Location[edit]

The original KCR plans had the station near the intersection of Sung Wong Toi Road and To Kwa Wan Road in the old Kai Tak Airport tarmac, but it has since been relocated near the junction of Ma Tau Chung-Argyle Street and Prince Edward Road West near Sung Wong Toi Playground.[1] The location will be roughly at the west end of the old airport terminal footprint and start of runway 13/31. Technically the station is located closer to Ma Tau Kok than To Kwa Wan. The new station location will be surrounded by the Kai Tak Development area.
