West Rail property development
In response to media enquires about a press report that KCRC is planning to reduce the size property projects along West Rail, a KCRC spokesman said, "The Corporation is Government's agent for the development of property sites along West Rail. Development proposals for the Nam Cheong and Tsuen Wan West sites have been approved by the Town Planning Board.
"Having listened to concerns from some quarters about the wall effect of large property development, the Corporation has undertaken a general air ventilation study to support the property development proposals within its network. The results are still under review by the Corporation, and at this stage, the way forward for the development of these sites is still unchanged.
"The press report about an intention to change the development proposals already approved by the Town Planning Board is pure speculation," the spokesman said.
