Tsuen Wan West Station

For a place in Tsuen Wan, New Territories, Hong Kong, see Tsuen Wan West.

Tsuen Wan West (Chinese: 荃灣西站) is an underground MTR station located in Tsuen Wan, the New Territories, Hong Kong. It's currently the only underground station on the It is located between Mei Foo and Kam Sheung Road stations. There is an emergency platform on the southern side of this station. The platform is much deeper than most others.

The construction of the station was very complex. It required the diversion of some roads, the demolition of two factories, part of a nearby park, and the relocation of a ferry pier which originally occupied the site.

There is a large bus and minibus interchange above the station, connecting it with most residential areas, factories, as well as shopping centres in the area. However, the station has had little passenger traffic since operation, prompting some to claim that it is the least used station on the system. The reason for this is partially because the station is on newly reclaimed land, meaning that it is not centrally located. At present, only a small number of residents in a few nearby residential estates and workers from nearby factories use the station. However, with the opening of the 80 storey Nina Tower (如心廣場) in 2006 , traffic is expected to increase.

Nevertheless, the waterfront promenade built along with the station's construction connected the two ends of Tsuen Wan, significantly improved the scenery of the area, and provides a leisure place for many residents of southern and western Tsuen Wan.
