Progress of new projects covered in new issue of Trackrecord
 
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) has been making excellent progress on its new railway projects, as one more milestone was reached on West Rail and plans were being prepared to advance the Lok Ma Chau Spur Line project.
In the current issue of Trackrecord we look at recent events marking the advancement of these projects. The topping out of the KCRC Pat Heung Maintenance Centre at the end of January was one such event, as VIPs and KCRC senior management gathered to commemorate the completion of the structure for Hong Kong’s largest train depot.
One week later the Secretary for Transport, Mr Nicholas Ng, toured a number of other West Rail facilities as well as the site of the tunnel for the future Lok Ma Chau Spur Line. Trackrecord covers this visit by Mr Ng as well as a special exhibition outlining the Lok Ma Chau Spur Line project to the general public.
Also in the new issue of Trackrecord is a story on KCRC’s latest effort on behalf of Hong Kong’s charitable organisations. In response to more than 500 requests last year, KCRC has donated facilities for use by charities during fund-raising and promotional activities. As reported in our story, these facilities will be available free of charge.
