Hung Hom Station was involved in a steel bar scandal
The passenger, Mr. Mok, entered the gate at Hung Hom Station and took the West Rail. He said that the location of the new platform is more convenient than before, "it will be there as soon as it enters the gate."
On weekdays, Mr. Mok would also transfer to the East Rail Line from Hung Hom Station, but he thought that it would be okay to walk 3 minutes to change the line immediately. What's the minute? It takes a few minutes for both inspections!" Mr. Mo also looked forward to the opening of the Tunma Line, saying, "Go to Wuxi Sha, don't turn left and turn right."
When asked about the scandal involving steel bar cutting in the expansion platform of Hung Hom Station, Mr. Mo said: “There will always be problems in the decoration of housing enterprises and they will often happen. Don’t think you want to magnify the matter.” Mr. Mo added, if Engineering problems are human-made, so someone should take responsibility.
However, he personally would not worry too much about safety issues, thinking that "there is a life stubborn to go, and there is no need to throw a rat-avoidance device."
Mr. Liu said: "At the beginning, I felt so far when I went there for the first time. There are signs along the road, so I won't lose my way." (Photo by Zheng Zifeng)
Mr. Liu, who transferred from the East Rail Line to the West Rail Line, also thinks that the route of the transfer is not far, saying: "The first time I traveled at the beginning, I felt so far. There are signs along the road, so I won’t lose my way." There are toilets on the platform level of the line, which is quite convenient. "There are no many stations." In the future, the Tuen Ma Line will be opened to traffic directly to Diamond Hill, making it more convenient for him to travel.
Regarding potential engineering safety issues, Mr. Liu said that he had never heard of it, but he was not too worried. He believed that most of the facilities in Hong Kong were safe. ".

Mr. Liu, a railway fan, visited the new platform at Hung Hom Station today. He said that the new platform is "wide and spacious." There are also some stone sculptures at the end of the station, which are quite distinctive.
Mr. Liu also said that it would take a three-minute walk to transfer to the East Rail, which is "some trouble." However, he also pointed out that when the Tuen Ma Line is opened in the future, he will be able to go directly to Diamond Hill and change trains, making it more convenient to travel.
Regarding engineering issues such as steel bar cutting, he frankly said that he was worried some time ago, but after a field visit today, he thinks that "there are no problems, on the surface there are too many problems," so he now feels more at ease.
