KCR East Rail temporary traffic arrangements on 26 & 27 July 2003
To facilitate the major works of the Hung Hom Station Track Remodelling Project, the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) will implement temporary traffic arrangements. Train services between Hung Hom and Mong Kok stations will be suspended between the late evening of 26 July and early morning of 27 July.
All East Rail trains will terminate at Mong Kok Station during the following periods of time:



26 July (Sat) 11:08 pm (after the last train to Lo Wu departed at Hung Hom Station) to 12:25 am
27 July (Sun) 5:30 am to 7:30 am
During the affected period, KCR East Rail will arrange 40 free shuttle buses to run between Hung Hom and Kowloon Tong Stations. Details are as follows:
Hung Hom Cheong Wan Road – K16 Bus stop

2 – 4 mins

Kowloon Tong – Festival Walk Bus stop

KCR East Rail reminds passengers to pay attention to station announcement and listen to the advice of station staff on the temporary traffic arrangements. Notices on the temporary traffic arrangements have been posted at all stations. Passengers can also call the KCR East Rail Customer Services Hotline at 26027799 for enquiry.
The track remodelling project in Hung Hom Station is part of the programme to tie in with the commissioning of Tsim Sha Tsui Extension in 2004. The project involves re-arranging the track layout of Hung Hom Station to facilitate East Rail to increase train frequency. When the project is completed in December 2003, passengers will be able to enjoy a more reliable train service and a more comfortable journey.
KCR East Rail apologises for the inconvenience caused to affected passengers.
