Overview

The light rail line, run by the Kowloon Canton Railway Corp, opened for business in 1988. Much in the way of the Shaker Heights light rail lines in Cleveland, the systems was built, in part, to serve the Tuen Mun development, also built and run by the KCRC.

The 8 route system consists of 31.7 km and 57 stops, and is mostly at grade. Several extensions are underway, including a 2.7 km extension to Tin Shui Wei, due to be completed in 2003. Reconstruction of grade crossings into grade seperated crossings are now taking place in Tuen Mun.

Other upgrades and extensions include integrations with the KCR West Line, also under construction, via a 1.7 km, 4 station loop to Tin Shui Wa terminus. Another 2.65 km, 5 station extension is planned. Though construction on the latter extension hasn't begun, it is expected to be complete for the opening of the KCR West Rail line.
