May 17, 2014

Chief Executive CY Leung says the Government, as the major shareholder of the Mass Transit Railway Corporation, will pursue the people responsible for the express rail delay through the corporation s board of directors and management.

Speaking to reporters after returning from Europe today, Mr Leung said the Government commissioned the corporation to complete the express rail link project.

The expert panel to investigate the delay, announced this morning, will study whether both parties have any project management, monitoring and cost-control issues.

He added that these issues must be resolved to ensure there are no further complications in the express rail and other projects.

On liability for the delay, Mr Leung said the Transport & Housing Bureau has issued a letter to the corporation, and the two parties will continue their liaison.
