Walking from central to hong kong station


Hong Kong (Chinese: 香港) is a station of the Hong Kong MTR metro system. It is the eastern terminus of the Tung Chung Line and Airport Express, situated between Man Cheung Street and Harbour View Street, Central, Hong Kong Island, and sits underneath the International Finance Centre (IFC). It was opened in 1998.

The station is connected to Central Station by two tunnels. The walk between the two stations typically takes three to six minutes. The tunnels, which cross under Connaught Road Central, are equipped with moving walkways. The station, retail mall, pedestrian tunnels, footbridges and masterplan for the IFC development were all designed by Arup Associates (Hong Kong Office) in collaboration with Rocco Design Architects Limited, Ove Arup & Partners, and Meinhardt.

This station provides an in-town check-in service for flights departing Hong Kong International Airport and free shuttle bus services to most major hotels in the Central and Wan Chai areas.

Station layout

Although two Airport Express platforms have been constructed, Platform 1 is the only one in use. For the convenience of passengers, a taxi stand and a hotel shuttle service are provided on the same level once the passenger has exited through the gates.

The Tung Chung Line and Airport Express are located considerably far away from each other. The Tung Chung Line concourse is located one level below the Airport Express platform. There, passengers have to ride an escalator down one more level to reach the Tung Chung Line trains.

In July 2007, MTR installed two "Self-service Point" machines, for the first time in Hong Kong, at the Tung Chung Line platform. These unmanned machines help resolve passengers' issues such as having lost the ticket or being unable to use the Octopus card to exit. They also have a visual conference system so that the staff can help passengers out.
