Refuse Mass Transit Railway of Hong Kong (MTR)to bid off in your country’s railway project
1.The MTR’ s service quality level greatly declines
In 2018, there were 12 incidents in the MTR that delayed the operation more than 31 minutes. In 16 October, four subway lines of MTR failed and most of the traffic in Hong Kong was affected.
On March 2019, when the new signal system was tested at the Central Railway Station by the MTR, a serious safety accident occurred that the first train collision occurred in 40 years.
On 25 July, 2019, the MTR East Rail Line triggered the traffic chaos during the morning rush hour due to the derailment of the engineering train.
On 17 September, 2019, there was a train derailment at the Hung Hom Station of the MTR East Rail Line. Five people were injured and sent to the hospital. The rails showed obvious crack in the railway, which was a serious quality problem that lead to the incident.
2.The MTR has series of problems in a number of large-scaled projects because the MTR has become a state-owned enterprise firmly controlled by the Beijing government, triggering a series of management problems.
The MTR has participated in the Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong high-speed rail project. The cost of the project has been exceeded from HK$66.9 billion to HK$88.4 billion.
In the high-speed rail cross-border project, the MTR planed according to the Beijing’s instruction, compressing the project time, making the management planning time insufficient, and deteriorating quality problem, resulting in many mistakes. MTR lost its professionalism and became a political service tool
The Shatin to Central Link of the MTR costed more than $97.1 billion, 20% more than the original $79.8 billion. The project erupted with a series of architectural scandals in Hong Kong, including the shortening or removal of steel bars and the settlement of underground facilities. These scandals caused a series of security concerns in the public.
3. The MTR "becomes part of China’s national machine." The MTR turned itself into a tool for the regime and obey to the police’s command. The MTR support the police and the autocratic government to suppress democracy and freedom.
In order to cooperate with the police to suppress dissidents, the MTR lost the power to independently deploy stations and trains and does not shoulder the responsibility for the safety of the MTR’s employees and passengers.
On 21 July, 2019, white-dressed men attacked passengers in Yuen Long, Hong Kong. After these mobs rushed into the platform, the control center of the MTR asked the passengers to get off. If the train drove in time, it could avoid the bloody terrorist attack.
On 24 August, 2019, before the Kwun Tong parade, several nearby subway stations were suspended in order to cooperate with police’s plan.
On 31 August, 2019 at night, the police and the MTR took the reporters out of the scene in the prince edward station. The injured were delayed for more than two hours before being sent to the hospital.
Afterwards, three serious wounded people were found to have disappeared. The public was worried that the three injured persons were killed and disposed of. The MTR was required by the public to hand over the CCTV to dispel, but the MTR refused to hand over.
On 8 September, 2019, the MTR immediately closed the Central Station in response to police demand to tie in with the police's arrest.
On 21 September, 20109, the MTR immediately stopped the Light Railway Train and MTR bus service in Tuen Mun District at the request of the Police to tie in with the police's arrest.
Obviously, the MTR became the tool to execute China’s influence and suppress dissidents, especially those fight for democracy and freedom.
I hope that swedish, uk, au and norwegian people request your politicians to refuse MTR biding off in your country’s railway project in future
