Technical seminar on KCRC's permanent way - the challenges and development

Date, time & venue 

Programme highlights
KCRC has been expanding its railway networks in the recent years. The West Rail System linking between Tuen Mun and Nam Cheong was opened to public at the end of 2003. The Ma On Shan Rail System was opened at the end of 2004. Lok Ma Chau Spur Line and Kowloon Southern Link are currently under construction and they will be opened in the coming years. There are many challenges in railway design and construction. The rail system must be safe, reliable, maintainable, user and environmental friendly. The permanent way system shall be designed and built to cope with the railway system's interfaces. For the track system, the interface with the civil, rolling stocks and signal system are the key factors that can contribute to the success of a new railway. 

Rail development is on going and the speakers will share with you the key challenges experienced in the previous rail projects.
