    Kwun Tong railway development / Sleeper trains

    On Thursday's Backchat, we're talking about plans to build a new MTR line in east Kowloon.

    Citing a lack of railway services in hilly areas of Kwun Tong, authorities have proposed a seven-kilometre-long elevated line which would connect Choi Hung East with Yau Tong East.
    The project would cost about HK$264 million and be completed by 2033, with some lawmakers hoping to see it extended to Kai Tak.
    The trains would not require overhead lines and would be equipped with rubber tyres to increase their climbing capability on steep inclines.
    How feasible is this plan? And what are the challenges? We'll find out.
    After 9:45, we talk about the new high-speed sleeper train services connecting Hong Kong to Beijing and Shanghai.

    Fatal fire in Jordan / Greenpeace's waste-charging trial

    主持人:Andrew Work and Car Ha

    On Friday's Backchat, we're talking about fire safety -- after a blaze in Jordan left five people dead and more than 40 injured on Wednesday.

    Authorities have yet to confirm the cause of the tragedy, but a Fire Services Department spokesperson told RTHK earlier that some of the fire doors were broken, which may have led to heavy smoke in one of the staircases.
    According to a Buildings Department statement, the 60-year-old building had earlier been requested to carry out repair works, which includes the replacement of fire doors, and the provision of protected lobbies for the escape staircase. But the requests have not yet been met.
    How fire compliant are our buildings? What more can be done to improve fire safety?
    After 9:45, we find out more about a green group's waste- charging trial.
