The city’s Transportation Infrastructure Office (GIT) confirmed that training for local staff will commence once the operator of the LRT (Light Rail Transit) is determined.
The setup of the LRT operator, according to the Office’s statement, is currently under-preparation.
In an interpellation submitted by Kwan Tsui Hang, the legislator enquired about the Office’s progress and plans for the training and recruitment of local workers, noting that related training plans were not mentioned in the 2017 policy address.
The GIT admitted last month that there was a lack of related professionals in the city, in particular in professions such as operations and maintenance, adding that the government would invite specialists from outside the MSAR to provide advice and support.
Regarding local labourers currently involved in the project, the Office stated that local technicians are participating in the construction of the city’s LRT system.
The GIT also pledged that a concrete plan for localising the LRT team will be drawn up after the operator is established, stating that the Labour Affairs Bureau will approve applications and phase out related non-resident workers according to actual market conditions.
In order to attract more future talent to take part in the industry, the Office has launched promotional events at educational institutions.
During a press conference last month, government representatives announced the commencement of a public consultation in order to establish laws relating to the city’s LRT system, also revealing that the government would be setting up a private company to operate the LRT when the Taipa section is completed in 2019.
