Over the last 20 years, Hong Kong has developed a comprehensive network of road and rail links between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island to supplement the long-established passenger and vehicle ferry system. Recently, attention has focussed on the possibilities for improved local communications, with rail projects such as the Kowloon Sky Rail and Central S Island railways receiving attention. This paper summarises the Sky Rail proposals recently submitted to Government by a privately financed consortium who have proposed that an elevated light rail system be constructed in southern Kowloon. The Kowloon Sky rail is aligned on or close to existing road links and designed to improve both internal movement and accessibility to external transport facilities such as the Kowloon Canton Railway, cross-harbour and island ferries, bus terminals and major car parks. The proposed route of nearly 5 kms runs from a depot, on the new Hung Hom Reclamation, to the Hong Kong China Ferry terminal on Canton Road with nine stations at key points along the route. (TRRL)
