Tung Chung West Station
|Proposed MTR rapid transit station|
Islands District, Hong Kong
|Owned by||MTR Corporation|
|Operated by||MTR Corporation|
Tung Chung West (Chinese: 東涌西) is a proposed MTR terminus station of Tung Chung Line at the west of Tung Chung, Lantau Island, New Territories, Hong Kong, which would follow on from Tung Chung Station. When Yat Tung Estate (Trad. Chinese: 逸東邨) in Tung Chung West was constructed, the MTR Corporation and the Hong Kong SAR Government reserved a site to build the station. Due to insufficient population there, the station has so far not been constructed.
In 2013, Tung Chung West Extension was mentioned in the review and update of the Railway Development Strategy 2000, after the government launched the "Tung Chung New Town Extension Study" in 2012 to further expand and develop Tung Chung New Town. The updated strategy, released in September 2014 as the Railway Development Strategy 2014 (RDS-2014), confirms that planning is indeed underway to build the Tung Chung West extension, and that the projected cost is $6 billion. An "implementation window" of 2020 to 2024 was noted.
