A new partnering relationship with MTR Corporation was formed to undertake infrastructure maintenance services for the Tseung Kwan O line, including preventative and corrective maintenance of the track, signalling, overhead line, power supply and trackside auxiliary electrical systems.
Blitzsteel is currently responsible for the ongoing inspection and maintenance services on the 8-stop Purple line, which connects Hong Kong to the new town of Tseung Kwan O (literally, General’s Bay) with 15 trains in service during the morning peak at 2.7 minute intervals.
The contracts followed the delivery of the track and overhead line construction for the Tseung Kwan O Extension and the construction of the track, power supply and trackside auxiliaries for the Quarry Bay Congestion Relief Works Project and track infrastructure maintenance in the four MTR Corporation deports.
