The Speakers
Mr . Philip Leung is an architect by profession. Joined the MTR Corporation Limited after working in station improvement projects for London Underground, U.K. Have been with the MTR for 15 years and is now the section manager of an interdisciplinary team of engineers providing design and engineering supports to the operating railways in Hong Kong. He is passionate in the application of Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) to enhance the building performance and workflow throughout the life cycle of buildings, from design, construction to operation and maintenance of building assets.

Programme highlights:
A typical metro station can handle more than 300,000 passengers per day. Vertical movement plays an important role in the passenger flows of Metro stations. Vertical facilities, such as escalators, staircases, and lifts, form the main channel for transporting passengers between platform, station concourse and local areas where the station serves. Many previous studies were focused on the relationship between speed, density and flow. Little attentions were paid to evaluating the provision of vertical facilities of stations in a comprehensive way, especially the human factor considerations in these vertical facilities. This study gets started with a summary of passenger flow characteristics in metro stations in Hong Kong. It is found that a couple of factors, including arrival process, standing patterns, the distance between escalators and automatic fare collection gates substantially affect the utilization of vertical facilities and the handling capacity of a station.
