Station layout[edit]

Markers are provided on the northbound platform following the opening of Lok Ma Chau station. Two queues, blue and green, are set up at the boarding areas. The blue queue is for passengers travelling to Lo Wu while the green queue is for those travelling to Lok Ma Chau. Platform 1 is the termination platform of northbound trains after Lo Wu and Lok Ma Chau boundary crossings have closed, and so platform 2 (southbound platform) is the only platform for boarding.
