Policy Address


106.     A safe, reliable and highly efficient railway service is of paramount importance to the public transport system of Hong Kong.  The Government will continue to proactively carry out its duty as the majority shareholder of the MTRCL.  We will monitor the MTRCL and require the corporation to strengthen its management to ensure proper delivery of the planning and construction of new railways, as well as the daily operation of existing services.  For long-term development, we will, pursuant to the Railway Development Strategy 2014 announced last year, implement seven new railway projects in phases by 2031.

107.     The Government will conduct an in-depth study on public transport arrangements in Hong Kong.  In tandem with the railway network expansion, we will review the roles of other public transport services.  We will also continue to pursue bus route rationalisation.

108.     I announced the initiative on Universal Accessibility Programme in August 2012, which aims at expanding the scope of the Government's programme to retrofit existing public walkways with barrier-free access facilities to benefit the public.  The Government is taking forward more than 200 projects to retrofit barrier-free facilities, including the three priority projects identified by each DC.  It is expected that most of the projects will be completed in phases in the coming four years.
