2nd Mainland-HK rail link ready next year
Cross-boundary passengers will have another convenient option next year when the Lok Ma Chau Spur Line opens, with its immigration hall capable of handling about 150,000 travellers a day, Highways Department Railway Development Office Chief Engineer Chan Pun-kei says.
Recent years saw a continuous surge in cross-boundary passenger trips. The number of people going through Lo Wu rose 5% year-on-year in January, to 7.88 million. Lok Ma Chau saw a 17% surge, to 3.94 million.
