Railway Tunnel

Tai Koo MTR Station and Tunnels

Completed Project

The expansion of the MTR system through the Island line was necessary to accommodate the increased demand for housing and commercial space on the Island as economic development hit high speed in the 1980s. The Tai Koo twin tunnels and station were located at the eastern end of the line to serve the increase in demand from the nearby developments.

The works comprised twin tunnels and a station built in a 24-metre span rock cavern.
