East Rail services between Mong Kok East and Hung Hom stations will be suspended once again on April 18, the third of ten suspension days this year to allow construction works for the Shatin to Central Rail Link.
MTR Corp said the East Rail services will end at Mong Kok East station, while point-to-point free shuttle bus services between Hung Hom and Kowloon Tong stations will be provided.

A special fare arrangement will also be in place on that day to ensure passengers not to be overcharged.

The first and second suspension days were on January 10 and February 21 respectively, while the other seven construction days will be confirmed consequently depending on weather conditions.
