The East West Corridor is a Hong Kong MTR railway link that is part of the Sha Tin to Central Link project. As with the other parts of the Shatin-Central Link, it has been approved by the Executive Council of Hong Kong. It will link up the West Rail Line and Ma On Shan Line through the Shatin-Central Link (Hung Hom to Tai Wai section). Before the rail merger, services on the operational sections of the line were provided by the KCRC. Completion of the line is expected for 2019.[1]
