Tsuen Wan West Station
Tsuen Wan West (Chinese: 荃灣西站) is an underground MTR station located in Tsuen Wan, the New Territories, Hong Kong. It is located between Mei Foo and Kam Sheung Road stations. There is an emergency platform on the southern side of this station.
The construction of the station was very complex. It required the diversion of some roads, the demolition of two factories, part of a nearby park, and the relocation of a ferry pier which originally occupied the site.
There is a large bus and minibus interchange above the station, connecting it with most residential areas, factories, as well as shopping centres in the area. However, the station has had little passenger traffic since operation, prompting some to claim that it is the least used station on the system. At present, only a small number of residents in a few nearby residential estates and workers from nearby factories use the station. However, with the opening of the 80 storey Nina Tower (如心廣場) in 2007, traffic is expected to increase.
Nevertheless, the waterfront promenade built along with the station's construction connected the two ends of Tsuen Wan, significantly improved the scenery of the area, and provides a leisure place for many residents of southern and western Tsuen Wan.
It should be noticed that although the station is at the same region of Tsuen Wan Station, the fare is quite different each other. For example, passengers have to pay HK$1.7-4.0 more if they are going to Hong Kong Island, although it is faster and more convenient. Besides, only out of system interchange is available for the pair.

“Say first, of God above, or Man below,
What can we reason, but from what we know?
Of Man what see we, but his station here,
From which to reason, or to which refer?
Thro worlds unnumberd tho the God be known,
Tis ours to trace him only in our own.
—Alexander Pope (16881744)

The daylight kissing her wan hair,
Loitered beneath the gas lamps flare,
With lips of flame and heart of stone.”
