The article 'Hong Kong rail bonanza beckons' (NCEI August) was incorrect in its assignation of the roles of the consultants which helped KCRC frame its proposal for the new railway.

Meinhardt was indeed responsible for the forth harbour crossing and the line's Hong Kong Island section, while Atkins China was responsible for the interchange at Hunghom and the section to the harbour crossing. The Tai Wai to Hung Hom (via Diamond Hill) section was undertaken by the Mott Babtie JV, a consortium of Mott Connell and Babtie Asia, the Hong Kong arm of the UK consultant, Babtie Group.
