The government will urge the MTR Corporation to install platform screen doors at eight above-ground stations as soon as possible. In response to a legislator's question, the Secretary for Transport and Housing Eva Cheng said the rail company expected to finish the project before 2012. She said the government would ask it to shorten the time. An elderly man was killed last month by an oncoming train.
