KCRC welcomes extension of boundary opening hours at Lo Wu
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation welcomes the government's decision on the extension of the Lo Wu boundary opening hours.
"We stand ready to serve an expanded cross-boundary market," a spokesman for the Corporation said.
"With effect from 1 December, the last train for cross-boundary passengers will depart Hung Hom at 11:07 pm while the last train for passengers returning from Shenzhen will depart Lo Wu at 00:30 am.
"The extension of the boundary opening hours by 30 minutes on a daily basis still leaves sufficient time for the overnight maintenance works to be carried out to ensure the safety and reliability of train services," the spokesman added.
