Overnight test runs on KCR East Rail
Test runs will take place on KCR East Rail in the early morning of 13 January between Hung Hom and Lo Wu stations.
"The findings of the test runs will be useful for improving our signalling system," a spokesman for KCR East Rail said. In order not to affect the train services in the daytime which are used by 800,000 passengers daily, the test runs can only be carried out in the midnight after the close of traffic.
KCR East Rail apologised for the inconvenience caused.
