Another SCL milestone – “New members” joining the East Rail Line…!
To facilitate the East Rail Line (EAL) extension across the harbour under the Shatin to Central Link (SCL) project, the new EAL signalling system will commence operation starting from 12 September (Saturday). It is not easy at all to replace the signalling system on an operating railway line as most of the works had to be completed within the short period of non-traffic hours. With the efforts of the teams who spent over 400 nights racing against time, the new system will soon be put into service.
Other members to greet you on the same date are the new 9-car EAL trains manufactured in South Korea! They will gradually replace the existing 12-car trains over the coming 18 months. Rest assured that we will strive to maintain smooth train services during the mixed-fleet operation. Measures will also be in place at stations to assist passengers for comfortable journeys.
