Project Description

The Ma On Shan Extension project involves the construction and operation of approximately 11.4 km of railway track from Tai Wai to Lee On. This included nine stations (at Tai Wai, Sha Tin Tau, Sha Kok Street, City One, Shek Mun, Chevalier Garden, Heng On, Ma On Shan and Lee On), a depot at Tai Wai and two infeed substations.

Mitigation Measures

  1. Various types of nose barriers were required along the entire railway alignment, including the use of a multi-plenum system along the viaduct sections, to protect about 100,000 people.
  2. Landscaping along all viaduct sections and elevated stations was included to alleviate visual and landscape impacts on the surrounding areas.
