A month of transition at KCRC
In the current issue of Trackrecord we report on some of the events that will have long-term implications for the future of the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC).
Foremost among these was the appointment of Mr Michael Tien as the new chairman of KCRC. After the announcement was made on 24 December, Mr Tien said that he "look[ed] forward to working closely with the Managing Board and the executives as a team so that KCRC can continue to play a pivotal role in expanding and improving Hong Kong’s railway services."
Also covered in the current issue is the completion of the West Rail viaduct, the longest bridge structure in Hong Kong. Financial Secretary the Honourable Antony Leung took part in the ceremony commemorating the completion of the viaduct on 13 December. The 13.4 km viaduct represents 44% of the alignment’s length.
Other stories in Trackrecord look at the awarding of a new ISO 9001:2000 Corporate Certificate to KCRC, the first organisation in Hong Kong’s transport industry to earn this distinction; the renovation of Light Rail’s Tuen Mun Bus Depot; and the various safety campaigns conducted by the Corporation across Hong Kong.
Trackrecord, the official staff newsletter of the KCRC, is published once a month and distributed to all employees, the Corporation’s key stakeholders, consulates, senior government officials, the media and community leaders.
