Gov't listening to rail views

August 08, 2017

Secretary for Justice Rimsky Yuen says the Government has attached great importance to public views on the co-location plan for the Hong Kong Section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link.


He told reporters today the Government has been listening to the views of people from different sectors on the plan since it was announced on July 25.


The question of co-location was raised when the express rail was planned and the issue has been discussed in the community.


He said: "In the 2007-08 Policy Address the then Chief Executive also positively said the Government would be studying the possibility and flexibility of implementing co-location at the West Kowloon Station. And thereafter on many different occasions including the occasions when application was made to the Finance Committee of LegCo for the relevant funding, the same issue was raised.


"So this question of co-location has been discussed, has been ventilated in the community for a considerable period of time, and therefore there has been considerable opportunity for different sectors of people, including lawyers, academics and people who are interested in development or transport, to express their view."


He added the Government will continue garnering feedback from different channels.
