Executive Summary The Government’s Plan is costly and difficult to build. The West Kowloon Terminus is poorly located. The plan is socially and environmentally unsustainable. A group of experts from different disciplines has come together and designed an alternative plan.

Executive Summary This plan has two components: Building the express railway terminus as an integrated interchange at Kam Sheung Road (i.e. the Hong Kong Interchange ). Direct connection between the express train terminus and Central can be provided with an Extension of the Airport Express Line from Tsing Yi to Kam Sheung Road. This proposal can provide faster, cheaper, and better services than the Government’s plan.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
