Sustainable Station Features
Innovation and Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) are embedded into every aspect of the project
The overall station design incorporates elements of sustainable development, with a target to attain BEAM Plus Gold Certification for the project
The overall design of Kam Sheung Road Station on the Northern Link incorporates elements of the rural and natural landscape in the area, local historical and cultural characteristics, as well as architectural features of the existing Kam Sheung Road Station on the Tuen Ma Line. This not only helps to realise the integration of urban and rural areas, as well as traditional and new generations, while promoting railway development in the community, it also integrates the design of the new Northern Link part and the existing Tuen Ma Line part of the station, thereby creating a harmonious visual experience for our passengers. The station is also equipped with an energy-efficient green roof and a rooftop solar photovoltaic system. There are also ingenious details in the design of the ceilings, which offer easy wayfinding for our passengers and facilitate passenger diversion, making their journey smoother. Examples of sustainable features of Kam Sheung Road Station on the Northern Link include:
Caring and barrier-free station facilities, such as passenger lifts, barrier-free accesses and public toilets will be available at Kam Sheung Road Station on the Northern Link for passengers in need, facilitating them to travel with ease. The station will also be equipped with a babycare room, providing a more comfortable environment for passengers to breastfeed and take care of their babies.
Use of innovative technology to enhance construction quality and work efficiency
Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology has been applied at every stage of the Northern Link project to visualise the railway structures’ internal and external design, making integration and communication on construction works easier. The project team is also actively studying the adoption of the Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) and Modular Integrated Construction method (MiC) to minimise on-site construction processes, thereby enhancing project quality.
