Exhibition Station is a under construction MTR interchange station on the proposed North Island Line and the North South Corridor. It will be an underground station located underneath the existing Wan Chai North public transport interchange, Harbour Road Sports Centre and Wan Chai Swimming Pool. It will serve the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre at Wan Chai North, Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong. The station will be completed in 2020.[1]

Description[edit]

The station serves the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, the Wan Chai Sports Ground, and various nearby office towers. It will be an interchange between the North Island Line and the North South Corridor of the Sha Tin-Central Link, offering cross-platform interchange between the two lines. The station is being designed by Farrells, in January 2015, MTR had awarded a contract to Leighton in joint venture with China State Construction to construct the station and western approach tunnel. Ground breaking of the station was held in the former Wan Chai bus station on 20th April 2015.

The station will be built on the site of the existing Harbour Road Sports Centre, Wan Chai Swimming Pool, and a bus terminus, which must all be demolished and reprovisioned elsewhere before construction shall begin. The swimming pool and sports centre are being rebuilt on the car park site immediately to the south. The bus terminus has temporarily relocated to the reclamation area near the new Wan Chai Ferry Pier.[2]
