Alstom has been awarded a contract by MTR Corporation Limited, Hong Kongs metro network operator, to build, install, test and put into service a 22 km-long track, which includes 6 km of depot and sidings, and a 25kV overhead line (including the catenary system) for the citys new Shatin-Central Link. The contract value for Alstom is approximately 41 million. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2018.

It is expected that in 2021 more than 1 million passenger trips will be made daily on the Shatin-Central Link which will connect several existing railway lines to form two strategic railway corridors, namely the "East West" and the "North South" corridors. The 22 km project assigned to Alstom involves the extension of the existing Ma On Shan Line from Tai Wai to the West Rail via East Kowloon to form the East West Corridor which includes seven stations.

We are very excited to contribute to Hong Kongs efforts in expanding its metro network. This great success further reinforces Alstoms position in the citys metro market and demonstrates our long-term partnership with MTR, said Dominique Pouliquen, President of Alstom Transport Asia Pacific and Alstom China Country President.

This is Alstoms third metro infrastructure systems contract in Hong Kong after the South Island Line (East) and Kwun Tong Line Extension contracts in 2012. The company has also cooperated with MTR on signalling systems, train renovations and other services.

Present in Hong Kong for more than 30 years, Alstom has supplied about 1,100 metro cars to the city and provided signalling systems to seven metro lines.
