    Noticed very few 12 car trains left running on the East Rail line now (took some photos the other day as guessed it might my the last time on one) so guessed it was coming. Plus the labels over maps and the flashing LEDs network maps on the other lines have gone up ready for unveiling.

    This should make a huge difference to NT East, East Kowloon.

    What is the plan for the big train station above. Large plot of land in a prime location.

    I'll see it when I believe it.

    One month to enjoy a long-awaited project.

    The bridge, and that bloody train station... boy were those a big wait for nothing. By Chinese construction standards, they will be falling to pieces before anyone uses them again.

    This project like the MTR to the southside are needed by the city.

    Couldn't agree more! And thank goodness it is to enhance the daily lives of Hong Kongers, not make the city more crowded.

    What could go wrong with an extra line at an overly crowded station?

    People going from the East Rail line to the Island line will have done it by going via Kowloon Tong and Prince Edward and through Admiralty anyway, this is just more convenient and will lower traffic at Kowloon Tong which has already been improved by the Tai Wai-Diamond Hill link. Sure, a few people may jump from busses due to the convenience, but improving the long daily schlep of ordinary people from north to south and back again is a good thing.

    Mong kok not Prince Edward . Oh and as a Taipo resident often travelling to the Island, this extension is God sent. Yes we have the 307 bus but I have a half hour walk to get to the nearest stop.
