The Tsing Wun Stop (Chinese: 青雲站) is one of the MTR Light Rail stops. It is located on the ground at Tsing Wun Road (Chinese: 青雲路) near Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (IVE) (Tuen Mun) (Chinese: 香港專業教育學院屯門分校) in Tuen Mun District. It began service on 18 September 1988 and belongs to Zone 2. It serves IVE (Tuen Mun) and nearby industrial areas.

History[edit]

This stop was originally named "Lung Mun Stop" (Chinese: 龍門站) as it is located at Lung Mun Road (Chinese: 龍門路). Later, the section of Lung Mun Road near the stop was renamed to Ming Kum Road (Chinese: 鳴琴路), so the stop was renamed to "Technical Institute Stop" (Chinese: 工業學院站) as it is next to Tuen Mun Technical Institute (Chinese: 屯門工業學院). The stop was renamed again to the current "Tsing Wun Stop" in 2003 after Tuen Mun Technical Institute was renamed to Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (Tuen Mun) in 1999.[1]
