HONG KONG PREPARES TO EXPAND RAIL NETWORK

Some of the issues that Hong Kong's Second Railway Development Study is urgently addressing include the introduction of low speed maglev trains as one means of tackling noise pollution and the expected rise in the weekday ridership from the current 2.3 million to 3.6 million. The main thrusts of the study are to relieve bottlenecks in the existing railway networks, to provide rail access to strategic growth areas for housing and economic development, to stimulate further development along rail corridors, to meet cross-boundary passenger and freight demands, and to ensure compatibility and integration with the railways in mainland China.
