East Rail Line - Stations


All the station platforms on East Rail Line, are on/above ground and open air. Lo Wu and Lok Ma Chau are part of closed areas and cannot be entered by anyone without a permit or a passport and visa to Mainland China. In May, 2008, MTR announced plans to renew these stations, most of which have been in service for over half a century. Refurbishment is not expected to be fully completed until 2016 at the earliest. The stations providing local commuter service on this line are listed blow:
