Rumoured future map of the HK MTR

Hong Kong is blessed with one of the world’s most efficient public transportation systems, and you can get to most places in Hong Kong easily with the city’s metro system – the MTR (Mass Transit Railway). While MTR system consists of impressive 11 lines, 87 stations and 68 Light Rail stops, there are still places that have not been accessible by MTR. However, we’ve been hearing good news – that the train system is expanding! Several future projects on the MTR have been put forward by the MTR Corporation to the Hong Kong Government, with some already under construction.

You can learn about the newest project from the information we have directly retrieved from Official Hong Kong MTR website,
