Shatin to Central Link

Shatin to Central Link

The Shatin to Central Link (SCL) is a 17 kilometres long railway project with two sections. The 11 kilometres long Tai Wai to Hung Hom section, which runs through Diamond Hill to Kowloon East, will link up the Ma On Shan Line and the West Rail Line at each end, forming the East West Corridor. The 6 kilometres long Hung Hom to Admiralty section will join the East Rail Line at Hung Hom forming the North South Corridor. The construction works commenced in July 2012. In view of the delay of 11 months arising from the archaeological discoveries and other factors encountered during construction, there is about a year delay in commissioning the project, i.e. the “Tai Wai to Hung Hom Section” deferred to end 2019 and the “Hung Hom to Admiralty Section” deferred to 2021. With the efforts of the construction team, the delay recovery measures implemented at the “Tai Wai to Hung Hom Section” take effects progressively. Hence, the target commissioning date of this section is advanced to about mid-2019, however, due to the Hung Hom Station incidents and associated investigations, the target commissioning date will need to be further reviewed. The commissioning date of “Hung Hom to Admiralty Section” remains at 2021. We will continue to coordinate and oversee the construction of the Shatin to Central Link, with a view to commissioning the project as soon as possible.
