Project Description

To provide a safe and comfortable travelling environment for the passengers, the Corporation is re-conditioning and restoring a total of 460 numbers of escalators in Urban Line stations to bring them back to an "as new condition".

The refurbishment programme has been launched since 2002 and will be completed in 2019. Up-to-date, over 50% escalators have been re-conditioned and put back into normal service. In 2013 alone, 32 escalators in Urban Line stations were re-conditioned.
