[East Rail/SCL/Hung Hom Station] The cross-sea section of the East Rail was opened to traffic today (15th). The role of Hung Hom Station has also changed, from the original East Rail terminus to a line transfer station.
With the opening of the sea section, Hung Hom Station has also been converted to a new platform. Passengers only need to go up and down one floor to transfer from the East Rail to the Tuen Ma Line.
The MTR said that as of 12 noon, there were 13,300 people entering and leaving Hung Hom Station.
What I saw at the station today is that there are people coming and going in the station, and a large number of citizens keep taking photos and taking pictures. Some people make a special trip to Hung Hom Station to visit, and praise the new platform of the East Rail at Hung Hom Station for its cleanliness and clear instructions, but some people can’t understand the art inside the station. device means.
The cross-sea section of the East Rail was opened to traffic. A large number of citizens took the lead in using Hung Hom Station this morning. Many people couldn't hide their excitement and kept taking pictures and recordings.
The MTR also arranges two to three staff members to hold signs at the exits and entrances of each escalator and answer questions from the public.
Although the signs are clear, listing the platforms where you can transfer to the Tuen Ma Line and the direct lobby, there are still people who are confused about the transfer and need to check with the staff as seen at the scene.
Miss Huang called the biggest feeling today as "refreshed".

Many citizens made a special trip to experience the cross-sea section of the East Rail this morning. Among them, Miss Wong, who lives in Kowloon Tong, and her daughter made a special detour to Hung Hom Station today, and transferred to the Tuen Ma Line to Tsuen Wan.
She said that she once studied at the Polytechnic University, so compared to the old railway station in the past, the biggest feeling today is the new look.
Huang said that after the sea crossing section is opened to traffic, there is no need to cross the sea through the CHT, which is believed to save time.
She also praised the clarity of the instructions in Hung Hom Station, and found that the number of signs with simplified Chinese characters has increased, such as the signs in the station.

Mr. Ng said that the ventilation facilities on the old East Rail platform at Hung Hom Station were insufficient, and the new platform was neat and clean. He thought it would be particularly convenient for citizens who work on Hong Kong Island.

As for Mr. and Mrs. Fu, who live in Hung Hom, they admitted that they would choose to take the MTR unless they go to the Causeway Bay area, which is a destination that is faster to reach by bus, and praised the increased frequency of the East Rail Line.
However, they pointed to the art installation in the station and said, "How old is it? How old is it?"
