The government of Hong Kong has agreed to the extension of the Tung Chung line in a westward direction.
The government has invited MTR to proceed with the detailed planning and design of the project. Consequently MTR has started the procurement of the preliminary design.
The Tung Chung line extension project consists of three parts:
The detailed design and planning is expected to last three years. Construction for the line extension should begin in 2023 and continue for six years.
The new Tung Chung East Station will be a key element of the infrastructure to support the Tung Chung New Town Extension (East) development. Tung Chung West Station, situated west of the existing Yat Tung Estate, will serve current residents and potential housing developments in the area, including the Tung Chung New Town Extension (West) planning areas.
“The Tung Chung Line Extension Project will benefit incumbent and future residents on North Lantau by improving the accessibility and providing railway connectivity to the core of Hong Kong. Together with the existing Tung Chung Station, the three stations in Tung Chung will also form an important transport infrastructure serving the community of the expanded Tung Chung New Town with due consideration of Government’s land and housing supply programme.”
The extension will measure 1.3km in length. The Hong Kong government has estimated the cost of the extension to be 19 billion HKD (2.25 billion euros | 2.45 billion USD).
