Planning and design works of San Tin Station, including preliminary design, feasibility studies, ground investigation, etc., are underway. Stay tuned for updates!
The MTR Northern link connects Kwu Tung Station and Kam Sheung Road Station. San Tin Station is among the proposed stations that will help open up further opportunities for the urban areas of the new territories.
The San Tin Station is the first proposed intermediate station of the northern link. The plan is to construct this new station at the new San Tin / Lok Ma Chau Development Node. It will become one of the prominent public transport routes of the locality. The San Tin Station is the first proposed railway station in that area which means it can unlock uncountable opportunities for the local community and for tourists who are visiting there.
The San Tin Station plays a key role in Yuen Long District in New Territories as it will serve as an essential public transport service for the urban communities nearby. San Tin is also among those places where public transport is not developed. Previously there were no MTR stations in the locality. People used to travel in buses, minibuses, taxis, and shuttle buses for long and long hours to travel between interstate and beyond the border. The only available route was San Tin Highway. The Highway is a northeast-southwest expressway in the New Territories. The expressway connects Fanling Highway, Tsing Long Highway and Yuen Long Highway. San Tin Highway also belongs to Route 9. So if the MTR Northern Link project finishes, the nearby lands will develop more in terms of educational development, social development, political development, economical development and healthcare development.
The suburban area is known for preserving its old legacy. It's the Man Clan who looks over the village and has been preserving San Tin's 500 years old legacy along with various historic buildings and cultural heritage sites. Back in the early Ming Dynasty, there were five major family clans in the new territories. The Man Clan is among them.
The San Tin village includes Ping Shan, Ha Tsuen, Shap Pat Heung, Pat Heung, and Kam Tin village. And all the six villages together are called "Yuen Long Six Villages". In the Yongle period of the Ming Dynasty, one of the ancestors of the Man Clan, Man Sai Ko, moved to San Tin from Castle Peak and settled there. It's a mesmerizing village with so many historical buildings and architecture that were once built over 500 years ago.
Although there are so many places to visit in San Tin, the Man Ancestral Hall is among the top famous sightseeing places that attract hundreds of tourists. The hall was constructed back in the Ming Dynasty 500 years ago. It's an ancestral hall for the Man clan. The clan members usually used this hall for traditional clan festivals and celebrations such as weddings, ancestral worship, celebrations of Autumn Equinox, etc.
Another tourist attraction is the Man Lun Fung Ancestral Hall. This hall was constructed in the 17th century to pay tribute to Man Fat-PO (alias Lun-Fung), the 8th generation ancestor of the Man clan. Hall has a very traditional style structure with three halls and two surrounding courtyards between them. At first, it was used to serve as the office of the village patrol personnel and a school for the clan members. In 1983 the hall was declared a monument.
It's our long-term and sustainable goal to bring development to the urban areas of new territories. Our professional technicians and engineers are working non-stop to complete the initial planning and the design work of San Tin Station.
Being one of the intermediate stations on the Northern Link, the proposed San Tin Station will be located at the future San Tin / Lok Ma Chau Development Node. The station will serve the public transport needs of the Node and become an essential public transport facility in the area.
According to the preliminary planning of the San Tin / Lok Ma Chau Development Node, the San Tin Station will be located near the future town centre of the Node, adjacent to areas for residential, open space and mixed uses. The exact location of the station is currently being planned.

San Tin is also named San Tin Village. San Tin Village, together with Ping Shan, Ha Tsuen, Shap Pat Heung, Pat Heung and Kam Tin villages, are known as "Yuen Long Six Villages". During the Yongle period of the Ming Dynasty, Man Sai Ko, the ancestor of the Man clan, migrated from Castle Peak (nowadays Tuen Mun) to San Tin and settled in the area.
Built in the Ming Dynasty, with a history spanning over 500 years, the building is the ancestral hall for the Man clan, regularly used for traditional clan festivals and celebrations such as weddings, ancestral worship, celebrations of Autumn Equinox etc.
Built around the middle of the 17th century to commemorate Man Fat-po (alias Lun-Fung), the 8th generation ancestor of the Man clan. The building follows the traditional style, comprising three halls with two enclosed courtyards between them. This ancestral hall was used as the office of the village patrol personnel and a school for the clansmen. It was declared a monument in 1983.
