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 2020, 431 escalators have been refurbished whilst refurbishment work has also been started in ERL and TCL.
