Lai King is an
MTRstation located in Lai King Hill, Kwai Tsing District, Hong Kong. It is between Mei Foo and Kwai Fong stations. Its livery is crimson.
Lai King was opened in
1982, originally as part of the HK-MTR lines|Tsuen Wan. The station was designed to serve the large public housing complex located above the station, as well as the container terminal on the coast to the southwest of the station. When the Lantau Airport Railway was proposed, Lai King was chosen to be the interchange between the Tsuen Wan Line and the HK-MTR lines|Tung Chung.
During the course of construction, the layout of the station was greatly altered. The northbound Tsuen Wan Line track was raised to a new level above the original station, providing
cross-platform interchangewith the northbound Tung Chung Line. Similar platform arrangements were constructed for southbound tracks. The original Tsuen Wan Line track was abandoned from the sidings south of the station to slightly north of it. A pair of tracks were also constructed for the non-stopping HK-MTR lines|Airport Express.
Passengers on the Tung Chung Line travelling in the direction of Tung Chung can go to the opposite platform to change to Tsuen Wan Line trains for destinations in the Kwai Chung and Tsuen Wan districts and vice versa. The Tung Chung Line has proved popular among passengers living on Hong Kong Island who work in areas north of Lai King, and in rush hour, packed Tung Chung Line trains often empty at Lai King station.
Passengers on the Tsuen Wan Line travelling towards Central can go to the opposite platform to change to the Tung Chung Line for a faster route towards Hong Kong Island. In fact, once this interchange station is opened, many commuters who used to travel almost the entire length of the Tsuen Wan Line left the train at Lai King, and hence a large number of passengers is often seen in Tung Chung Line trains during the morning and evening rush.
