Passage of Merger Bill Welcomed
In response to media enquiries, the Chief Executive Officer of KCRC, Mr. James Blake said, "KCRC welcomes the decision by Legco today as an important step towards the merger of the KCR and MTR rail systems. The Corporation is working towards the earliest possible completion of corporate activities on its part, necessary to enable the Government’s formal announcement of the date on which a merger would take place.
"With the clearer way forward, KCRC staff will be better placed to address the future in a positive manner. The Corporation believes that the extensive consultation and joint-staff exercise so far have provided staff with the right measure of confidence needed to take advantage of today's decision by Legco members."
