Whampoa Station

Whampoa Station (WHA) is located within the developed area of Whampoa Garden immediately adjacent to the stern of The Whampoa (Ship) which is a symbol of identity for the area and its history. The station consists of a platform tunnel between two separate concourses and is mainly underground except for the entrances and ventilation shafts. The West Concourse located at the junction of Hung Hom Road and Tak Man Street while the East Concourse located along Tak On Street and crossed by Shung King and Tak Ting Streets.

There are four entrances proposed for the station:

  • Entrances A1 and A2 are located at Hung Hom Road and connect to the West Concourse. Ventilation louvers are integrated with Entrance A1.
  • Entrance B1 is located at Shung King Street opposite to The Whampoa (Ship) and connects to the East Concourse.
  • Entrance B2 serves the Tak On Street and Tak Ting Street road junction. Air intake louver is integrated on top of the entrance.

In addition, subway / covered walkway / footbridge will be provided to enhance pedestrian connectivity from the station to Ho Man Tin and Oi Man Estates.

The station will be constructed by cut & cover method. Excavated spoil will be carted away to the barging point for disposal and the permanent structures will be built bottom-up using conventional insitu concrete construction.
