Heng On (Chinese: 恆安) is a station on the Ma On Shan Line of Hong Kong MTR, named after the nearby Heng On Estate. It also serves other residential areas like Kam Fung Court, Kam On Court, Baycrest, Vista Paradiso, and Yiu On Estate. It also serves over 10 schools (including Renaissance College) and two sports centres – Ma On Shan Sports Ground and Heng On Sports Centre.

The print featured on the platform pillars and glass barrier is of farmland which used to exist in the Ma On Shan area.

History[edit]

The name of the station was formally announced by KCR Corporation in 2000.[1] Heng On Station opened along with the rest of the Ma On Shan Line in 2004.

The platform was doubled in length in 2014 as part of the Sha Tin to Central Link, which will extend the Ma On Shan Line trains from four cars to eight cars.
