We refer to Ms Claire Huang’s article (Safety under spotlight after trains collide in Hong Kong, 18 March 2019). The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is concerned and we are closely monitoring Hong Kong MTR’s investigations into the collision of two Tsuen Wan line trains on 18 March 2019. Initial reports indicate that the issue is linked to a software problem with the Tsuen Wan line’s new signalling system during the testing phase. For more details, please refer to the attached reply.
