Peak Tram upgradeFri 28 Dec 2018 Company News
We are proud to have completed the Interpretive Plan for the new visitor experience for Hong Kong’s iconic Peak Tram in association with designers Sarner for The Hong Kong and Shanghai Hotels Limited.
The cost of the HK$684 million upgrade project is being privately funded by HSH. According to the plan, the upgrades, to be introduced by the end of the year and completed in 2021, would see tram capacity increased by more than 75 per cent, from 120 passengers per trip to 210 passengers with longer carriages and replaced tracks. It will also allow more visitors to queue in a comfortable air-conditioned environment with an enhanced audiovisual-driven experience, making the waiting process more enjoyable and further enhancing the Peak Tram’s reputation as a landmark tourism destination.
Martyn Sawyer, properties director of Hongkong and Shanghai Hotels, which owns the tram company, pledged that the revamp would greatly improve ride efficiency and queue conditions for passengers.
