'A number of parts of it [the MTR] will become so excessively used that at best the quality of service will decrease to an unacceptable level,' - consultant Alan Cooksey warning of the need to reduce demand, or expand, the Mass Transit Railway.

Delay-hit MTR told to get the message across

The MTRC must improve public announcements and facilities if it wants to avert panic and anger among commuters, says rail expert Alan Cooksey.

The deputy chief inspecting officer of the Railway Inspectorate in Britain said much of the public frustration with last month's nine delays was due to a 'misconception'.

MTR report unsatisfactory

THE Cooksey report on the coupling failure which allowed three carriages to become detached from a Mass Transit Railway train last month has proved a disappointing interim document.

MTR testing

BRITISH expert Mr Alan Cooksey yesterday carried out tests on train couplings as part of his inquiry into last month's MTR separation. The company last week submitted its findings on the April 27 incident, which left 83 passengers stranded in a tunnel between Tai Wo Hau and Tsuen Wan. Mr Cooksey will submit his findings this week.
