The components and functions of the SCL are:-

*
Tai Wai to Hung Hom (11km long) : Extension of Ma On Shan Line from Tai Wai to Hung Hom, via South East Kowloon and then connect to Kowloon Southern Link and West Rail Line. This railway line will significantly increase the Shatin-Kowloon capacity and provide railway service to the new developments in South East Kowloon.
*
Fourth Rail Harbour Crossing (6km long) : Extension of the East Rail Line across the harbour to Hong Kong Island. This railway line will increase the cross-harbour rail capacity and enhance the connectivity between the new territories and Hong Kong Island.

New line will boost tourism

Building a light rail link between Hong Kong and Zhuhai is feasible.

The tourism industry in Hong Kong has been badly hit by the financial crisis. A convenient transport link should be built between Hong Kong and Zhuhai so that more people from the mainland visit our city.

I realise that environmentalists have warned that our natural environment will be at risk if this rail link goes ahead. I think we should try and strike the right balance between the needs of the economy and the environment.

Rail link must balance all costs

I refer to the report ("Zhuhai link proposed", February 4).

There is no doubt that a link between the two cities will bring many benefits including job opportunities.

A light rail link will cut the time it takes to travel to and from Hong Kong and Zhuhai.

However, these benefits are primarily economic in nature. We must also consider the environmental drawbacks: for instance, birds and wildlife will be disturbed during the construction of this line and once it is operating. Valuable land will be used up.

A sustainable city is able to strike a balance. The economic, social and environmental aspects of a project must all be taken into account. Our fragile environment must not be sacrificed in order to make a profit.

Parents of children at Bonham Road Government Primary School are fighting the MTR Corporation (SEHK: 0066)'s plan to site a ventilation shaft next to the school.

They say it will expose pupils to harmful fumes.

William Fok Ming-fuk, chairman of the school's parent-teacher association, said parents had been fighting the proposed shaft, to be built as part of the West Island Line, for two years and time was running out to stop it.

Mr Fok said only a narrow lane separated the shaft from classrooms, meaning students would constantly be exposed to pollutants such as carbon dioxide.

These maps of Asian metro systems are beautiful. There may be a way to re-imagine the LUL standard chart that everyone uses.

Most transit systems are subsidized, but why aren't they free? Compared to what is invested in supporting the automobile, the cost would be negligible. In the US over 80% of the money spent on transportation supports the automobile.
