West Island line to miss scheduled opening
(05-29 14:17)

The MTR Corporation says the opening of the West Island line could be delayed by about three months until early next year.
The railway blamed ground conditions at Sai Ying Pun station which are affecting construction of an underground passenger exit.
Its project manager, Mark Cuzner, said the line could be open by the end of this year as planned, if the government agreed that trains would not stop at the station. He said a decision on when to open the line will be made in October. --RTHK
