Light Rail temporary service arrangement
To facilitate Light Rail Extension works at the junction of Tin Fuk Road/Tin Yiu Road/Ping Ha Road in Tin Shui Wai, Light Rail service between Tin Shui Wai Terminus and Hang Mei Tsuen Stop (six stops) will stop running early from 11:00 p.m. on the night of 27 September (Friday).
During this short period of partial suspension, temporary bus service will be provided. Light Rail routes 720 (Yau Oi - Tin Shui Wai) and 721 (Yuen Long - Tin Shui Wai) will terminate at Hung Tin Road Emergency Platform where passengers can interchange for free feeder bus service to and from Tin Shui Wai. It is estimated that about 2,000 passengers will be affected.
During that night, the service of all other stops will remain unchanged.
The Traffic and Transport Committee of Yuen Long District Council has been consulted and members generally agreed to the above service arrangements.
Platform assistants will be deployed to all affected stops to assist passengers. Notices and platform announcements will be made to inform passengers about the above service arrangements.
For enquiries, passengers can call the Light Rail hotline at 2468 7788.
