EMU night testing
A few test runs will take place on KCR East Rail in the early morning of 10 April after the close of traffic between Sha Tin and Tai Po Market stations.
The test runs will only involve about six trips in both up and down directions."The findings of the test runs will be useful for future upgrading of the signalling system," a spokesman for KCR East Rail said. In order not to affect the train services in the daytime which are used by 750,000 passengers daily, the test runs can only be carried out in the midnight after the close of traffic.
The KCR East Rail apologised for the inconvenience caused.
