The government plans to locate a cross-border railway station in the West Kowloon cultural hub, business tycoon Stanley Ho Hung-sun has revealed. Mr Ho, chairman of the Real Estate Developers' Association, spoke against the plan yesterday, pointing out that it meant the 40-hectare site would have less land available for property development. 'I have received news that the government wants to put the station in West Kowloon. This is not very good,' Mr Ho said. 'The giant canopy is already very big - covering 55 per cent of the site - which means only 45 per cent of the land will be left open for development. If there is also a train station, not much land will be left over.' The station plan was confirmed by a spokeswoman for the Environment, Transport and Works Bureau yesterday. She said the government is considering building the terminus of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link at the cultural hub. She said the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation had been asked to study the details, but added that no decision had been made so far. It is the second time in less than two weeks that Mr Ho, a casino mogul, has heralded unannounced government decisions. He said late last month that chief executive contender Donald Tsang Yam-kuen had decided to open the cultural hub project to more than one property developer. That news was confirmed last week by Mr Tsang, who said the single-bidding approach would be scrapped. Mr Ho said yesterday: 'If the people of Hong Kong want the cultural hub, I will give it my support. Hong Kong needs world-class arts and cultural activities. The site is worth more than $200 billion: how can we hand a $200-billion site to one or two developers?'
