Railway engineering research in Hong Kong
Ho, Tin Kin (2003) Railway engineering research in Hong Kong. In International Symposium on Transportation Science and Engineering for Global Chinese Scholars, 27-30 August 2003, Beijing, China.
Railways in Hong Kong have been one of the few successful stories in the major metropolitan cities around the world, not only for their profit-making operation but also the efficiency in dealing with the astonishingly high traffic demands every day. While railway operations require a chain of delicate systems working in harmony all the time, there are numerous engineering problems arising and jeopardising the quality of services. Research in various railway engineering problems is therefore a must to tackle these problems. This paper highlights the railway research works in Hong Kong and discusses their relevance to Mainland China.
