Kai Tak (Chinese: 啟德) is an underground MTR rapid transit station currently under construction. It is located on the Tuen Ma line, in the Kai Tak Development area of Hong Kong (near the old east apron of the former Kai Tak Airport in Kowloon City District). The station will provide access to the multi-purpose Kai Tak Stadium, currently under construction, as well as other facilities. The station is being built as part of the Sha Tin to Central Link (SCL), and is scheduled to open on Sunday 5 January 2020, along with the rest of phase 1 of the SCL (Tai WaiHung Hom).[1] Before Kai Tak Airport closed, the closest station to it was Diamond Hill.

History[edit]

The contract to construct Kai Tak Station (and the approach tunnels), valued at HK$1,422,000,000, was awarded on 25 April 2013 to the Kaden-Chun Wo joint venture.[2] The station was built using the cut-and-cover method. A topping-out ceremony was held on 16 July 2015. It was the second SCL station to be topped out, after Hin Keng.[3]

The station is expected to open in the first quarter of 2020.[4]

Station layout[edit]

The station has two levels: a concourse level above a lower level with an island platform.[5]
