HONG KONG, Dec 1 (FAM) – The government is expected to put forward a proposal by the end of December on how to implement the controversial co-location of checkpoints at the West Kowloon terminus of the troubled HK$84.4 billion express rail link to Guangzhou.

New People’s Party lawmaker Michael Tien Puk-sun, chairman of the Legislative Council’s railways subcommittee, said on Wednesday that he had gathered this news from various “sources”, but when he confronted transport minister Anthony Cheung Bing-leung in a private meeting, Cheung declined to confirm it.
