MTR East Rail Line Cross-Harbour Extension
Hong Kong

The long anticipated MTR East Rail Line Cross-Harbour Extension has officially commenced service, becoming the 4th cross-harbour railway in Hong Kong. The new route connects the Northeast New Territories, Central Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, with a total span of 46 kilometres. The new terminus will be extended from Hung Hom to Admiralty, passing through the new Exhibition Centre station in Wanchai North, totaling 16 stations.

Passengers from New Territories and Cross-Border no longer need to interchange and will directly reach the business areas of Hong Kong Island, providing a swift and convenient cross-harbor commuting arrangement. Direct route from Sheung Shui to Admiralty, about 15 minutes can be saved compared to interchanging twice in the past.

The interchange stations Tai Wai, Kowloon Tong, Hung Hom & Admiralty on the East Rail Line is linked to five other railways, including Tuen Ma Line, Kwun Tong Line, Tsuen Wan Line, the Island Line & Southern Island Line, defining the axis of the Hong Kong Railway system network, offering more travel options and strengthening the connection of the city.

The new Exhibition Centre station is located near the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, giving a new life to the development of Hong Kong’s commerce, conferences, exhibitions and tourism. Being the station closest to the shore, the color palette of the station adopted green and grey to represent the sea water in Victoria Harbor, and a photo exhibition of the harbour, the discovery of war bombs during underground construction and the history across the century. The station is akin to a part of the exhibition, immersing into the waves, colors, lights and history.

OPTIMIX supplied over 40,000 bags of our products to the Exhibition Centre station and Admiralty station, fully supporting the construction of the stations. Including prebatched concrete, skimcoats, and the essentials used in the iconic mosaic-tiling in MTR stations – tile adhesives and grouting, a new chapter is being written in the Hong Kong Metro.
