尖沙咀站增五出口 商戶憂影響生意
彌敦道一線封三年

28/06/2007
太陽報



【本報訊】尖沙咀地鐵站每小時人流達四萬人次,是全港人流最盛的地鐵站。為疏導人流,地鐵公司擬加建行人隧道、票務大堂及五個出入口,當工程於二○一二年竣工時,該站會成為全港最多出入口的地鐵站;而加建票務大堂的工程將採取明挖方式興建,彌敦道將有一條行車線要封閉,為期長達三年,地鐵認為工程不會對彌敦道交通帶來太大影響,但有商戶擔心施工期間會打擊生意。

地鐵公司高級統籌工程師鄧伯洪表示,新建的票務大堂位置接近重建中的東英大廈所在的彌敦道地下,工程會以明挖方式進行,施工期為三年,期間挖掘地點會間歇遷移,故此南及北行的彌敦道各一段約四十米的行車線,將輪流封閉。

預計2012年竣工
行人隧道工程則會以暗挖形式進行,新的行人隧道連同票務大堂,總長二百米,由尖沙咀北面月台開始,五個新增的出入口設於美麗華商場地庫、美麗華酒店地庫、重建後的東英大廈地庫、九龍公園及柏麗購物大道。鄧稱,工程對附近的交通不會構成太大影響。地鐵亦將於下月諮詢區議會,明年動工,預計二○一二年竣工。

位於柏麗購物大道的商戶楊小姐表示,附近一帶商舖月租由二十五萬元至四十多萬元不等,位置愈接近地鐵站,租金愈高。她擔心改善工程最終會令租金上揚,同時也擔心施工期間帶來滋擾,生意會受影響。

It's a great plan; hope will become reality soon.

Is there any plan that would help relieve the crowds in TST platforms? During rush hour people have to wait for 2 or 3 trains in order to squeeze themselves in.

Admiralty is just as bad as TST if not worse, after all, it feeds people into TST

No. The crowds are because the service demand is over capacity.
The train is already running at every 2-3 minutes. This is extremely frequent; and increasing frequency will also lead to safety concern with trains run to close to each other.

Having a larger platform and more room, you will feel more comfortable. But you are not going to be able to get on the train any sooner.

Of course but I don't think it's the crowded as TST. Admiralty is a main changing point. But for those coming in west, they can just ride it at Central.

Shouldn't the Tsuen Wan line along Nathan Road see less people these days as residents in Tsuen Wan can get there quicker using the Tung Chung Line to transfer at Lai King while east Kowloon and TKO residents can transfer at North Point instead?

That would be true. In fact I take the Tung Chung Line whenever I have to go to Mei-Foo from Central instead of going through Tsim Sha Tsui / Mongkok.

Well, that's the whole point of that interchange in Lai King. The Tung Chung Line serves as a relief line for the Nathan Road corridor. Hence some trains run to Tsing Yi only to accomodate the crowds.

But having said that, it costs more to take the TCL to Mei Foo from Central. If I have time, I know what option I'll take!

I guess situation at TST is similar to NYC Transit system; in a recent study you can see how some lines are just packed (on 4,5,6 trains like Tokyo Metro during rush hour-sardines)

In Admiralty, the station is much larger than TST, so it feels like there are less crowds, but in TST it's such a smaller platform compared to Admiralty. I think the crowds actually grew worst after the opening of ETST.

well, Admiralty was designed to be an interchange since the first day; but TST wasn't. As TST get more developed and connected with KCR, it is now handling more people than expected.

HKG station is not the same as Central station but, and, you have to exit the fare gates at Central to get to HKG as they are two seperate stations. I've looked at the fare site to see that it is standardised now, but when first introduced it wasn't.

No you don't need to leave Central station to get to HK station. There's a direct tunnel linking the platforms and you didn't have to pass through any barriers.

Actually, you do have to pass through barriers. Once you pass the tunnel from Central and walk pass the two travellators, you have to exit the paid area and take an elevator to the Hong Kong station concourse (bottom of IFC mall). If anyone visits the station, you could take a pic of a map showing the entire station layout.

LOL I knew I was right all along. Thanks for the clarification. I think the travellator is what you have to take. I didn't remember having to switch levels using an escalator.
