More delays for rail projects
(06-12 16:20)

The MTR Corp has announced further delays to rail projects.
The railway's chief executive, Jay Walder, says the South Island Line and the Kwun Tong Line extension to Whampoa won't be completed on time.
Mr Walder said both projects are at least six months behind schedule, but stressed that everything would be done to speed them up.
It's the latest in a series of construction problems to hit the company -- which recently announced delays to the Hong Kong-Guangzhou express link and the West Island line.--RTHK
