"West Rail Coming Soon" roving exhibitions
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation has launched another round of "West Rail Coming Soon" roving exhibitions with a view to enhancing the public awareness of the forthcoming opening of West Rail and its services. The exhibitions will give information on West Rail's system features, service details, fares and interchanges with other modes of transport. A video on the new railway will also be shown.
The exhibitions will take place at different locations throughout Hong Kong. The schedule of exhibitions for September and October is as follows:
Date Venue
1 - 3 September Time Square, Causeway Bay
8 – 11 September Sunshine City, Ma On Shan Chung Fu Shopping Centre, Tin Shui Wai

The Corporation is now busily engaged in all sorts of preparatory works in order to tie in with the commissioning of West Rail scheduled for the fourth quarter of this year. Apart from the roving exhibitions, KCRC has stepped up its efforts to familiarise the public with West Rail services by organising a wide range of community outreach programmes, including briefings for schools and community centres, visits, TV documentaries and newspaper feature series.
