Wong Chuk Hang is an under-construction elevated MTR rapid transit station in Hong Kong on the eastern section of the South Island Line, built on the old site of Wong Chuk Hang Estate. It is named after the locality of the same name and will serve residents in that area, as well as connect to a public transport interchange to be built on a widened section of Heung Yip Road. A network of footbridges will be built to serve future commercial and residential areas, and the station will exist as a hub to the Shum Wan region as a whole. The station is scheduled to open at December 2016 or February 2017, with the rest of the South Island Line (East). The South Island Line depot will be located to the south. Commissioned by the MTR Corporation, Aedas, as part of the engineering team led by Atkins, were the architect for the station.[1]

A footbridge connection to various areas of Shum Wan will be provided. An exit will also connect the station to the planned Wong Chuk Hang Station Public Transport Interchange, for passengers to connect to other modes of public transport.

Wong Chuk Hang Depot[edit]

While the main station will take up the northern part of the former Wong Chuk Hang Estate site, an underground depot will be built to the south. This depot will service and maintain South Island Line trains. The depot will be completely sealed, and will be situated on sunken ground to avoid noise pollution to areas nearby.

Atop the depot, a residential estate will be developed by the MTRC. It will comprise 14 blocks with about 4,700 flats, as well as a commercial element.[2]


Wong Chuk Hang Station is proposed to be an interchange station between the eastern and western sections of the South Island Line. The platforms of the South Island Line (West) will be built over those of the South Island Line.
