Storyline


Although Hong Kong's metro system resumed operations on Monday, the University Station has remained closed due to extensive damages suffered from violent protests staged by rioters over the past six months.

The University Station was severely damaged by rioters in the unrest of Hong Kong. It is clearly seen that the wooden board of subway route was completely burnt.

The station is located at the north part of Hong Kong and is close to the Chinese University of Hong Kong, which was the reason why the station became a major target for rioters on November 12. On that day, rioters targeted the metro station and paralyzed the city's traffic system.

It turns out that the major facilities were targeted by the rioters, because once it's damaged, it's easy to cross over and make more damages.

The entire screen of the ticket machine was taken off by rioters. The communication system was also affected. A speaker connected to the police and the staff of the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) station was broken as well. The screen of the information board was also smashed.

As the train passed without slowing down its speed, a staff member was arranged for to stand at the platform to ensure the safety of the construction there. More time is needed to repair the university station. The MTR said the amount of work required will be similar to rebuild the entire facility.

Since June, violent protesters in Hong Kong, incited by anti-China Western forces, have paralyzed the city's transport system, vandalized shops, torched public facilities, attacked police officers, turned universities into strongholds, and even stabbed and set ablaze people who disagree with them under the excuse of "pro-democracy protests", committing horrific crimes, threatening lives and trampling on the dignity of other residents.
