Burnt smell in Kwun Tong MTR Station, many amenities remain damaged


10th October 2019 – (Hong Kong) After Kwun Tong MTR Station is re-open to public today, many public amenities in the station remain damaged, the customer service department which was burned badly still has a strong stench. All ticketing machines near the area were out of service. Only Octopus cards can be used to enter through the gates and only half of them were in operation. There was no display to show the balance on the Octopus Cards. Many CCTV cameras were still damaged.

Two portable card readers were used to connect to existing gates while MTR staff were at present to assist passengers.
