Spur Line Exhibition to be launched
To enhance the public understanding of how and why the gazetted alignment was chosen for the proposed Sheung Shui to Lok Ma Chau Spur Line (Spur Line), Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation will stage an exhibition at KCR Hung Hom, Mong Kok, Kowloon Tong, Sha Tin and Sheung Shui stations, starting from this Saturday, 7 October 2000.
Featuring information panels and a 20-minute video, the exhibition explains the urgent need of the Spur Line, the choice of route and why Long Valley, the privately owned man-made agricultural wetland, cannot be avoided. It also gives a brief account of the mitigation measures that will be taken to minimise the impact on the affected areas at Long Valley.
Concurrently, reader-friendly leaflets which echo the information panels will be distributed at the exhibition and via all KCR Customer Services Centres and East Rail Stations.
