Escalator Refurbishment

The life expectancy of escalators in the MTR network in general is more than 40 years. For prudence’s sake, the Corporation will arrange a major overhaul for the escalators which have been in use for around 25 years. The Corporation has launched a refurbishment programme for the escalators in the network since 2002. Up to the end of the 4st quarter of 2019, 412 escalators have been refurbished.
