There are continual debates regarding how and where to expand the MTR network. As a successful railway operation, the MTR has served as a model for other newly built systems in the world, particularly urban rail transit in China.
During the s, the government of Hong Kong saw a need to accommodate increasing road traffic as Hong Kong's economy continued to grow strongly. The study suggested that four rail lines be developed in six stages, with a completion date set between December and December The study was submitted to the Legislative Council on 14 February The consultants received new data from the by-census on 6 March A short supplementary report was submitted on 22 March and amended in June The by-census indicated that the projected population was reduced by more than one million from the previous estimate to 5,, The dramatic reduction affected town planning.
The population distribution was largely different from the original study. In this updated scenario, the consultants reduced the scale of the recommended system. The supplementary report stated that the originally suggested four tracks between Admiralty station and Mong Kok station should be reduced to two, and only parts of the Island line, Tsuen Wan line, and Kwun Tong line should be constructed for the initial system.
The other lines would be placed in the list of extensions. In , a system with four lines was laid out and planned as part of the British consultants' new report, Hong Kong Mass Transit: Further Studies. Several weeks later, in early , the Mass Transit Steering Group was replaced by the Mass Transport Provisional Authority, which held more executive powers. Plans for a single contract were abandoned in favour of 25 engineering contracts and 10 electrical and mechanical contracts.
The northern section was completed on 30 September and was opened on 1 October by Governor Murray MacLehose. The first train drivers were trained on the London Underground. On later extensions to the railway the stations were designed under the supervision of Roland Paoletti , the chief architect at MTR. In , the first harbour crossing was made by an MTR train as the Kwun Tong line was extended to Chater station, since renamed Central station.
Trains were extended to six cars to accommodate an increase in passenger numbers. The government approved construction of the Tsuen Wan line in , then known as the Tsuen Wan Extension, and works commenced in November The project added a The plan was modified from that in the report Hong Kong Mass Transit: Several stations also had names different to that during planning: When service of this line started, the section of the Kwun Tong line from Chater to Argyle since renamed Central and Mong Kok stations respectively was transferred to the Tsuen Wan line.
Thus, Waterloo station since renamed Yau Ma Tei station became the terminus of the Kwun Tong line, and both Argyle and Prince Edward stations became interchange stations.
This change was made because system planners expected the traffic of the Tsuen Wan line to exceed that of the Kwun Tong line. This forecast proved to be accurate, necessitating a bypass from the northwestern New Territories to Hong Kong Island. The Tung Chung line was therefore launched in with an interchange station at Lai King for that purpose.
Although land acquisitions were made for a station at Tsuen Wan West, beyond Tsuen Wan station, as part of the Tsuen Wan branch, the station was never built. This is not to be confused with the modern-day Tsuen Wan West station on West Rail line , which lies on a newly reclaimed area near the former ferry pier.
Since opening in , the Tsuen Wan line is the line whose alignment has remained the same for the longest time. Government approvals were granted for construction of the Island line in December Construction commenced in October Both Admiralty and Central stations became interchange stations with the Tsuen Wan line.
Furthermore, each train was extended to eight cars. Construction was delayed for one year, as government offices which were located over the station had to be moved before the construction could start.
In , the government approved the construction of the Eastern Harbour Crossing , a tunnel to be used by cars and MTR trains. The Kwun Tong line was extended across the harbour on 5 August to Quarry Bay station , which became an interchange station for the Kwun Tong line and the Island line.
An intermediate station, Lam Tin , started operations on 1 October The Airport Express and Tung Chung line started services in Construction started in November , after the Chinese and British governments settled their financial and land disagreements. The new line was included in the financing plans of the new Hong Kong International Airport as the airport was not considered viable without direct public transport links. Construction costs were also shared by the MTRC, which was granted many large-scale developments in the construction plans for the new stations.
The Airport Express also offers flight check-in facilities at Kowloon station and Hong Kong station —the in-town check-ins offer a more convenient and time-saving routine; a free shuttle bus service transports travellers from these stations to their respective hotels as well. Porters are also available to help transport luggage from and onto trains. In , it had a However, this has drastically declined from a peak of 32 per cent in The project was initiated due to overcrowding at Quarry Bay and persistent passenger complaints about the five-minute walk from the Island line platforms to the Kwun Tong line platform.
Construction of the Tseung Kwan O line called the Tseung Kwan O extension line in the planning stage was approved on 18 August to serve new housing developments. Construction began on 24 April and the line officially opened in Construction costs were partly covered by the Hong Kong Government and private developers which linked construction of the Tseung Kwan O Line to new real estate and commercial developments.
The interchange between the Tsuen Wan line and the Kwun Tong line, as well as that between the Kwun Tong line and the Tseung Kwan O line, are two stations long, allowing cross-platform interchange wherein a passenger leaves a train on one side of the platform and boards trains on the other side of the platform for another line.
This design makes interchanging more convenient and passengers do not have the need to change to different levels. However this interchange arrangement is not available for all transferring passengers at Kowloon Tong , Central , Hong Kong , Quarry Bay , Nam Cheong except transfer between Tuen Mun and Hong Kong bound trains , Mei Foo , Tai Wai station except alighting from Ma On Shan line to change to southbound trains for East Rail line and Sunny Bay except transfer between Tung Chung and Disneyland Resort bound trains stations, mainly because this service is available only when there are two continuous stations shared as interchange stations by two lines.
Two major works were undertaken to ease interchange between the Kwun Tong line and East Rail line. The modification of Kowloon Tong station started in June A new pedestrian link to Kowloon Tong Station southern concourse and a new entrance Exit D opened on 15 April to cope with the increase in interchange passenger flow. Service to Sunny Bay station on the Tung Chung line started in The new line and the Disneyland Resort station opened on 1 August The Disneyland Resort station itself was designed to blend in with the ambiance of the resort.
The line operates fully automated trains running every four to ten minutes without a driver. The carriages are refurbished M-train rolling stock to match the recreational and adventurous nature of the 3. The station opened on 20 December along with the exhibition centre. To cope with the projected increase in patronage, Airport Express trains were lengthened to eight carriages from the previous seven.
Additional trains are also deployed on the Tung Chung line during major exhibitions and events. The offering involved the sale of about one billion shares , and the company now has the largest shareholder base of any company listed in Hong Kong.
MTRCL has often developed properties next to stations to complement its already profitable railway business. Many recently built stations were incorporated into large housing estates or shopping complexes. For example, Tsing Yi station is built next to the Maritime Square shopping centre and directly underneath the Tierra Verde housing estate. A passenger could travel on these networks with only one ticket, except where a transfer is made between Tsim Sha Tsui and East Tsim Sha Tsui stations, where two tickets are required.
Student discounts on Octopus Card were also issued. The MTR system has been extended numerous times since the railway merger. The project is divided into 9 to 13 phases and is about halfway complete as of The West Island Line , first put forward to the government on 21 January , is an extension of the Island line. The construction of the West Island Line started on 10 August Sai Ying Pun station opened later, on 29 March , due to construction delays. Construction is underway to upgrade the existing infrastructure of the MTR.
New subway links to the stations are also being made for better access.
The Sha Tin to Central Link project will create two new rail corridors upon completion. The section from Hung Hom to Admiralty , across Victoria Harbour , is expected to be completed in This will be an extension of the East Rail line. It will alleviate traffic in the northern part of Hong Kong Island. There will be three new stations: Construction is expected to begin in and finish in The architecture of MTR stations is less artistic, instead focusing on structural practicability.
With the high level of daily passenger traffic, facilities of the MTR stations are built with durability and accessibility in mind. After extensive retrofitting, the MTR system has become, in general, disabled-friendly —the trains have dedicated wheelchair space, the stations have special floor tiles to guide the blind safely on the platforms, and there are extra wide entry and exit gates for wheelchairs as well.
Portable ramp for wheelchair users are available for boarding and alighting trains. On board the rolling stock, there are also flashing system maps on select trains while Active Line Diagrams and traditional route maps are installed on the others. Infopanels as well as on MTR In-Train TV onboard trains display important messages such as next station announcements as well as operational messages.
Passengers with subscription services will be able to make video calls and access high speed video content on their mobile phones regardless whether the train is above ground or under ground.
In late it was announced that all payphones in the MTR system would be removed in early The contract with the service provider, Shinetown Telecom, was expiring, and the MTR Corporation said that no one had tendered a proposal to take over the contract. When the system opened, public announcements were made in British English and in Cantonese by train captains and station staff.
Unlike many other metro systems around the world, "main line" MTR stations originally did not have toilet facilities available for public use. Passengers may use MTR staff toilets at all stations on request. In , MTRCL said it would not consider retrofitting existing underground toilets, because of the challenge of installing new piping and toilet facilities.
During the Legislative Council rail merger bill discussions, the MTR Corporation was criticised by legislators for their unwillingness to install toilets in main line stations.
This resulted in MTRCL agreeing to include the provision of toilets within, or adjacent to, stations in the overall design parameters for all future new railway lines, subject to planning and regulatory approval and any concerns raised by residents in the vicinity about the location of external ventilation exhausts.
In addition, newly opened stations such as those of the West Island Line have toilets. The MTR plans to install public toilets at all interchange stations by In late the MTR introduced breastfeeding rooms at 20 interchange stations. The rooms are located in back of house areas, and are available upon request to MTR staff.
Since then, the number and types of shops have increased at stations has increased, turning some of them into miniature shopping centres.
ATMs and convenience stores are now commonplace. Recruit was the first free magazine which was solely distributed in stations before railway merger since July , but the contract was terminated in July MTR promotes reading of these newspapers by adding special coupons and promotion offers inside the newspapers, for example, a free trip to Lok Ma Chau or a free keyring. These bus routes, which normally consist of one to two stops, terminate at housing estates and go past major landmarks.
Seven types of electric multiple unit rolling stock operate on the MTR network and four generations of light rail vehicles operate on the light rail network. Except for Airport Express trains, all trains are designed to cope with high patronage, for example, through seating arrangements, additional ventilation fans , and additional sets of extra-wide doors.
Known as M-trains, these are the oldest model of train in operation. M-Trains can be divided into different "stocks". The Disneyland Resort line uses driverless M-trains with their appearance overhauled to suit the atmosphere and theme of the line.
Windows on each carriage and the handrails inside are made into the shape of Mickey Mouse 's head, and there are bronze-made Disney characters decorating the interior of the carriages.
Initially run in seven-car formations, they have now been lengthened to eight cars. Since , K-stock has also been used on the Tung Chung line. Limited in October with a further 12 trains ordered in the summer of The first of these trains entered revenue service on 7 December on the Kwun Tong line. The South Island line uses a similar train known as the S-train.
Unlike the original C-train, the pantographs are on the A cars. All cars are powered, so there are no trailer cars.
The S-train is also only three cars long and are driverless, with the driver's cab removed with space for passengers.
However, the S-trains can still enable manual operation in the event of an emergency. Should the need arise in the future, dual voltage trains such as those utilised on Oresund Bridge would be required. They did not receive major changes after the merger of the two companies except for the updated route map, the exterior company logo and such.
