Artifacts dated back to the Song-Yuan period found during construction works will be displayed in the new Sung Wong Toi station of the Tuen Ma Line.
MTR said starting June 27 when the line commences service, two cabinets will be placed at the station concourse of Sung Wong Toi station. The train company is now in discussion with the Antiquities and Monuments Office.
Passengers can also check out the bottom of a historical well located above the station, as the station roof will be converted to a transparent panel.
The art in the station is named “Earth Song” by local ceramic artist Fiona Wong Lai-ching. It presents a modern interpretation of the Song Dynasty with paintings of the time recreated in the forms of ceramics sculptures.
There will be six exits at the station. Exits B1, 2 and 3 will allow passengers to travel to Kowloon City, Olympic Garden and Argyle street. Passengers can travel to Dakota Drive and Sung Wong Toi Garden with Exit A and B as well.
Exit C is still under planning and it is subjected to the results of the archaeological survey.
MTR also added that screens at the stations of Tuen Ma Line will inform passengers of the capacity of the cars. Red light indicates the car is packed and green light indicates there is a lot of room in the car. Passengers can then move to cars with more space.
For the To Kwa Wan station, its art is titled “Home”. The art is created by artist Leung Mee-ping and the community. More than 100 residents shared pictures of their personal items and the unique stories behind.
