(04-15 18:18)

The Secretary for Transport and Housing, Anthony Cheung Bing-leung, said on Tuesday that the high speed rail link project connecting Hong Kong and Guangzhou will not be completed on time in 2015.
Cheung said he was told by the MTR Corporation last weekend that based on its latest assessment, the project will be subject to "some delay". He said he was surprised by the news.
Cheung said the Highways Department has been ordered to conduct an independent review on the matter.
The construction of the HK$66 billion project started in 2010. --RTHK
