are currently being installed in all stations. New lines already have them, except the Disneyland Resort Line, which has platform gates.

You've missed a word in your sentence, "...currently being installed in all underground stations."

The retrofit project is almost complete, but all underground stations are also going through a climate control upgrade with new ceiling and floor trim. That is not near completion yet. Almost all the designated stations have been fitted with the screens, though.

It would be great if the Ocean Park terminal's under a giant fish tank, where when the train pulls into the terminal, you can see fish swiming around.

More rail accidents spark safety drive
1 November 2005
South China Morning Post

An MTR safety campaign will start today after an increase in the number of accidents involving escalators and train doors.

The campaign comes after a nine-year-old boy's fingers were caught in the doors when he tried to force his way out of the carriage because his mother and younger brother were still on the platform at Kowloon Tong yesterday morning.

The train had travelled 10 metres before passengers pressed the emergency stop button.

The boy was treated at Queen Elizabeth Hospital and discharged.

From January to September this year, 112 cases of passengers or their belongings being trapped in the train doors were reported, compared with 98 cases in the same period last year, MTR Corporation figures show.

Accidents on escalators also rose by 18 per cent in the same period compared with last year.

The MTR recorded 338 cases at the end of September, and more than 10 per cent of cases involved passengers with large items.

MTR Corp head of operations Wilfred Lau Cheuk-man blamed passengers' false belief about train doors for the increase in accidents.

"There is some misperception that train doors work like lift doors and will bounce open automatically when hitting an obstruction. Train doors can only be reopened manually by the train operator, when an indication in the driving cab tells him a set of doors has not closed completely," Mr Lau said.

He said it was safe for passengers to use the driverless train service offered on the Disneyland Resort Line.

"Though there is no train operator onboard, an operator monitors the service in a control room at Sunny Bay to handle any emergency that may occur," he said.

When asked if the MTR was planning to sack or redeploy 500 train operators and replace them with a driverless service, as reported in a newspaper yesterday, Mr Lau said: "I also want to find out the source of that information, and where the reporter concerned heard about it.

"We have no such plan in the near future. Switching to an automatic system requires a lot of research and study."

Mr Lau also reminded passengers carrying large items to use lifts to avoid accidents on escalators.

"We will also deploy 42 safety ambassadors to various MTR stations to remind passengers to be careful and not block train doors from closing or force their way onto a train," he said.

The one-month promotional campaign will feature a video, posters and stickers distributed in stations.

Meanwhile, services on the KCR Ma On Shan rail link were disrupted early yesterday after a train broke down in Tai Shui Hang Station, leaving 100 passengers stranded on the platform.

Initial investigations show a broken overhead wire which links the train to the electric cable caused the train to stop.

The Montréal Métro newspaper has a section for the STM (Montréal Transit Commission) to put on news about the company. They also do an introduction to metros worldwide each month. This month, in its 34th installment, the story is about Hong Kong, one of my favourite metros in the world. It's usual stuff about the history of the MTR, but it also has a table comparing Montréal Métro with Hong Kong MTR, which I found pretty interesting. Hong Kong apparently handles much more passengers per station with slightly less stations than Montréal! It's noted in the article that Hong Kong has one of the highest per KM ridership in the world. I also find it interesting that the Disney trains are fast becoming the most prominent features of the MTR.

You can see the article here (French, pdf file)

Most accidents arent MTR's fault IMO, a person should be smart enough to know that when a train door is closing, you DO NOT rush in, trains come every 3 minutes or less so there is no need to rush into the train anyway.

2012年全電腦控制 列車無人駕駛
地鐵500司機等炒

31/10/2005



【專案組報道】地鐵公司五百名列車司機將面對調職或失業。地鐵部署的無人駕駛計畫進入第三階段,稍後會展開無人駕駛各線列車兩年試驗計畫,○七年開始逐漸減少列車司機數目,預算在二○一二年所有列車將推行全電腦控制的「無司機駕駛」系統。受影響的司機均擔心飯碗不保,希望地鐵及早公布轉職安排及培訓計畫。

現時地鐵各線列車行車程序,無論是行車速度、入站出站的安排,以至各條車線的配合接駁,均由電腦全盤控制,列車司機需做的工作相應減少,主要是在信號系統出現問題或遇上突發事故才改為人手操作列車,形成司機的工作日漸減少。

地鐵發言人表示,現時該公司只在迪士尼線使用「無司機駕駛」列車,至於其餘的線路將來會否投入該些列車,則要留待日後公布。

自動系統從未出意外
地鐵在兩年多前經已在各個主要車站套用列車自動掉頭系統,這是研究無人駕駛列車的首階段研究,現時研究已完成並全面投入服務,在北角、荃灣、上環及杏花 等站,均全部使用無人駕駛列車自動掉頭系統,但該系統只在沒有乘客時採用。另一項成功產品是機場無人駕駛小型列車,運作至今並沒有任何問題。

無人駕駛列車第二階段由今年七月開始,系統經過多年研究,並在機場載客小列車使用後,套入現時迪士尼線使用,成為本港最大型的無人駕駛載客列車。

司機盼更多工種轉職
地鐵現正展開港九各線列車全面投入無人駕駛系統,預算用兩年時間作研究,期間部分列車在無人駕駛下,加入日常行車的運作,測試列車在該種操作下的各項準繩。地鐵預計經兩年試驗後,可取得更多數據去改善現行系統,逐步增加無人載客列車的數目,從○七年往後五年,完成整個無人駕駛計畫。

現時地鐵約有五百名列車司機,該公司會推行多項離職及再培訓計畫,讓受影響的司機參加,經訓練後調派其他工作崗位,以減少司機失業。

地鐵部分司機表示,現時該鐵路列車運作幾乎全部依靠電腦,穩定性相當高,套用無人駕駛是無可厚非,希望公司有更多工種選擇轉職以維持現有司機的就業。但新系統發展完成後,各站亦需要訓練懂得駕駛列車的車務人員,在發生突發事故時供調派人手操作列車。

Convincing the public that their jam-packed trains will not have a driver may well be the next public relations disaster. Many commuters are weary of relying solely on the computer for their safety. It's always better to have a set of eyes looking at what's ahead.
