Hong Kong’s West Island Line Now in Service

Alstom has successfully delivered the new signalling system for Hong Kong’s MTR West Island Line which started passenger service on 28 December, 2014.

Hong Kong’s West Island Line is an extension of the Island metro line and has three new stations serving 230,000 people.

Alstom has been involved in railways in Hong Kong for nearly 40 years. It won its first rail contract in Hong Kong in 1975. Since then, Alstom has supplied over 1,100 carriages, provided infrastructure systems to two metro lines and signalling systems to seven metro lines, including the West Island Line, Kwun Tung Line and South Island Line (East).
