Located on the Kowloon peninsula, Hung Hom Station, previously expanded in 1998 with the new concourse designed by Foster and Partners, has been extensively modified to become a super interchange station – connecting people from east to west via the Tuen Ma Line and north to south via the East Rail Line extension to Hong Kong Island.
Before the operation of Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link, Hung Hom Station was the only hub serving the intercity train to Guangzhou and other major cities in Guangdong Province as well as Beijing and Shanghai. It was also the terminal station of East Rail Line.
Hung Hom Station plays a significant role in the local rail network with the new Tuen Ma Line platforms commenced service in 2021, connecting two separate lines to from the city’s longest railway line. The station now also brings people from the Northeast New Territories and Hong Kong Island as the East Rail Line has been extended from Hong Hom Station to Admiralty Station via Hong Kong’s fourth cross-harbour tunnel.
A large-scale revamp of the station was needed for the rail system upgrade. WSP was the detailed design consultant responsible for the design of building services of the new station including the modification of the existing operating part of the station. Our services covered the associated modification of building services in all the operating East Rail Line stations, associated tunnels as well as the statuary and authority matters in relation to fire engineering and tunnel evacuation analysis.
