Test runs on the Train Control System
In order to provide a more reliable and punctual train service, Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation will undertake a software upgrade on the Train Control System. Test runs on East Rail trains have to be carried out after the close of traffic on 23 June.
"To ensure a smooth running of East Rail trains under the upgraded Train Control System, test runs on software application will have to be carried out. Test runs involving two trains will be carried out in both directions between Hung Hom and Lo Wu after the close of traffic so that train services in the daytime will not be affected," a spokesperson for KCR East Rail said.
The upgrade of the Train Control System is one of the many improvement projects that East Rail has been undertaking for service improvement.
