MTR South Island Line (East) opens



Despite recent projections of further delays, the MTR Corporation has announced that the South Island Line (East) will commence service on Wednesday, December 28. The seven-kilometre railway will link up the south and north of Hong Kong, stopping at South Horizons, Lei Tung, Wong Chuk Hang, Ocean Park and Admiralty. “The SIL project team has worked hard to overcome the tremendous challenges at Admiralty Station,” said Mr Ken Wong, General Manager of the South Island Line. “Thanks to the effort of the team and our contractors, as well as the cooperation of relevant Government departments, we are on target to open the new line by the end of this year.” Hooray!

Minibus 69A will be extended to the Wong Chuk Hang MTR station and operate every 15 minutes from Mondays to Saturdays from 7am to 7pm and every 30 minutes on Sundays from 10am-5pm.
