Hin Keng Station (Chinese: 顯徑站) is an under construction MTR station of the Sha Tin to Central Link located near Hin Keng Estate, Tai Wai, Sha Tin, New Territories, Hong Kong. It will be an elevated station situated to the west of Hin Keng Estate and south of Hin Tin Playground. There will be one entrance approximately in the middle of the façade facing Che Kung Miu Road.

It will be built on the site of the New Territories South Animal Management Centre and Shatin Plant Quarantine Station, facilities of the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department, which were relocated to a new facility on To Shek Street in November 2013.[1]

Construction is well underway and a topping-out ceremony for the station was held on 30 April 2015, making Hin Keng the first Sha Tin to Central Link station to be topped out.[2]
