Rail firms to push on with screens work

Carol Chung

Saturday, May 05, 2007

Hong Kong's two rail operators have promised to speed up the second phase of the installation of platform screen doors and automatic platform gates, the first phase of which began 10 years ago.
"The [MTR Corp] project has already taken 10 years at the expense of passengers' money and also public safety," the Legislative Council's transport panel chairman, Andrew Cheng Kar-foo, said Friday at a subcommittee meeting discussing the proposed merger between the MTRC and Kowloon-Canton Railway Corp.

The concept emerged in 1996 when MTRC considered the benefits and feasibility of retrofitting platform screen doors at stations to improve safety on the platforms.

The first phase to install 74 platform screens at 30 underground stations on the Kwun Tong, Tsuen Wan and Island lines, which was completed last year, cost HK$2 billion. Half of the project cost was to come from passengers, with the MTR adding 10 HK cents for each trip paid for with an Octopus card.

These contributions began in July 2000 and will continue until the HK$1 billion is paid up.

The MTRC promised to complete the remaining installations at its eight at- or above-ground stations by 2012, while KCRC promised to finish its seven stations by 2013.

The installation takes time because the stations are above-ground with different air ventilation conditions and require a different feasibility study than underground stations, MTRC operations director Andrew McCusker said. Before a timetable can be released next April, a feasibility study is needed and this is expected to be completed by the end of this year, he said.

KCRC chief executive James Blake said the company must also deal with the big gaps between trains and the curved platform edges at some stations by installing an automatic mechanical gap filler system before platform doors can be installed.

Lawmakers also questioned the role of the government in monitoring a speedy completion of the project.

Most of the KCR stations are outdoors as opposed to underground (except E. Tsim Sha Tsui, etc.).

I like how the MTR's stations are well maintained so they still feel kind of "new" even though you can tell from some stations that they are from another decade from looking at the tiles.

The MTR has retiled stations such as Yau Ma Tei and Mong Kok they look really good.

I can't recognize Yau Ma Tei anymore. The old colours are still well engrained in my mind. Shek Kip Mei doesn't have many tiles anymore either.
