    Let me answer you

    Sheung Wan is the western terminus of the Hong Kong MTR Island Line.

    It was originally built in 1970 as Western Market but its construction was discontinued after further planning for the new lines. Upon the construction of the Island Line, the station was finally constructed and opened in May 1986.

    Side platform, doors will open on the left

    Platform 1

    Island Line towards Chai Wan

    Platform 2

    Island Line termination platform

    Side platform, doors will open on the left

    These are side platforms built along Des Voeux Road from Cleverly Street to Rumsey Street. Although platforms 1 and 2 are parallel to each other and are on opposite sides, there is a wall separating the two tracks giving a false impression that both platforms are separated by a long distance from each other. Both platforms are slightly longer than those on other MTR underground stations. It has been suggested that this was the result of problems in calculations during the station's construction.

    Rumsey Street platforms

    The platforms of the original Rumsey station, originally planned as the southern terminus of East Kowloon Line, still remain in Sheung Wan station. They are located near Exit E, and they are perpendicular to the Island Line platforms below.

    Presently, the Rumsey Station platforms are incomplete platforms. They have a length of about three MTR EMUs (while normal trains have eight each), do not have tracks and overhead power lines, and have all the tunnel entrances sealed with bricks.
