Govt to study Kowloon monorail plan
(05-20 17:51)

The government plans to carry out a HK$92-million feasibility study on building an elevated monorail system in Kowloon East.
The Development Bureau intends to submit a funding request to the Legislative Council late this year. It says the study will include the alignment of the monorail, and whether it can extend to areas as far as Yau Tong.
The current proposal would link Kowloon Bay, through the Kai Tak area and the former airport runway, to Kwun Tong.
A development bureau spokesman said a ground-level tramway system is not considered feasible for the area because of a lack of space. --RTHK
