Government invites MTRCL to proceed with detailed planning and design of Hung Shui Kiu Station
     ​The Chief Executive in Council has given approval for the Government to invite the MTR Corporation Limited (MTRCL) to proceed with the detailed planning and design of Hung Shui Kiu (HSK) Station.  

     HSK Station is one of the seven recommended railway schemes in the Railway Development Strategy 2014. It will be on the West Rail Line between Tin Shui Wai Station and Siu Hong Station, primarily to serve the transport need of the Hung Shui Kiu/Ha Tsuen New Development Area (HSK/HT NDA) in the future. 

     Upon full development, the HSK/HT NDA will accommodate a total population of 218 000, including 176 000 new population, and 150 000 new jobs. HSK Station will bring convenience to residents choosing to commute using railway and reduce travelling time. 

     A spokesperson of the Transport and Housing Bureau said, "The journey from the future town centre of the HSK/HT NDA to Tin Shui Wai Station now takes about 24 minutes during rush hours, while the journey to Siu Hong Station takes about 20 minutes. With HSK Station, the journey from town centre to these two stations by railway is expected to be about four minutes. It is estimated that HSK Station will save the public a cumulative total of about 314 million hours over 50 years of operation. The economic benefits, including the said time saving, of HSK Station are estimated to be about $55 billion in 2018 prices."

     The Government has invited the MTRCL to proceed with the detailed planning and design of HSK Station, and will further negotiate with the MTRCL on the financing arrangement of the project.  

     It is expected that construction of HSK Station may commence in 2024 for completion in 2030 to tie in with the development plan of the HSK/HT NDA.
