More details to come from MTRC on rail project
(04-29 18:57)

The MTR Corporation has said it has no intention of misleading lawmakers about the progress of the construction of the cross-border high speed rail link.
Some lawmakers have questioned whether railway operator had lied about the progress of the project in November, when they told councillors construction of the West Kowloon terminus had reached the lowest level, four stories underground.
But legislators who were given a site visit on Monday were told that excavation had only reached the third underground level.
Speaking at the site Tuesday, MTR's deputy general manager for projects and property, Maggie So, said excavation at the south end of the West Kowloon terminus has been completed, but progress at the north end has been impeded by technical difficulties.
She said the MTR will give more details about the progress during a Legco meeting next week. --RTHK
