Past week, we questioned our visitors, “If you could increase a new MTR station in Hong Kong, where would it be?” Here’s what they experienced to say.

Sai Kung station. There is normally significant targeted visitors jam in Sai Kung no make a difference what time of the day it is. On wet times, it is even even worse. I just cannot stand the horning from vehicles and at times lousy language from impatient drivers when they are caught in the site visitors. It is not just a put of residency. It’s also the “back backyard garden of Hong Kong” wherever a lot of tourists check out. It surely deserve to have an MTR station.

I would build a station in entrance of my house so that as soon as I phase out the doorway I have immediate obtain to other stations. Due to the fact I am a recurrent late individual, my mates typically complain about my shortcomings. If I can preserve the time to go from house to the MTR station, I may possibly be in a position to arrive before. And it can also decrease the amount of late punishments.

Discovery Bay. There are only two techniques to go there now and which is why not numerous individuals know about this area. I wish everybody could come to see the major white church and beautiful ocean. Quite a few people are top a hectic daily life and this is a good position to chill out for the reason that it is much absent from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.

I would insert an MTR station in Tai O for the reason that I reside there and I want to be able to vacation to considerably areas conveniently! It would make travelling for individuals in Tai O way much easier as we really don’t have to acquire multiple transportations. It would also be a wonderful addition conserving time for staff and students! And there would be many much more seats for everybody to choose a relaxation.

It would be on Lamma Island. It is one particular of the best scenic spots in Hong Kong which inculcates with multicultural values and the splendor of nature. Its inhabitants is mounting to 10,000 people all through the previous 10 many years. Nevertheless, ferry is the only transportation concerning Central Pier and the Island, which can take about 30 minutes.
By adding a new MTR station on Lamma Island, it would seemingly shorten the travelling time, bringing comfort to citizens and readers. Inevitably, it can endorse the island as one particular of the greatest tourist points of interest in Hong Kong.

Sham Tseng. It is a coastal location in Tsuen Wan District with quite a few beaches of stunning scene. In addition to that, we can also check out the Tai Lam Nation Park and flavor the popular Backyard garden Roasted Goose. On the other hand, there is quite less transport accessed to the put so its pretty time consuming for people to go there. If I include a new MTR station there, people can go there conveniently, the delicious of Back garden Roasted Goose can enable additional persons to know.

Aberdeen. As a resident dwelling in Southern district, it would be substantially a lot more handy to reach the region in which we have far more decisions for eating and obtaining every day necessities. I will not have to wait around for the bus beneath a 30-anything-diploma-Celsius summer time midday. Probably it would be an incentive that motivates me to have a walk all around outdoors- but not simply just downstairs.
Yoyo Leung Tsz-yiu, 15, Christ College
The Peak. There are 3 means to get to The Peak: by bus, on foot and by the Peak Tram. But for folks who are not common with buses, it is also difficult to uncover out the place to get on the bus, and it is only accessible on vacations and weekends, which is inconvenient for these who want to go on weekdays. As many people choose to consider the Peak Tram, there are constantly a long queue which will
take a good deal of time to reach to the Peak. So if a MTR station can be additional in the Peak, it will be easy for a lot of men and women.
Jeff Hong Cheuk-hei, 15, CNEC Christian Faculty
I would decide on Shek Lei. My faculty is found there. With a new MTR station, persons from my school can have a new route. Possibly this new modify will be final result in less taxi seems in my school’s parking slot way too. Aside from this, my friends and I can return residence jointly so there will be no more lonely journey of returning property. Also, Shek Lei inhabitants will need to travel to the closest MTR station by bus everyday. A new MTR station not only providing them benefit but also lessening their day by day expenditures, killing two birds with 1 stone.

Content Valley. There are not numerous buses or minibuses that halt at Happy Valley. In the morning and at night, loads of learners and workplace workers line up for the buses, which can make it incredibly disheartening. If I overlook a bus, I have to wait for at least 20 minutes, which is very time-consuming! Also, if you want to go to farther places, such as Kowloon, you both have to choose the taxi or take the minibus and transform to the MTR.
If there was a MTR station in Delighted Valley, we would not have to be concerned about lacking the bus and could also go to a large amount of other sites devoid of changing the transportation.
