Hong Kong announces 9km monorail

14 Oct 11 Hong Kong’s secretary for development Carrie Lam has announced plans to build a new transport system in Kowloon East, including a monorail link.

The 9km elevated monorail will have 12 stations. It will link the Kai Tak commercial and business developments with the Hoi Bun Road development and the Kwun Tong Ferry pier waterfront development.

It is expected to be commissioned in 2023, at an estimated cost of HK$12bn (£1bn).

An 11km promenade will also be developed.

Permanent secretary for development (works) Wai Chi-sing said that the project will promote the regeneration of Kowloon Bay and Kwun Tong into a new central business district.
