Slight disruption of Light Rail service
Light Rail service between Tin Wing Stop and Hang Mei Tsuen Stop (six stops) was slightly disrupted for about 15 minutes this morning (19 September) after a light rail vehicle on route 720 stalled at Hang Mei Tsuen Stop due to a mechanical fault at about 7:00 a.m.
As a result, service of routes 720 and 721 in Tin Shui Wai was affected and feeder buses were immediately deployed to shuttle passengers between Tin Wing and Yau Oi.
Passengers were detrained from the stalled vehicle which was cleared from the site in about 15 minutes. Light Rail service resumed gradually from 7:15 a.m.
During the incident, continuous platform announcements were made to inform passengers of the service disruption and staff were deployed at stops to assist passengers.
The Corporation apologised for the inconvenience caused to passengers.
