Train Improvement Works - Phase I LRV Refurbishment
Phase I LRV Refurbishment before and after
The Corporation has recently completed the Phase 1 Light Rail Vehicles (LRV) Modernisation Programme. 69 units of Phase 1 LRVs were put in service in 1988. They already reached their mid-life of 22.5 years of age in mid 2010. This refurbishment works is aimed for enhancing their operability, maintainability, reliability and safety.
In addition to a fresher and more energetic look, the LRV saloon has been re-configured to provide a more comfortable travelling environment. All seats now face forward, handrails have been re-arranged for better passenger distribution and circulation while wheelchair spaces have been enhanced with seatbelts. New lighting, new LED displays and a new driving console are among the many new systems that have also been installed.
