HONG KONG, Jun 16 (FAM) – Hong Kong’s negotiation with Beijing over a controversial joint checkpoint for a high-speed rail link to Guangzhou has reached its final stage, local officials claim, with sufficient time for the city to clear all legal hurdles before the project’s completion next year.

Outgoing transport minister Professor Anthony Cheung Bing-leung sounded an optimistic note for the planned joint immigration facility at the West Kowloon terminus on Thursday as he was due to step down by July 1 and make way for the next administration and its new ministerial line-up.
