The new signal system of the East Rail Line has been in service for nearly a month. During this period, accidents continued. The construction vehicles were exposed to "fake lights" about 20 times; the system also misjudged the train distance.
"Hong Kong 01" received news that at about 5 pm yesterday (2nd), that is, during the driving period, the train control center pointed out to all East Rail Line trains that they had "lost control", which lasted about 30 seconds.
The source pointed out that the train in motion was not suspended at the time, and believed that even if the system can support the continued operation, the operation should be suspended immediately for safety reasons.
