History

South China Morning Post reported on June 5, 2018, that according to sources, the MTRC plans for an additional station between the Tuen Mun and Tuen Mun South stations, displacing the current Tuen Mun Swimming Pool, along with 8,000 residential flats in the area.[7]

In May 2019, Michael Tien, former chairman of the KCRC and a panel member of the Panel on Transport of LegCo, announced plans for an additional station near Tuen Mun Swimming Pool. Tien also mentioned the possibility of adopting a "Rail + Property" model, where MTRC would fund the line construction, and the Hong Kong Government would provide land for building housing estates as compensation. It is anticipated that this development would result in the construction of 6 to 7 thousand private housing flats and 13,000 public housing flats.[8]

The construction of the station was gazetted as part of the Tuen Mun South extension by the Hong Kong Government in January 2022.[2] The environmental impact assessment was approved in July 2022.[3]
