Station layout[edit]

Diamond Hill Station Concourse
Diamond Hill Station Exit A1
Diamond Hill Station Exit A2

Platforms 1 and 2 share the same island platform. Space was reserved for the platforms of the East Kowloon Line when this station was built in the 1970s. This can be seen behind the advertising panels for each platform. The spaces for the reserved platforms are little more than untrimmed rock formations behind the advertising panels. This station will also be a station on the proposed Sha Tin to Central Link (with one new island platform). The Sha Tin to Central Link platforms will be built under those of the Kwun Tong line.
