|Tien says as many as 5,000 bars were cut short|
|How many other stations are affected by these shortened bars?|
How else can you assure the millions of passengers that depend on the service everyday?
While a spokesman for the MTR Corp did not confirm the numbers Tien gave, he said a report was submitted to the government to confirm that Leighton had completed the project according to the contract and relevant legal requirements.
The report has various information obtained from the contractors and the MTR Corp would leave it to the government-appointed commission of inquiry to follow up on the matter, the spokesman said.
This seems like a tacit way of not admitting fault...
Can we really trust the MTR with all of its lines now? With the revelation on Friday that pillars supporting the viaducts at the Yuen Long station on the West Rail Line had started to show signs of sinking since 2012 but that it was not endangering the public.
How come we are learning about this now?
The MTR's tag line "Caring for life's journeys" is ringing hollow these days. It really doesn't seem to care about what is going on with its construction or maintenance of its lines.
The commission of inquiry should shed some light on this serious issue and hopefully people will be forced to testify. We the taxpayers and public who use the MTR everyday deserve to know the truth.
