The Tuen Ma line (屯馬綫) is a Hong Kong MTR railway line due to open in 2019. Part of the Sha Tin to Central Link project, it will incorporate and join the existing West Rail and Ma On Shan lines via new stations along the Shatin to Central Link (Hung Hom to Tai Wai section). The line will have 27 stations, more than any other in the MTR system.[1]

During planning and construction, this line was codenamed “East West Corridor” (東西走廊) until 25 May 2018, when the finalised name was announced by MTR Corporation to reflect the districts of the termini it serves, namely Tuen Mun and Ma On Shan.
