The station was originally opened in 1983 as an intermediate station of East Rail Line. In 2001, the station underwent expansion and construction ended in September 2004. The new concourse part was opened at first in the same month. Since 21 December 2004, the station has served as the terminus of the Ma On Shan Line, as well as the interchange station between these two lines. Passengers from the Ma On Shan Line can change to East Rail Line trains via a station walkway. The cross-platform interchange is similar to what is found at other MTR station.
