New issue of Trackrecord released
 
The current issue of Trackrecord reports on Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC)’s annual results for 2004 as announced by the Corporation’s Chairman Mr Michael Tien at a press conference held on 21 March 2005.
In a major article of Trackrecord, the state-of-the-art facilities of Tai Wai Maintenance Centre are featured. At a cost of HK$1.3 billion, the 61,000-square metre maintenance centre has been constructed to tie in with the opening of Ma On Shan Rail.
Another article covers the winning of the Grand Award in barrier-free transportation by East Rail, and the Awards for Convenient Facilities and Excellent Staff Service by Light Rail. Such awards are presented by the Barrier Free Concern Alliance in recognition of those public transport operators who have made travel easier for people with disabilities.
KCRC also seeks to improve the quality of life enjoyed by all in many other ways. Donation drives continued across the Corporation, ranging from the donation of food items, uniforms to old computers. Such donation programmes also helped KCRC in achieving its Environmental Targets set earlier in the year.
On a lighter side, KCRC Chairman Mr Michael Tien and a number of senior management attended the KCRC Media Fun Day together with over 60 media representatives. It was a fun-filled evening enjoyed by all those present.
Trackrecord, the official staff newsletter of the KCRC, is published once a month and distributed to all employees, the Corporation’s key stakeholders, senior government officials, the media and community leaders.
